siser® teacher pencil t-shirt

Make this super cute Siser® Teacher Pencil T-Shirt with your name across the front to wear and greet your students on the first day of school! Not teacher? It can also be the perfect gift for your child's teacher, a friend or even that graduate you know and love!
Step 1

First, click here for the pencil design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2 Now, design the name to go across the center of the pencil design.

TIP: To do this:

  • Click on ‘Text’ in the left panel.
  • Type the name you want to add to the design.
  • Choose the font and size to fit the pencil design.

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 to reverse your image; then click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen.

Step 5 Choose the material for your first layer and place the heat transfer vinyl (HTV), shiny-side down, onto your cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.

TIP: When working with multiple layers, be sure to work from the bottom layer up and pay close attention to the left panel on your preview screen to know which layer is cutting, so you know which color/material to load. If you are using a multiple types of HTV within the layers (such as glitter and/or flat), be sure to update the material type in Design Space™ so it knows the pressure to apply when cutting.

Step 6 Once your machine is done cutting each layer, use scissors to cut your design from the HTV rolls. 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 7 To iron, follow the instructions as noted on your HTV packaging.

Step 8 Place the carrier sheet with the first layer of your design, so it’s sticky-side down, onto your shirt. You should be able to see the layer through the carrier sheet just as it will appear once ironed.

Step 9 Use your iron to heat. Apply the appropriate pressure for your material for the time as noted on your HTV packaging; then flip over your shirt and press for another 15 seconds.

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.

Step 11 Repeat Steps 8-10 for each layer.
