Making a T-shirt with Patterned Iron-On Vinyl from Cricut

This post contains affiliate links.
Special thanks to Cricut for sponsoring this post and providing many of the materials used.

I am so excited to work with the new Patterned Iron-on Vinyl from Cricut as well as the EasyPress and the new EasyPress Mat. For this project, I am using the Aquamarine Sampler by Natalie Malan. The blue colors are so pretty. My daughter picked the design from Cricut for her shirt. We are using elephant #M466A5 from the Wall Decor and More cartridge. 



I am using the new patterned iron-on vinyl from Cricut. There are currently nine packs of vinyl on the Cricut site. Each pack comes with three sheets of patterned vinyl that are 12" x 17". Cricut is also now carrying SportFlex iron-on vinyl to work on all tech fabrics. SportFlex is lightweight and flexible. I can't wait to try that out!

The above image shows the new EasyPress Mat and the EasyPress. I can't wait for my mat to arrive. It will make using the EasyPress so much easier. 


To begin, we needed to change the elephant file so that the pieces fit together like a puzzle rather than laying on top of each other. Cricut recommends against layering the patterned vinyl.
The first part of the video below shows how the design was edited. 

Thankfully my daughter was available to try on the shirt
and I used a piece of chalk to mark the location where she wanted the design.

Don't forget to place the vinyl pattern side down on your mat.
Before sending the file to cut, mirror the image in Design Space.

Once the designs are cut, weed out the unnecessary vinyl.

So, this is how the design will look when it is all together.

• The word from Cricut about the EasyPress and Patterned Vinyl heating instructions: 340 degrees, 10 - 15 seconds on the fabric alone, 50 seconds with the vinyl (on front), 15 - 20 seconds on the back of the fabric, cold peel.
