Favorite Characters T-Shirt

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cricut. All opinions are 100% mine.

Everyone has a favorite TV show. My son currently love Bad Batch on Disney + and so I decided to make him one of those cute character name t-shirts that you see for everything. Making shirts is super easy with the Cricut Maker 3 and I’m excited to show you how to do it.

Supplies Needed

Tutorial

Open Design Space and start a new project. Type out the names of the characters as individual text elements. Then make them all 9.5 inches wide. Now hold down control to select them all and align them so that they are centered vertically. See what their combined height is. I was making an adult small t-shirt so my goal was to have the total design be no more than 11.5 inches in height. You may need to adjust the height of individual names or just them all together to make sure it’s not too tall. Play around with it and see what you like.

Once you have your design finished then you will want to make sure each Name is attached. Then click Make it. On the next screen you will see the design laid out on the mat. Click the Mirror button on the left.

Load your infusible ink transfer sheet with the ink side up. Follow the instructions in Design Space to load your material and tool. Once your design is cut you will need to peel away the pieces of the transfer sheet that are not part of your design.

Prepare your t-shirt blank. Lint roller it off. Then cover it with butcher paper and press it for 15 seconds at 385 Fahrenheit.

Then play your design on top with the ink side down. Cover it with the butcher paper and press it for 40 seconds.
