I’ve been having a blast figuring out all the things to create perfectly cut iron-ons with my Cricut for. Last time it was canvases, but this time the whole family were outfitted in Batman logos and comic words. Cricut issued us bloggers a little challenge. Make something wearable using plain white tees and Cricut iron-0n. Each guy or gal got their own little unique t-shirt redo.
Starting with an adult small I used a romper to create a template for my youngest’s outfit. Because babies heads are so big I didn’t even mess with the neckline. I simply folded both the shirt and romper out. Traced my outfit allowing about a 1/4″ for seam then did the same with the sleeves. Next, invert your romper and sew your sleeves on, sewing next your sides together. The last step is to hem your bottom and attach your fasteners. I have yet to complete this step, but plan on using snaps. I used the same fashion for turning an adult small into a 4t. Used one of my sons shirts as a pattern.
Next, was mom’s. I hate a boxy t-shirt so I opted something with a bit more style. A dolman top crossed my mind, but not enough fabric. I went with an easy tank. Simple as three cuts and one hem. First cut straight across the top of the shirt just below the neckline. Then, chop of your sleeves. Next, create a channel thick enough for a ribbon to go through on the front and back. I used some black jersey folded in half and seamed. This will become your straps. Once you’re done sewing take a big safety pin and put it at the end of your ribbon. Thread your ribbon through the pockets and tie in a bow across one shoulder.
The secret to this look is layering two cuts. My first cut was the Batman logo. The second cut the lettering. I then removed the letterings negative inside the logo and left the lettering on the outside. It created a really fun graphic. This is something you could do with anything. I’m planning to do a mustaches with my sons’ ages for their birthday in the fall using this same technique.
And here is my finished product. I was so excited to finally have a flattering girly superhero shirt!
