I’ve been enjoying making these free SVG files for you each month and so now we continue the tradition by making St Patricks Day SVG files for you to use. Please remember that these are personal use only files.
Supplies you’ll need for your St Patrick’s Day Shirt
- Cricut Maker, Cricut Explore, or Silhouette Cameo
- Cricut EasyPress, Heat Press, or Iron
- Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Weeding Tool
I love all these talented women and I’m so glad that we come together once a month to offer you guys these free SVG files. I’ve made cups, I’ve made t-shirts, I’ve made costumes, I’ve made a lot of things with SVG files and they’re really fun to experiment with.
Time needed: 10 minutes.
How to Apply Iron On Vinyl
- Cut your Iron-On Vinyl
After you’ve uploaded your design to your software, you will want to cut your Iron
–On Vinyl shiny side down and be sure the image is reversed. Your machine should not cut completely through the clear carrier sheet. You want your vinyl to have a “kiss cut” meaning it has cut through the vinyl but not the sheet it came on.
- How to Weed Iron-On Vinyl
Using a weeding tool or safety pin, remove all of the negatives of the
image. Leave the part of the image that you want on your carrier sheet so that the image will stay where it is supposed to.
- Prepare your surface
You’ll want to preheat your clothing to get all the moisture out. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on what temperature you need to press at and whether or not you need to peel the carrier sheet off while it is still hot or has cooled down.
- How to Apply Iron On Vinyl
Again, read the manufacturer’s instruction on what temperature you need to set your Heat Press or EasyPress on. The most common kind of Iron-On is called Siser EasyWeed. To apply to a cotton t-shirt, preheat your EasyPress to 305F degrees and press your HTV for 30 seconds. Remove while the carrier sheet is still warm.
- How to care for your garment after applying HTV
Wash your garment inside out and if you need to press, press it from the back. Hang dry or tumble on low heat.
How do I upload an SVG file to my computer?
Uploading the SVG file to your computer is really easy. You’re going to want to click on the link above and then you’ll save the SVG file to your computer. Pay attention to where that file has saved. I like to save mine always to my desktop so that I know where I can easily find them. I move them to other folders after I’ve uploaded it into my Cricut or Silhouette software.
If you use an Apple system, your file will automatically unzip when you double-click on the folder. If you have a PC, you’re going to want to find a program that helps you unzip the file. You cannot upload zip folders into the Silhouette or Cricut software.
