This DIY Mermaid Shirt was so fun to make and is perfect for Leila and her cousins. See how easy it is to use the new Cricut Iron On Designs available now. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
Leila and two of her cousins are obsessed with these t-shirts I made them coincide with a mermaid themed birthday party they’re going to be having later in May. Super cute and super easy and created in less than 2 minutes.
To use your EasyPress without the mat, preheat your Cricut EasyPress to 340°F and then set the timer to hold for 50 seconds.
When using the EasyPress Mat and EasyPress together, preheat your EasyPress to 340°F and then set the timer for 30 seconds.
Wait 24 hours before washing and wash inside-out.
Allow your EasyPress to heat up while you prepare the t-shirt. I grabbed each girl a hot pink shirt from Happy Crafters. They have really good prices and they’re better quality than the ones you can grab from your local craft store. For the Cricut Iron On Design, I chose this super cute mermaid. I made Leila and her two cousins matching ones for all under $20. Place the EasyPress on your blank shirt and preheat it for 10 seconds. Lay your design straight out of the package onto your desired spot of the shirt. Then place your EasyPress over the design and use medium pressure. Press for 50 seconds.The EasyPress fits over all their larger designs perfectly. There is no need to move it around, just press and you’re set.
After you’ve pressed your Cricut Iron On Design for 50 seconds, turn your shirt over, while the carrier sheet is still attached, and press the back of your shirt for an additional 10-15 seconds. Place your shirt to the side and allow it to cool 2-3 minutes before you pull the carrier sheet off of your Iron On Design.
When you begin to pull it, it takes a little bit of force to initially get the carrier sheet off. Your design has adhered so don’t worry. Begin with one corner and pull straight back. Voila! Your DIY mermaid shirt is complete and awesome!
