Use your Cricut and free-cut files to make fun true-crime shirts or anything else for your true crime-loving self (or friend!)
If you get a stain on a shirt you’re trying to iron on, I show you how to use color remover to get it out here!
I recently wanted to put together a gift for a cute girl who loved true crime. What better way to show off your true crime obsession than a tee shirt? I put these together with my Cricut Maker and Easy Press. I’ve been using my EasyPress Totes a lot lately because I haven’t had a ton of time to be making at home. It’s really nice to have a way to bring it with me! Plus if you’re in a rush the heat protective backing of the tote is awesome and prevents any sort of problems like that.
What you need for your true crime shirts
First you’re going to cut out your cut file and weed it! I used my BrightPad for this weeding because I find with white iron one especially, it’s hard to see!
After it’s weeded you will iron on your vinyl. Heat up your EasyPress2 to 320 and press it on the shirt for 30 seconds.
I like to wait for the shirt to cool before I start removing the plastic but you can remove it warm too. If it’s lifting as you are removing the plastic, place it back down and redo the EasyPress portion.
Then you’re all done! So easy right?
The EasyPress makes this a project you can do in 15 minutes and if you’re doing a craft night or family reunion, it would be so easy to cut out some cut files and take them with you with your EasyPress 2! I wrote all about the EasyPress Totes in this post here so if you want to know what size to get stop by here.
