educator of tiny humans t-shirt

Make this adorable t-shirt for your teacher this year. Show they deserve to be recognized and they will love sporting this soft shirt with it's cute saying every time they wear it!
Step 1

First, click here to download the design file, then upload into Cricut® Design Space™.
TIP: To do this, click on ‘New Project’ and then ‘Upload’ icon in the left panel of your screen. Now, click ‘Upload Image’ and find where you saved the file on your computer. Choose ‘Simple’ for the image type and click on the hole for each feather to open it up for cutting. Click ‘Continue’ and then click ‘Save as a Cut Image’. Finally, pull the project into your canvas.

Step 2
Size the design as you would like it to appear on your shirt.
TIP: If you want to change any colors, to make it easier to keep track of your layers when cutting, do so, in the ‘Edit’ panel.
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 material for your first layer.
TIP: When working with multiple iron-on colors, be sure to pay close attention to the left panel on your preview screen to know which layer is cutting, so you know which color to load. Be sure to change the material if using more than one type.
Step 6
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 7
Once your machine is done cutting, 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 8
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 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 9
Place your shirt on top of your EasyPress™ mat and then preheat the fabric for 5 seconds.
Step 10
Place the carrier sheet, 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.
TIP: Press each layer, one at a time, starting with the bottom layer.
Step 11
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.
