I love making seasonal SVG files and for the past few months I made a Baby, It’s Really Freaking Cold Outside mug and my New Year, Same Mess t-shirt. I wanted to create a boy version of what I’m planning on showing you on Tuesday (it’s super cute). Create this easy custom t-shirt in no time.

How do I make a custom t-shirt?

To make your own custom t-shirt you’re going to need a few essentials. You’re going to need an electronic cutting machine and some Heat Transfer Vinyl (also known as Iron On or HTV). You will also need a weeding tool, heat press, Cricut EasyPress or an Iron.

To learn how to apply HTV in layers and with an Iron, click here.

You want something that has zero steam. You can use your iron but be sure that the temperature is correct and the steam function is off. Read your manufacturers instructions on what temperature to use and if your HTV is cold or hot peel.

When cutting your image from a Cricut or Silhouette, you need to be sure that the mirror function is on. You want to cut it in mirror mode and then you will weed or peel off what you do not want on your t-shirt. You do not want your image to cut completely through the carrier sheet.

Your entire image will be on the carrier sheet. Obviously, each color is different here so I had three images on three separate carrier sheets. I started with the Heart saying and then pressed for around 20 seconds, then the black for 20 and then the grey for 30 seconds, turned the shirt over and pressed for another 15 seconds.

When using multiple colors of HTV, you want to be sure that whatever you pressed before is covered before you press the next image. Just use the carrier sheet that you peeled off first and lay it over the red after you have laid the black image down.

Just to be clear, start with your red and press 20 seconds, peel off the carrier sheet from the red image and then lay your black image down. Place the carrier sheet from the red back over the areas that would be exposed when you’re pressing the black image. Do the same for the grey heart to ensure that the black and red are covered again.

Be sure to mirror your image! The Explore models have the smart dial and you can easily choose Iron-On vinyl.When you have a Cricut Maker, everything is chosen just like it’s a custom material. You have a list of items to chose from. There is either Iron-On Vinyl or HTV. Some people have chosen HTV and it cuts through the carrier sheet. Choose the Iron-On setting and you’ll have a perfect cut every time.Weed out the negative space of your Iron-On Vinyl and preheat your EasyPress to the correct setting. If using Iron-On Lite, choose 305 degrees.Plave a folded towel on a firm surface and place your Valentine place mats on the towel. Pre-heat the place mats for around 10 secondsand then plave your image where you want it. Press for 25-30 seconds, turn the placemat over and press again for the same amount of time.Peel off the carrier sheet and you’re ready. TO care for your items, wait at least 24 hours to wash. These placemats can’t be turned inside out but if you have clothes, be sure to turn them inside out when washing them.
