Customize a plain shirt using iron on vinyl! You can make all sorts of designs for custom projects and family vacation tees when you learn to use Cricut iron on vinyl on a shirt!
Lately I’ve been writing more basic Cricut tutorials—things that beginners need to know to make the most of their machine right out of the box. Today we’re talking t-shirts. Whether you want to make a one-off shirt for an event or a dozen different shirts for a family trip to a theme park, you’ll want to follow the tips and tricks in this post to get the best results.
I’ve been crafting with my gorgeous Wild Rose Cricut Explore Air 2, which is exclusively found at JOANN. This is part of my series talking about why I’m a #fearless crafter, but this tutorial also applies to making shirts with the Cricut Maker!
Let’s get started!
What T-Shirts Work Best with Cricut Iron On?
When looking for shirts for your iron on project, I suggest going with 100% cotton, 100% polyester, or a 50/50 blend of the two. I have found that quality counts when it comes to your shirt—a higher quality shirt is going to have a better result with iron on vinyl.
You can use other shirt materials, like nylon, though you’ll want to make sure you’re choosing the right type of iron on vinyl to get the best result, as you’ll see in the next section.
What Type of Cricut Iron On Vinyl Works Best On Shirts?
For cotton and polyester, Cricut Everyday Iron On will be your best choice for “regular” vinyl, and almost all of Cricut’s specialty vinyls like glitter and foil will work as well.
The one exception is if you want to use an “activewear” shirt material, like nylon or stretchy polyesters. Then you’ll want to use Cricut SportFlex Iron On. It’s designed to stretch with the material, meaning that it’s less likely to crack or peel.
Preparing a Shirt for Iron On Vinyl
Before you make your shirt, pre-wash it. If your material is prone to shrinking, you’ll want it to shrink before you put the iron on vinyl on your shirt. If you do it after, there’s a chance it might crack or peel off after the first few washes.
I also like to iron my shirt before I get started. Not only does this give a flat surface to work on, it helps me lay out my shirt evenly, so I know that I am getting my cut out in the center of my shirt.
Cutting Iron On to Use on a Shirt
Let’s start by cutting our our iron on to use on our shirt. I created this fun file in Cricut Design Space that says Full Hands, Full Heart. You can make this file, choose one of the thousands of other images in Cricut Design Space, or upload your own!
As a business owner and a mom of young twin boys, I have gotten more than my fair share of “woah, you have your hands full!” comments over the last four years. You really do have to be #fearless to be an entrepreneur or a twin mom…and I’m BOTH!
The “hands full” always makes me want to roll my eyes. My boys are pretty darn easy kids and while having twins was hard in the beginning, it’s awesome now.
Built-in best friends who had to learn patience and sharing from day one? Yes please! They make it easy for me to run my business—they can play independently from me more than any other kids I know.
So now when people tell me my hands are full, I usually respond with “my heart is full too!” I designed this file in Design Space to be a cute encapsulation of that sentiment.
Before cutting your file, make sure that it is sized however large you’d like the decal on your shirt. Use Cricut’s templates to help you size your decal correctly (click here for a detailed post on using templates).
Then click Make It in the upper right of Cricut Design Space to cut your project!
In the Prepare Screen, you’ll see that your two colors of iron on are split onto two mats. Before continuing, you MUST make sure Mirror is turned on for both layers. Iron on vinyl cuts in reverse, so this step is vital if you do not want your words to be backward on your shirt.
Then place your iron on face-down (shiny side down) on your cutting mat.
If you are using a Cricut Explore, turn the dial to “iron on.” If you are using a Cricut Maker, you’ll choose iron on from the materials directly in Design Space.
Then insert your mat into your machine by pushing the blinking arrow button. Press the blinking C and your vinyl will cut! Cut both layers.
Once your layers are done, you’ll want to weed them. This means you’re removing anything that doesn’t belong on your decal. In this case, that’s the iron on around the heart and inside the letters. I have an extensive post on weeding iron on vinyl that you’ll want to check out.
Now you’re ready to adhere your iron on to your shirt! I love using my EasyPress 2. I have an iron, an EasyPress, and a heat press and 99% of the time turn to my EasyPress over the other two heating methods. Find out why by checkout out my comparison post. I’m using this gorgeous new Rose EasyPress 2, which is also an exclusive at JOANN. It comes with bonus iron on vinyl as well—everything you need to get started making a project!
I am loving all of these shades of pink in my craft room!
Lay out your shirt on an EasyPress mat or folded towel on a solid surface. Make sure it’s flat and even. You don’t want your decal off center because you didn’t take the time to make sure your placement was correct.
Place your two layers of vinyl on your shirt to get the ideal placement. Then remove one layer so you’re only working with a single layer at a time.
Make sure to check out my post on layering iron on vinyl for even more information. Obviously if you’re working with a single layer, you just have to do this process once.
Regular iron on vinyl has a temperature setting of 315°. Press for 30 seconds.
Peel back the plastic carrier sheet and your iron on should adhere to your shirt. If not, press again.
Then place your second layer down. I actually cut as close as I could to the bottom edge of the pink (after I took this photo) so it wouldn’t leave an imprint in the black vinyl. I also use a piece of fabric between my iron on and my EasyPress. This way the already-pressed iron on doesn’t come in contact with the plate of my EasyPress. It can lead to bubbles.
Peel off that second carrier sheet. Then flip your shirt inside out, and do a 15-second press of your iron on from the backside. Sometimes I think this final press is the secret to getting really good adherence!
You’ll want to make your shirt last! Make sure not to wash it for at least 24 hours, giving the adhesive time to cure. Then wash, inside out, in cold water. Hang to dry and then enjoy wearing your DIY shirt!
Mother’s Day is right around the corner! Get your #fearless mom or friend a new Wild Rose Cricut Explore Air 2 or Rose Cricut EasyPress 2 from JOANN!

