DIY Summertime T-Shirt

DIY Summertime T-ShirtEvery summer Will Smith’s Summertime automatically starts playing in my head. Summer, summer, summertime… I recently introduced the boys to this summer jam and they loved it! So when I saw Cricut’s new summer line of iron-on vinyl I had to make some Summertime T-shirts!

Summertime Tshirt Cricut Design Space

I started out by typing out the beginning lines of the song in the Cricut Design Space™. {I used the font Bebes Neue} Make sure you click the mirror image box when cutting iron-on. Place the iron-on vinyl onto the StandardGrip Mat, turn the dial to Iron-on; follow the prompts; and cut out the vinyl.

Weed the excess vinyl from around the song lyrics and arrange them onto the front of the t-shirt. Place a towel over the top of the of the vinyl and firmly iron over the top of the covered vinyl.
