back to school t-shirt

Make a t-shirt for your little miss (or mister) to wear on her (or his) first day of school!

Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.
TIP: Hide (or delete) the translated version you do not need.

Step 2

If needed, size the design as you would like it to appear on your shirt.

Step 3

Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.

Step 4

In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel for each mat layer to reverse your image.

Step 5

Now, click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen and choose the correct material.

Step 6

Place the iron-on material for the first layer, shiny-side down, onto your cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.

Step 7

Repeat Step 6 with remaining layers.
TIP: When cutting with multiple material types, such as matte, glitter and/or foil, be sure to watch the preview panel so update the material type so your machine knows how to cut each layer.

Step 8

Use scissors to cut the design from each iron-on material roll. Next, use your weeder tool to remove all the excess material around and inside your design. You’ll be left with just the reversed design on the clear plastic carrier sheets, which are slightly sticky.

Step 9

See instructions included with your heat press to attach your design to your shirt.
TIP: Press each layer, one at a time, starting with the bottom layer. Be patient as this design has multiple layers.

Step 10

If your material is the warm peel type, you may go ahead and peel off the carrier sheet. If your material is a cool peel type, let it cool completely before removing the carrier sheet.