Kathy Rojas says
I have the explorer 2 and I’m using Apple IPad Air I don’t see a Templet icon to size my designs on my shirts also Tks for sharing the videos they’re great
Love how Simple you make this look! Do you have to apply a lot of pressure with the Easy press?
Loved the video, like step by step instructions 💗
I loved your links on other topics such as layering vinyl! I learned alot of helpful tips from your blog!
Thank you so much for sharing. I love hearing about how others work with HTV.
I love this. And I love your craft room. AMAZING!!
I’d love to snag one of these
Kyeisha Hall says
Beautiful work! I honestly didn’t know about this page until my friend, Vanessa shared it on Facebook just now. This is a great blog! Every day we can learn something new.
I had no idea about doing another press after flipping the shirt inside out. I will definitely start doing this!
Love that design!
I need this easy press to match my maker 💗
I’m a new follower and I must say I love you craft room!
Sarah Blankenship says
Thanks for the tips! I am having so much trouble figuring out how to use my cricut!
I would LOVE to try the EasyPress!!! I got my Cricut for Christmas and have made 2 iron-on projects so far using an iron and I’ve had some peeling. Looks like you get professional results with the EasyPress and the process is so quick! I would LOVE an EasyPress for Mother’s Day ! ❤️
Thanks for an easy tutorial!
April Ruiz says
Love all your creative creations , and are so inspiring. Me and my daughters have been so excited using the cricut maker but now with more idea juices flowing through our minds we can’t wait to see what we can see what we can produce and we have just been using old fashion ironing and can’t wait to see how it would make thing more enjoyable and ease and better results in working with some of the upgraded products like the easy press . You make it seem so easy and oh so cute items love seeing to apply these ideas to shirts , onesies, shirts , totes , and hopefully other items as well like the cereal containers was such a great idea . Thank you for blogging and having us as followers .
Kristina Y says
You make it look so easy!

Thanks for the tutorial! I will be checking out the rest and contemplating an easy press 😊

Thanks Cori! So many good tips for iron-on in your post!
Joyce R says
Great tutorial! I would love to win this!!
Amanda Guthrie says
The easy press looks so much simpler to use than an iron since you can set an exact temperature and time to press! The first time I did iron on I melted the carrier sheet with my iron because it was too hot and I didn’t know it. 🤦🏼♀️
Rebecca Turner says
Such a great blog!
Lilly Dohanich says
So easy to follow along! Thanks so much!!
Thank you for this post! Any suggestions when using Foil Iron On. It seems I always get bubbles :(

