Let’s get started!

Here are few supplies you will need to make this shirt:

First thing to do is figure out what size you need your design to be.  I use a ruler or measuring tape and lay it across my garment.  I want my design to be in the middle of my shirt and run across the chest.  So it seem like 10 inches is a good size for this XL women’s shirt.

Next, you need to download my free Valentine’s day file at the end of this post and Extract All. The SVG file will show up as a HTML doc if you are on a Windows Desktop Computer.  If you need more help on finding SVG file, please read my Q & A Page.

Open up Cricut Design Space and start a new project. Click upload image and go to your downloads folder to find my Sweet Heart Curvy folder.  Then select the SVG Cut file (or the HTML doc file if on a windows pc).

My SVG file is sized at 8 inches width. You are going to want to resize it to match your shirt size.  So enter the new size width in the Size section.

Now that you have it the size you want it, you can ungroup the SVG files to get it ready to cut.  After you ungroup you can select the pink layer group and right-click and hit Attach. This will cut all the pink layers as one piece.  If you don’t Attach then, all the letters and heart will be mixed up on the cutting mat. Do the same to the red layer group.

On the next page after you click MAKE IT, you will need to turn on mirror, on both mats, since we are working with HTV.  Turn on your Cricut and set the dial to IRON-ON+. I am using red and bubble gum pink Siser easyweed HTV from 143vinyl.com.

Make sure to lay your HTV/iron-on vinyl shinny side face down on your mat. Load each mat into your Cricut and cut.

Next, you can trim and weed of your excess vinyl.  Do this for both your pink and red layers.

I use this transparent ruler I got with my 24X18 pink cutting mat, to measure and evenly space my design on my garment.

Once you have the placement correct for the SWEET pink layer, you can place it into your heat press or press down with your iron. I use a piece of parchment paper to protect my design and shirt. I use my heat press on 350 degrees and press for 15 seconds at a time.  I press a total of 3 times for each layer.

For my second press, I take off my clear transfer tape off and place my next layer on.

I press each color layer separately, so I don’t have any vinyl over lap on the clear transfer sheets.

Make sure you press firm enough, so you can see the texture of your material through the vinyl.  This is an important step, so your vinyl doesn’t lift up after washes.
