I love making holiday themed shirts! During high school and after I graduated, I loved having friends come over for T-shirt decorating parties. My friends would all bring their own shirt and I would have all the trimmings for decorations. I had fake fur, pom pom trim, sequin trims, fabric, buttons, sequins, and more...plus the hot glue gun to glue everything in place. 

My game has totally upgraded with the use of the Cricut. While my shirts don't stand out the same as having a giant fake fur heart on your chest, the Cricut shirts are ones you can wash and wear more than once!

There's so many possibilities with Cricut Infusible Ink...Check out all the details here.

Cricut Infusible Ink is super dull and off color when removed from the package. Through some amount of science or magic, this brightens magnificently when heated with the EasyPress 2. Place the desired Infusible Ink Transfer on the Cricut Mat with the pattern side facing up.

Then select the design in Cricut Design Space and have the machine cut it out with the Infusible Ink setting. I used the shape tool and made a 8 inch heart then added the word love that I wrote in calligraphy. Use the text tool and pick a font you like! 

Then select the heart and the text layer and "slice" them. Then delete all the layers except the heart with the word cut out. Mirror the image and then click cut!

Let the machine work its magic and cut the shape out. Then remove the cutting mat and the Infusible Ink and weed the excess material away.

Once the image is completely weeded it is ready to press on the shirt.

Place the shirt on an EasyPress Mat and heat the EasyPress 2 up to 400*. Use a lint roller to remove any lint from the shirt.

Then warm up the shirt with the EasyPress for a few seconds.

Then place the Cricut Infusible Ink on the shirt with the patterned side on the warm shirt. Don't fidget or adjust it, just place it down as accurately as possible.

Place the Cricut Infusible Ink on the shirt and press with the EasyPress 2

Then press the shirt for 40 seconds at a temperature between 385 and 400*. 


Then lift off the carrier sheet and plastic to reveal the most amazing smooth transfer ever!


Repeat the process for a smaller heart shape on the sleeve. Go ahead and use as much of the Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet as you want. Add hearts on the back of the shirt or smaller hearts all around!


Place the heart on a warmed up shirt and then cover with the butcher paper that is included in the package. Then press with the EasyPress 2 for 40 seconds. 


Finally peel off the carrier sheet for the most vivid and wonderful transfer. The shirt is smooth and so professional looking! I love iron-on vinyl, but this stuff is amazing! I need some that works on black shirts...


Now you can decorated and make shirts for every holiday and every occasion in between!


Cricut Infusible Ink needs to be applied on a fabric with a high polyester content. These Cricut shirts are polyester, but super soft. Infusible ink can be used on tote bags, coasters and other fun blanks too!


That's it!
