love honor and old bay tshirt

We're moving to Maryland in six days. I should be packing, calling utility companies, taking care of work deadlines...but instead? I'm making t-shirts! This shirt is a play on the old "love honor and obey" wedding vows...since the Army is moving us to Maryland and of course I would follow Don anywhere!

Easy Custom T-Shirt with Cricut Patterned Iron On

SUPPLIES NEEDED
Cricut Maker (but this project could be created with any Cricut machine) with Design Space
EasyPress
EasyPress Mat or towel
White Iron-On Lite
Filigree Blue Iron-On Sampler
Brayer (optional)

If you haven't laid your eyes on the new Cricut Patterned Iron On get yourself on over to cricut.com immediately! There are currently nine sampler packs available - everything from florals to watercolors to bolds and more. The packs come with three 12"x17" sheets (one of each pattern). I love that you don't have to buy a whole roll of one pattern - these samplers allow you to create a bunch of different projects from one pack. Onesies, tote bags, throw pillows, t-shirts - this is a game changer!


HOW TO CREATE A CUSTOM T-SHIRT WITH CRICUT PATTERNED IRON ON

Select your project in Design Space (for any of you crab lovers I share this t-shirt design here) and size to fit your shirt.

I cut my letters with White Iron-On Lite and my crab with one of the Filigree Blue Iron-On samples. Don't forget to put your iron on shiny side DOWN and mirror your image before you cut. TIP: I use the Cricut Brayer to give the iron on a strong grip to the mat - ESPECIALLY when I am using one of my older mats!

Once you've cut your images peel off the excess material.

Place the Cricut EasyPress Mat (if you haven't gotten your hands on this yet it is AMAZING) on your work surface then lay your t-shirt over it and place your iron ons.

Use the EasyPress recommended settings chart on cricut.com to set the temperature and timer based on the material you are using, and get to pressing! (Note: I used two different temperatures - one for the Iron On Lite and one for the Patterned Iron On.)

Cricut has added a TON of information to the settings chart, including whether to do a warm peel (peel off the backing immediately) or a cold peel (let the iron on cool before peeling off the backing). It also now has two separate charts for those who are using the EasyPress Mat and those who are using a towel. I can already tell a huge difference with my projects!

And just like that - a custom t-shirt! This Patterned Iron On from Cricut is going to change the way you create. I can't wait for you to give it a try!
