I designed my trendy t-shirts in Cricut Design Space using the Trendy T-Shirt Cartridge and Boys Will Be Boys Font. Don’t worry, you don’t actually need the physical cartridge to get the file. There is a cartridge section when searching in Cricut Design Space, and you can find it there.
When the design is perfect and the right size, send it to the Cricut to cut, make sure to click the box that makes your image mirrored for an iron-on. Also, make sure the dial is set to cut iron-on.
After the iron-on is cut, weed or remove the negative iron-on so only the pieces that will be ironed onto the t-shirt are left on the backing sheet.
Make sure to remove all of the lines, holes, and spaces in the letters.
Set an iron to the Cotton/Linen setting with the steam setting off. Use the iron to preheat the t-shirt fabric where you will be applying the stencil. Place the design, with the backing sheet up, onto the t-shirt.
I like to have an extra layer of cloth between the t-shirt and the iron to protect my t-shirt, but this will increase the ironing time a bit. Iron each section of the design for 20-30 seconds with medium pressure. Then flip the t-shirt over and iron again for 20-30 seconds over each section.
If there is a stubborn spot that just won’t adhere, take the tip of the iron and run it over the stubborn spot careful to not melt the carrier sheet.
Let the iron-on and t-shirt sit until cool to the touch, and slowly peel up on the carrier sheet. The iron-on should stay on the t-shirt, leaving the carrier sheet. If you come to a part that isn’t sticking to the fabric put the carrier sheet back down and go over again with the tip of the iron until it releases.
Ta-Daaaa! Isn’t it so cute? Here is the kicker, this is a movie quote too! Can you tell me what movie it’s from?
While I didn’t make ALL of the designs I created, I did make a total of three. I love them all!
Which one of the designs would you wear on a t-shirt? Do you get the movie quote jokes? And most important, do you think I should win the Trendy T-Shirt Contest? Share and leave a comment below!
