cricut® infusible ink™ i "heart" my moms toddler t-shirt

Cricut® Infusible Ink™ is new technology that results in permanent and professional transfers. The easy to use material cuts beautifully with your Cricut® machine and use your Easy Press™ 2 to heat transfer! Show your support with this I "Heart" My Moms Toddler T-Shirt and see for yourself just how easy it is to make!
Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2

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

Step 3

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

Step 4

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

Step 5

Now, click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen and choose the correct material.

TIP: Be sure to pay close attention to the mat in the left corner of your preview screen to know which layer is cutting so you know which material to choose, especially when using multiple material types within a project.

Step 6

Place the Infusible Ink™ material, ink-side up, onto your lightgrip cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.

Step 7

For the foil and holographic iron-on vinyl, place your material, shiny-side down, onto your cutting mat; then, load the mat into your Cricut® machine and press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.

Step 8

Once your machine is done cutting each mat layer, use scissors to cut out each piece of your design from the transfer sheet and iron-on rolls.

Step 9

Next, 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. Set the foil and holograph iron-on pieces aside for now.

TIP: Weeding is very easy Infusible Ink™ material! You can bend the material and the pieces will lift. Weeding can pretty much be done with your hands. However, the weeding tool makes it much easier with the iron-on material.

Step 10

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. 

Step 11

Lay your shirt on top of your EasyPress™ mat and smooth it out with your hands. Now, insert a piece of cardstock inside your shirt to prevent bleeding to the back as well as protect your mat from any excess ink.

TIP: Use a lint roller over the area where you want your design to remove any dust.

Step 12

Place a sheet of butcher paper (included with your transfer sheets) on top of your shirt and preheat the fabric for 15 seconds to remove any moisture.

Step 13

Remove the butcher paper from the top of your shirt, place your transfer ink design on your shirt (ink-side down) and replace the butcher paper over your design.

Step 14

Carefully place your EasyPress™ over your design. Hold in place with gentle pressure.

TIP: Be careful to keep the EasyPress™ very still on top of your design. Shifting the design in anyway can cause unfavorable results, such as “shadowing”.

Step 15

After 45 seconds of heat, carefully remove your EasyPress™. Again, try not to move your design. Let it cool for about a minute or so and then remove the backing from your shirt.

TIP: You want to remove the backing from your transfer sheet in one smooth action rather than slowly removing as you would iron-on material.

Step 16

Adjust the temperature and timer on your EasyPress™ to account for the foil iron-on cut-outs in your design as noted in the interactive guide.

TIP: The foil and holograph iron-on materials have different temperature settings so be sure to adjust your EasyPress™ as needed.

Step 17

One layer at a time, place the carrier sheet with your design, so it’s sticky-side down, onto your shirt. You should be able to see the layer through the carrier sheet, just as it will appear once ironed.

Step 18
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 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.
