floral compass t-shirt

This project uses Infusible Ink™ transfer sheets to make a compass design for a shirt. For best results, use only compatible Infusible Ink™ blanks for projects.
Step 1

Click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2
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, to reverse your image.
Step 5
Now, click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen and choose the correct material.
TIP: Be sure to pay close attention to the mat in the left corner of your preview screen to know which layer is cutting so you know which color/material to choose, especially when using multiple material types within a project.
Step 6
Place the Infusible Ink™ material, ink-side up, onto your lightgrip cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.
Step 7
Once your machine is done cutting each mat layer, use scissors to cut out each piece of your design from the transfer sheet(s).
Step 8

Next, 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.
TIP: Weeding is very easy Infusible Ink™ material! You can bend the material and the pieces will lift. Weeding can pretty much be done with your hands.

Step 9

Preheat your EasyPress™ to the appropriate temperature for your material and, if needed, adjust the timer.
TIP: See the Quick Reference Guide, included with your EasyPress™, for temperature and times or click here an interactive guide. You can also use an iron to press your material. Just follow the instructions included in the iron-on material packaging.

Step 10

Lay your shirt on top of your EasyPress™ mat and smooth it out with your hands. Now, insert a piece of cardstock inside your shirt to prevent bleeding to the back as well as protect your mat from any excess ink.
TIP: Use a lint roller over the area where you want your design to remove any dust.

Step 11
Place a sheet of butcher paper (included with your transfer sheets) on top of your shirt and preheat the fabric for 15 seconds to remove any moisture.
Step 12

Remove the butcher paper from the top of your shirt, place your transfer ink design on your shirt (ink-side down) and replace the butcher paper over your design.
TIP: When working with more than one layer, you will want to heat one layer at a time. Be sure to cover the already heated part of your design with butcher paper to prevent re-activation of the ink.

Step 13

Carefully place your EasyPress™ over your design. Hold in place with gentle pressure.
TIP: Be careful to keep the EasyPress™ very still on top of your design. Shifting the design in anyway can cause unfavorable results, such as “shadowing”.

Step 14
After 45 seconds of heat, carefully remove your EasyPress™. Again, try not to move your design. Let it cool for about a minute or so and then remove the backing from your shirt.
TIP: You want to remove the backing from your transfer sheet in one smooth action rather than slowly removing as you would iron-on material.
