One of the thing’s we look forward to during the Summer besides lounging or hitting the beach is shark week. My boys always wait for it with such anticipation and this year is no exception. The other day I was at the Joann craft store and saw they had shirts on sale, right away the boys asked if I could make them a shark t-shirt. Of course I said yes and we snagged up some shirts so I could customize them at home. Today I will show you just how easy it is to customize your very own shark t-shirt and as part of the Craft Lightning Challenge this project will and can be done in under 15 minutes.
Disclosure: I am part of the Cricut Blogger Program and I receive products/compensation in exchange for craft ideas. But all opinions are 100% my own. Some of the links used here are affiliate read my full disclosure HERE. Let’s get started by gathering our supplies:
- Cricut Explore Air 2
- Cricut Weeder
- Cricut Iron On Vinyl
- Plain T-Shirt
- Cricut EasyPress (or household iron)
- Cricut EasyPress Mat
Next you will need to open the Cricut Design Space and you can either make your own design or you can choose from the two designs I created. I made a FEED ME shirt as well as a COME TO THE SHARK SIDE shirt.After finalizing your design you will cut out your image. REMINDER: Since this is an iron on project make sure to MIRROR your image.While your design is cutting out on your Cricut Explore Air 2 turn on your EasyPress machine and set it to the recommended settings. Let it begin warming up.Once your design is done cutting out you will need to weed out any of the iron on that you do not need.Next iron your shirt with your EasyPress, place it on top of the EasyPress mat, and put your design on top of the shirt.Now you just need to use your EasyPress to iron on your image. When the timer has run out put your EasyPress back on the base and let the design cool for 15 seconds. Next peel off the carrier sheet and you have yourself you very own shark t-shirt. I hope this tutorial was helpful, I love that this project is easy and perfect for beginners.Before you leave check out the awesome iron on projects that these other wonderful bloggers have created.
