When we were in New York last year, we kept seeing these darling Mickey Mouse New York shirts all over the place. We loved them, but unfortunately for whatever reason, we couldn't find one in my daughter's size. When we got home one of the first things I did was sit down to make her one. I made this shirt using a Cricut Explore, I actually don't personally own the machine but was using a friend's. It was a fun to use machine and I love some of the easy features it has. This particular tutorial is for most of the basics, we will get more in depth in later ones.
You will need:
- A cutting machine
- Black glitter heat transfer
- Silver glitter heat transfer
- An iron
- A shirt to iron to
Hit print and go ahead and cut your vinyl. Make sure your machine knows what kind of material you are cutting, glitter is thicker than regular heat transfer. Weed the excess off of the heat transfer, until just the carrier sheet (Clear) and your design remains.
Preheat your shirt or other surface for about 3 seconds with a iron set at 325 degrees. Place the main design glitter side down on the shirt. Apply firm pressure on ALL parts of the design for 10-15 seconds. Flip the shirt inside out and apply heat and pressure on the design from the inside as well. Peel the clear carrier sheet off while the design is still hot.
This shirt comes together is less than 30 minutes and is a perfect reminder of a fun trip!
