black cat halloween t-shirt

Browse through the trendy designs available in the Michaels digital design library to make your own Halloween t-shirt!

Step 1

First, click here for the digital design library on michaels.com.

Step 2

Download the design you would like to use for your t-shirt.

Step 3

Now, open Cricut® Design Space™ and open a new project. Click on the ‘Upload’ in the left side panel, click ‘Upload Image’ and the browse for the design on your computer; then upload into the upload image gallery.

Step 4

Choose the designs in the upload image gallery and click ‘Add to Canvas’ in the lower right corner.

Step 5

Size the design as you would like it to appear on your t-shirt.

Step 6

Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.

Step 7

In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel for each mat, to reverse your image.

Step 8

Now, click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen and choose the material for your first layer.
TIP: When working with multiple iron-on layers or materials, be sure to pay close attention to the left panel on your preview screen to know which layer is cutting, so you know which material to attach to the mat and load into your machine. Be sure to change the material if using more than one type (matte, glitter, foil, etc.).

Step 9

Repeat Step 8 for remaining layers.

Step 10

Place the iron-on material, shiny-side down, onto your cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.

Step 11

Once your machine is done cutting each mat layer, use scissors to cut your design from the iron-on material rolls. Next, use your weeder tool to remove all the excess material around and inside your design. You’ll be left with just the reversed design on the clear plastic carrier sheets, which are slightly sticky.

Step 12

Preheat your EasyPress™ to the appropriate temperature for your material and, if needed, adjust the timer.
TIP: See the Quick Reference Guide, included with your EasyPress™, for temperature and times or click here for an interactive guide. You can also use an iron to press your material. Just follow the instructions included in the iron-on material packaging.

Step 13

Place your t-shirt on top of your EasyPress™ mat and then preheat the fabric for 5 seconds.

Step 14

Place the carrier sheet with your design, so it’s sticky-side down, onto your t-shirt. You should be able to see the layer through the carrier sheet, just as it will appear once ironed.

Step 15

Place your EasyPress™ on top of the design, apply the appropriate pressure for your material and press the time button. Once it beeps, flip over your t-shirt and press for another 15 seconds. If your material is the warm peel type, you may go ahead and peel off the carrier sheet. If your material is a cool peel type, let it cool completely before removing the carrier sheet.
