Make Christmas T-shirts with Cricut

I have to confess, I’m hooked on making my own custom t-shirts since I got my Cricut EasyPress. I’ve even had a couple of fun crafting sessions with local friends to make t-shirts for Disney trips and for school spirit wear. They’re just so easy to make once you have the right tools to use with the iron-on materials like HTV. You can Make Christmas T-shirts with Cricut, too! I found this hilarious saying while scrolling through Cricut Access and after resizing it, I had a fun, new t-shirt in minutes. Also, be sure to see all of the other amazing Christmas Cricut projects from fellow bloggers down below. That machine continues to amaze me with what it can do!

Make Christmas T-shirts with Cricut Steps

1: Open a new project in Cricut Design Space. Click Insert Image and search for the image called “Christmas is too sparkly.” Select it and insert it into your project. There are loads of other fun sayings on there if this particular saying doesn’t strike your fancy. I almost chose the Obsessive Christmas Disorder one instead.

2: Resize the image to fit your t-shirt size. My shirt is a men’s XL, so I made mine 7″ x 7″ to fit correctly over my extra helping of boobs. I find that the sizing of the image in relation to your chest really makes a difference in how good it looks in the end.
