diy pride rainbow tie-dye t-shirt

Show your PRIDE with this hand-crafted rainbow tie-dye t-shirt. Make one or make many, it’s easy when working with a dye kit and the Cricut®!
Step 1

Project Note: Wash all t-shirts prior to tie-dying to remove the sizing in the shirts.

Fold the t-shirt in the desired pattern you choose.

TIP: The shirts shown use the spin technique and the folded technique. 

Step 2

Follow instructions in the tie-dye kit.  

Step 3

When the dye set time is up, remove the rubber bands and rinse out the t-shirts with cold water. Now wash the t-shirts in a washing machine set at cold. Dry the shirts and iron if needed. 

Step 4

Cut out "PRIDE" from your Cricut® machine from Siser® heat transfer material. To do this:

   -  First, click here to go directly to the design in Cricut® Design Space™.
   -  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.
   -  Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.
   -  In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel for each mat, to reverse your image.
   -  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 5

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 6

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 7
Follow the instructions included in the iron-on material packaging to press "PRIDE"  onto the front of your shirt.