Nancy B says
Thanks for a great tutorial!
Nicole K. says
This is an excellent tutorial! I’ve been using my Cricut maker and iron on for a few years now and love my orignal easy press. I’ve been wanting to upgrade to the 2 for some time now.
Tam Myers says
I’ve been really wanting an EasyPress! I have a Girl Scout Troop and I’m planning to have them make their own shirts. Many of them are interested in making stuff to sell to raise funds for our service projects too. This would make it so much easier!
Sara R. says
I’ve wondered how the easy press works compared to a heat press. I like using the heat press but it takes up a lot of space and is not easy to move around. The easy press seems to more practical option.
Sandra Philalack says
Thank you for sharing this! I’m new at this cricut world but always love reading your blogs on helpful hints, tricks, and ideas.
Elise Laney says
I love my EasyPress too. It is sooooo much easier than my iron.
Great detailed tutorial East press seems to be close enough to a heat press vs and regular Iron
I need this press! I have a huge one, but my office is now turning into a nursery for my sweet girl. This is the perfect size!
Your tutorials and blog posts are the best. I have them pinned on Pinterest, so I can easily refer to them when I’m working with my Cricut, especially vinyl!
What a beautiful creations! My fav blog now!! Yayyyy 👐👐💖💖
Thanks for the tips! What a great tutorial!
Would be awesome to win! I’m so obsessed with rose gold! Also thanks for giving me the feeling that I can make stuff cause you make it easy enough to follow along!
Laine D says
I would so love to have an easy press! No more applying vinyl and ironing on the dining room table!
Sammantha Mendieta says
I really enjoy your blog. I haven’t found one that I actually enjoy, is easy to navigate & understand.
I love this soft Rose color. I have been wanting to try an easy press from Cricut, but have just resorted to my iron for now. Thanks for providing amazing tips in your blog to make things a little easier. ❤
Just started doing iron-on tshirts! Thank you for the tips!
Thanks for the tips. I’m busy making Baseball shirts but I’ve been using my iron.

This is a great step by step!
Danielle D says
Thanks for the great tutorial!
Helen Bisesi says
Very cute shirt! I love to do iron on but haven’t tried layering. That will be something to try this summer I hope!
Just getting started! I am so excited for this new adventure as a cricut artist. Your videos, blogs, and posts have been helping me with the basics. I have always been a crafter since a child. Taking after my grandmother. She would have loved all these inventions we now have the opportunity to embark our creativity with.RIP Grandma this adventure in my life is for you! 💖
Love your tips! I just got a cricut last month for my birthday and have loved seeing all of your creative ways to use it!
Evelyn Medina says
Very informative!! Thanks for sharing your experience! Definitely want to get to customizing!!
Samantha Shinkle says

