Have you ever tried to make t-shirts at home? Maybe for a school project with fabric paint? I have, especially when I was in high school and nothing ever quite turned out. Of course I wore it for the special event it was made for but it was never something I would wear again. I really wish the Cricut Explore was around back then! Heat transfer vinyl or Iron-in vinyl is my new favorite thing and guys- FOIL iron on is ahhhhmazing!! I'm pretty sure if you caught me out in this t-shirt dress you would never thing "Oh that's a craft project"! ha!

Step 1: Measure your Tee & cut out the graphic. Use a measuring tape to decide how large you want your graphic to be. I sized my graphic to be 8.5".  Watch the video below for uploading the SVG file for the #Happy graphic into the Cricut design space and cutting it with Foil Iron-on.

Step 2: Weed the graphic. Using a weeding tool remove the extra vinyl around the letters. You want to remove all vinyl that you don't want on your shirt.

Step 3: Iron on the graphic. Make sure to read the instructions on the vinyl packaging. Ironing the shirt before you lay the graphic down to heat up the surface helps speed up the adhesion process. The packaging does not say that you need to use a press-cloth, however I'm always nervous so I use one! :)
