Do you have beach fever? It’s pretty contagious this time of the year! Sunshine, water, great food…what’s not to love?!?! My daughter has been begging to feel the sand between her toes (and the backyard sandbox isn’t enough!). I pulled out my handy dandy Cricut machine and made her a shirt that lets us all know how she feels. Get the supply list and tutorial to make this shirt below!

Measure the front of the shirt to determine where the design should go and how much room that you have for the design. Measurements will vary by the size and cut of the shirt. The general rule of thumb is that designs should begin 3″ from the top of the shirt. Jot down the measurement and set this aside.
Open up Cricut Design Space. This project file is already conveniently designed for us. The original design is for a pillow, but I thought it would be a cute shirt. Find the design file HERE. Open the design and click “Customize” so that a new project canvas opens with the design on it. Resize the design to fit within your measurement that you jotted down above.
Send the design to the machine for cutting. Make sure that the iron-on vinyl is shiny side down on the cutting mat. Mirror all of the image mats.
Weed the designs to remove unnecessary vinyl after cutting.
Following the instructions on the Cricut EasyPress Heat Guide, place the shirt on the Cricut EasyPress Mat and use the Cricut EasyPress to adhere the vinyl to the shirt.
