First Day Of Preschool Shirt
To get started, I’ve uploaded the SVG to Cricut Design Space.
Next, I need to decide on the size I want it for my toddler t-shirt. The design I’m using comes pre-welded, which is a good thing to check before cutting it out. If the design is not welded, it will not cut as one, and will not be suitable for transfer.
The downside to a pre-welded design is that I do not have the option to ungroup the words and change them into different colors. So I’m stuck with using one color of HTV (unless I want to use the contour tool and separate all the elements in the design…).
Nevertheless, I think this design will look awesome in a single color anyway!
Since I’m just using one color of HTV, I’ve just got one mat. I’ve selected the mirror option so that the Maker will cut my design in reverse.
To cut glitter HTV, just search for glitter in your custom material settings and select ‘Glitter Iron-On’.
Place the glitter heat transfer vinyl shiny (glittery) side down on the mat. Leave plenty of room behind your machine if you’re using a Maker, as it will scan through the whole mat before cutting. You won’t need to worry about this if you’ve got an Explore machine.
