The Book Was Better Funny Iron-On Vinyl Shirt DIY!

Using Cricut explore air 2 to make custom shirts
 The Book Was Better Funny Iron-On Vinyl Shirt DIY!
We all have that friend...or maybe we are that friend...you know, the one that loves books!  This is the perfect shirt for your book-loving friend.  I love reading books with my kids before the movies come out so we can compare them.  9 out of 10 times, the book was better.  There's a couple books that I didn't like as much as the movies...like The Princess Bride.  The book just was so hard to get into.  And while I love the Lord of the Rings trilogy, there were a few things that I loved the way they portrayed them in the movies--not the entire movie vs. book though...and definitely not The Hobbit movies!  But basically, as a general rule, the book was better!
Raglan DIY Iron-on vinyl shirt
 I used fun supplies for this project from Happy Crafters and Cricut.  Affiliate links included.
Happy Crafters sent me this darling Raglan shirt, which is District Made, my favorite shirt brand ever.  They are comfortable and a soft cotton blend, and they are true to size.  Perfect for all your DIY shirt needs.

Supplies needed:
Blank T-shirt
Marine Blue Iron-On Vinyl
Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine
Cricut EasyPress
Cricut EasyPress Mat
Books are nearly always better than the movies!
You can upload this png image right into Cricut Design Space™.  Or use the text tool and type it in.
This font is League Gothic.
Then mirror the image and place the iron on vinyl on the mat with the plastic side down.  Then set the dial to iron-on+ and click the cut button!
Next, use the Cricut tools to weed the excess vinyl away.
Set the EasyPress to 305* and let it warm up.  Place the shirt on the EasyPress Mat and then heat up the shirt for 5-10 seconds.
Remove the EasyPress and place the Iron-on Vinyl on the warm shirt.
Then place the EasyPress on the vinyl and set the timer to 30 seconds.  Press gently on the EasyPress.
Remove the EasyPress and see that the vinyl has adhered.

Turn the shirt over on the EasyPress Mat.
And place the EasyPress on the backside for another 10 seconds.
Then remove the EasyPress and let the Iron-on vinyl cool down completely.  Then gently peel back the plastic layer and remove it.
Super simple!  The shirt is done and ready to wear!  Turn the shirt inside out when washing to help protect the vinyl.
Custom shirts make the perfect gift!  Great for family reunions, summer camps and team shirts too.  There are so many wonderful things you can do with the Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine
Also, I bought these cute shoes from Hotter Shoes they are Leanne GTX® Shoes

What books do you love much more than the movies?
