You know I can’t help myself when it comes to making shirts for the kids. And why should St. Patrick’s Day be any different. I whipped up this pinch proof shirt for the kids so they will be ready to sport their green on the big day.
To make this St. Patrick’s Day Shirt you will need:
Cricut Maker or Cutting Machine
Iron on vinyl or heat transfer vinyl (they are the same thing, just sometimes called different names)
Plain White Shirt
St. Patrick’s Day Cut File
Once you have downloaded and unzipped the St. Patrick’s Day Cut File, upload the SVG into Cricut Design Space. Open the cut file onto your canvas and size it to fit your shirt. Select the design and size it to fit your shirt.
Be sure to click the mirror image button on the right hand under the cutting mat view. Place the iron on vinyl facedown onto the cutting mat. The colors on each side will look similar, so make sure to place the vinyl shiny side down. Load the mat into the machine and select iron on as your cutting material. Click the green blinking go button on the machine to begin cutting.
Unload the mat from the machine and remove the vinyl from the mat. Use the weeding tool to remove the unwanted vinyl from your design. Flip the design over and place on your shirt shiny side up. Keeping the protective plastic cover sheet on the vinyl until after you have ironed the design onto your shirt.
How to make a St. Patrick’s Day Shirt
Set the EasyPress 2 to the recommended settings for iron on. Lay the shirt on the EasyPress mat and once the design is placed where you want, press the shirt with the EasyPress 2 for 30 seconds on the front. With the plastic cover still on the vinyl, turn the shirt over and press for 15 seconds on the back.
Everyday iron on is a warm peel. Which means you can remove the plastic carrier sheet once you’re done pressing, even though it is still a little warm.
I think this will be a fun shirt for anyone to wear on St. Patrick’s Day!
