Does anyone else have a daddy’s little girl? My girl has her dad wrapped around her little finger. Forget boys; her daddy is still her valentine! And it doesn’t help when I make her cute shirts like these. Her daddy loves it when she proclaims her love on a shirt for all to see.

This shirt began with a story. While browsing the OshKosh website one day, I came across these super cute I {Heart} My Mom shirts for the triplets. The shirts were on clearance for $3 or $4 a piece, which is definitely cheaper than I could ever make them. I thought that they would be perfect for Valentine’s Day!

However, I couldn’t find a similar shirt for my daughter. So I pulled out my Cricut and made my own.

Supplies:

I’m using one of the Varsity fonts in Cricut Design Space. I use it to type the text and added a heart shape. If you need help changing the font in Cricut Design Space, see my tutorial.

Be sure to mirror the image before cutting!

Place the iron-on vinyl with the clear liner side down on the cutting mat.

Weed the excess vinyl from the cut.

Lay the shirt on a heat proof surface. Place the design (with the liner still attached) on the front of the shirt. Heat the iron to the wool setting. Lay a thin cotton piece over the design. Press the iron on the cotton piece in sections. Do not rub the iron over the design.

Peel the liner off and make sure the design is attached completely. If needed, place the cotton piece back on the design and iron until the heat transfer vinyl is adhered.
