For Lucas’ first birthday, I made this easy to make ONE first birthday t-shirt with my cricut and iron-on vinyl. Here’s a super quick tutorial if you need a last minute first birthday outfit.
- T-shirt: $2.44
- Vinyl: I used a 5″x3″ section of a $7.50 vinyl roll. I have plenty of extra vinyl for other projects.
- 30 minutes
Steps to Make
STEP 1: Access My Cricut Design Space Project Here
STEP 2: Click “Make It”
Make sure you mirror the text above by clicking the toggle to the left!
STEP 3: You mirrored your text, right? Ok, just checking! Place your vinyl shiny-side down on the mat & cut.
STEP 4: Peel the excess vinyl away from the carrier sheet. Here’s an example from my Mommy and Me Happy Camper T-Shirts. You should be peeling the vinyl back from the top of the clear carrier sheet.
If you’re new to iron-on vinyl, watch the below tutorial to understand how to do this.
STEP 5: Follow instructions on your specific vinyl to iron material onto your t-shirt.
For my Paper Studio white vinyl, it required 25-30 seconds of medium pressure on both sides. I used parchment paper between the iron and the vinyl carrier sheet.
STEP 6: Peel back while warm.
