Create this easy DIY patriotic shirt with heat transfer vinyl and this free cut file.
I don’t think it is any secret around here that I love making shirts for my kids. I love using my Cricut Explore Air 2 and heat transfer vinyl to make shirts for holidays, vacations, and sometimes just for fun. Some of my favorite shirts have been these Lego Batman T-shirts and these Disney Castle T-shirts. When I saw this new Holographic Sparkle Iron-on I new I wanted to make a shirt for the 4th of July. Those sparkles were just too perfect for this DIY Patriotic Shirt.
I think the hardest part of this shirt was coming up with what I wanted to put on it. I decided to put my hand lettering to good use and I created a design. The free cut file is available toward the end of this post. I cut out my design and used the weeding tool to remove all the excess vinyl. I had to be very careful when weeding the firework heart. All those little pieces of firework wanted to come away with the excess vinyl I removed, so just go slow.
I first ironed on blue part of the design. Once it was cooled I removed the plastic and then laid the red design down on the shirt. I covered both designs with a light towel and then ironed over the towel.
To see how to upload the free cut file and cut it using your Cricut Explore you can watch this You Tube video. Or if you want to see a picture tutorial, see the link at the bottom of the post.
I love how quick this patriotic shirt was to make.
