A Christmas Story is hands down my favorite Christmas movie. I think it is the individual memorable moments that create one amazing movie to be remembered. Over the last couple weeks my kids have been requesting shirts with their favorite quotes on it. So today, I bring you this pink nightmare bunny shirt.
Pink Nightmare Shirt
For this project you will need:
- a blank shirt
- heat transfer in pink and dark pink
- heat transfer in white
- a Cricut
- Cricut EasyPress or Iron
- Cricut Brightpad
To make life really easy, you can find my cut files here. Follow the instruction below for resizing or creating from scratch.
Open up and sign into Cricut Design Space. Your screen will look similar to the above. There will be a top banner, followed by a banner of your latest projects. You can see some of my most recent projects on the screen above. Below that will be the Make it Now projects. Hit the green plus sign next your projects to get started.
Using Cricut Images
Your new project will open up for you as a blank grid. Click on the images tab on the left-hand side of the screen to start this project. Search for slippers in the top right corner. Scroll down until you find the bunny slippers and add them to your project. I added two of the straight on the bunny slipper and then removed the black background by hiding it on the far right side.
Add text by hitting the text button in the far left menu. A text box will pop up and you can type what you want the project to say. For this project, type Pink Nightmare in one box.
Once you have inserted the text into your project you can resize it and move it around. Resize the image by clicking and dragging on the double arrow symbol that appears when you have the image selected. There is also size box at the top of the screen that lists how big the text or image is, you can adjust the width and height here if you don’t want to manually toggle the blue arrow key.
Resize your image until it is the size you want it to be on the shirt. For my4-year-old, my text is about7 inches wide. Then resize the text so it fits over the top of the bunny slippers.
Select the text you want to curve and slide the diameter bar to the right to curve your text down and to the left to curve it up. Slide the bar until the text looks like you want it. For this shirt, we are just curving the words slightly around the slippers.
When your project looks the way you want it, it the Make It button in the top right corner of the screen. Hit the mirror image button on the right-hand side, your project will flip on the screen and look backward. Make sure you hit the mirror button on both the Pink mats!
Place the Iron on shiny side down onto your Cricut mat and then load your mat into your machine, spin the dial to iron-on and hit the flashing Cricut button. Repeat for the second pink color.

Peel the heat transfer off of your mat and then weed (peel apart) the iron on until just your design remains on the sticky backing.
Heat your iron up to the hottest setting or you EasyPress to 305 degrees. Place small square of qhite down, along with the words. Iron straight onto the plastic, making sure each element of the design gets 30 seconds of pressure and hit. Start pulling up the plastic backing and if any of the elements pull up at all, put the plastic back down and iron that area again.
Peel the plastic off and then repeat with the bunnies and then again with the inner ears.
