Iron-on isn’t just for plain tees. Learn How to Make Personalized Shirts with Iron-On Vinyl. This Cents of Style shirt turned out great!
One of the main reasons I got into design was that I wanted to customize everything. I was not a fan of the styles of anything 9 years ago. Thankfully, Pinterest came along and I have to say I want ALL the things now, but I still like to make things my own. This Staci shirt from Cents of Style is adorable on its own. It’s comfy and cute and looks great with skinny jeans or leggings. I decided to add a little extra glam to this shirt and I’ll show you How to Make Personalized Shirts with Iron-On Vinyl!
What you Need toMake Personalized Shirts with Iron-On Vinyl
- FREE Bow SVG File (download below, for personal use only)
- Staci shirt
- Jade Glitter Heat Transfer Sheet
- Cricut Explore Air
- Iron and Ironing Board
First off, you need a shirt that doesn’t have designs on it. Cents of Style sent me this shirt because I’m a big fan of black, but you can find nine other color options for the Staci shirt.
Next, choose your vinyl. I used Expression Vinyl’s Jade Glitter Heat Transfer Sheet. I love how this color stands out on the black, but there are plenty of other options to choose from. I do highly recommend Glitter HTV material because it seems sturdier to me.
You’ll also need a design. I use my Cricut Explore Air to cut out this bow (and you can download the SVG file FREE at the end of this post). After you download the file and save it to your computer, you’ll need to upload it to Cricut Design Space.
I created a tutorial for creating Glitter HTV tees a couple weeks ago, so head over to that post and get the tutorial! You do the same thing with these shirts as you do with regular tee shirts. It will show you how to cut out the bow out and iron it onto your fabric. If you have a heat press, all the better! I tried one out for a Girl’s Night a couple weeks ago and I REALLY want one, but they’re gigantic and thinking about storing it kind of gives me anxiety. Ha!