Monica Garcia says
Luving everything you do, trying to learn my cricut and ur such a big help, want to be just as awesome as u, thank u for all the tutorials.
Evelyn Medina says
Ty for the information!! So inspiring!
How do you best place your shirt vinyls? Sometimes I feel like they look right on the shirt, but then look too high/low once I put the shirt on. Any tips? Necklines tend to mess me up, too… I will get the placement right for a deep v, but then, it looks crazy on a crew neck.
Karen Gutierrez says
What are the benefits from using the easy press compared to a big press?? I’m debating on which of the two to get.
I would soo like to win this! Thank you for the opportunity!!!
I could make shirts for my Husbands football players and coaches! Live the tutorial, answers so many questions.
What a cute design! The finished shirt looks great!
Thanks for another great tutorial!
I love the ideas I get from your insta and your blog! It’s inspiring!
I love this project! Simply adorable!
You makes this look so easy!!! I always nervous of layering HTV. Thanks for the tips.
The layering advice & best products for athletic wear was SO helpful! ❤️
Suzanne V Rogers says
This has been on my wish list for long time
Kristine Kerby says
Heather Payne says
I wasn’t sure how much of a difference an easy press made versus an iron. Based on what you’ve said, I feel like I’ve been missing out!
Stacie H says
Great tutorial. Thank you!
Kristine Ramos says
This project is so cool! Thank you for sharing! Love your blog and Instagram, and the color on that press is gorgeous!!
Kyli Mecum says
Do you have to put a lot of weight on the easy press? Just Just wondering how the vinyl holds up. Does it get enough “pressure”
Love it! Thanks for an easy tutorial! 😊😊
Heather Hoy says
Love this. Great shirt. Thank you for a great explanation!
Love your craft room
Rachel L Shewmaker says
Love everything you do.
Allison Y says
I have an ooooooold cricut, and seeing all the fun, cool stuff you can do makes me want to get a new one!
Do you have to push / apply pressure with the easy press or just sit it on? And do you have to count how long it’s on or will it tell you?
Nancy M says
Regarding the time, you set the time on the easy press and once you press start it counts down for you and beeps when times up. I dont know if youre *supposed* to press down or not. Good question. Maybe someone else can answer that. I do though. :)
Pink is my fave!!
I have been working with my vinyl cutter for almost 2 years now and I have wanted an easy press since the beginning but continue to use my regular iron. 🤷♀️
rosella erdmann says
love the video thank you
Ann Snowgren says
Winning this press would make my iron on projects so much easier and this blog was a great help
You don’t know how many shirts I messed up using my regular iron, an easy press would be so much easier. Thank you for the tutorial.
I love working with cricut iron-on and making so many fun things for my family and friends! An easy press would make it so much easier!
Thank you for the tutorial on the Easy Press 2. I have one but haven’t used it yet — this will definitely help. That pink rose color though…. I’m in LOVE!
Amanda Bishop says
I definitely have to get one of these, I have so much trouble getting my iron on to stay
Molly Yock says
Thanks for all your help!!
Beth Watson says
You always make it look so easy, Cori! Thanks for the step by step tutorial!
Lisa Stapert says
Love all of the tutorials!!!!
Shannon Blanchette says
Love, love, LOVE this idea! I always have a hard time lining up my pieces, and you make it look easy. They seem to shift or shrink when I do it. Maybe it’s just my heat temp is too high?
I’ve never done any iron-ons with more than 1 color. This tutorial makes it look super easy, and I might now have the confidence to break out of that and try something a little more difficult now! Thanks!!
This tutorial is very easy to follow!!! Thank you
Nicole Dehner says
This definitely looks easier to use than an iron.
So easy to follow your tutorials! I’m new to Cricut and you have helped me so much already. Keep the basics coming!
I am new to Cricut this year and am excited to try the iron-on vinyl. This is such a great tutorial!
Great information. Easy to follow.
Rebecca Lamb says
I love your blog. I found it randomly, but have stayed for the great ideas and freebies. I know have a Cricut thanks to your clever projects (and your promotion of the sale). Thanks so much.
Such a cute shirt! Iron-on vinyl scares me a little haha!
Alanna Frederick says
I would LOVE to add one to my Cricut arsenal!
Myrna Rinesmith says

I have always wanted to try the easy press. It looks so handy!
Myrna Rinesmith says
Thank You for all you do for everyone. I am slowly learning.
Michelle Kimmell says
My very first iron project: I made some coozies for my nephews wedding and used a regular iron…wish I had an easy press! Most of them turned out OK but there were a few I had to throw out. I’m a teacher, so I have a group of elementary students who are designing shirts and an easy press would be better than worrying about them getting burned on a regular iron. Thanks for your tutorial!!!
Sandra Pride says
There’s always more projects to get done! That’s why we have jumbled craft rooms or crap room as my son-in-law calls it!
Charlotte E says
Your tutorials are always so easy to understand. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us!
Teresa B says
I am changing all of my Cricut to the Rose color. I have a Rose Maker, Rose Bright Pad, Rose Cutting Mat, Rose Ruler….but I don’t have a ROSE EASY PRESS!!!! I’d love to win and add to my Cricut Rose collection! Thanks for all of the great tutorials and ideas that you share. They have helped me a lot.

This is awesome. I love the email updates!
Looking forward to seeing all my new Cricut can do…thanks for the great tutorials!
I am a Cricut newbie. Thanks for the tips
Great tutorial! I love the tip to iron from the backside of the project as well. The EasyPress makes it look super simple. My iron on projects never seem to stick that well, partly because of my cheap old iron but I think the ironing from the reverse side is a great extra step to ensure adhesion.
Pam Baker says
Love your work!! Easy and simple to follow. Can you do a vinly for a diaper bag? Like babies name or mammas name? I have a little girl :)
Great info! I’d love to win an Easy Press!
What a great Mother’s Day gift.
Would love to win the Cricut easy press.

I Love the pink colors of all your Cricut items. Sure would love to win the easy press. My almost first experience with the Cricut Maker was making 14 t-shirts and having to use my old iron to iron them. It was for my daughters Boy Scout Troop in the Valentines day parade, yah, they received first place in their division.
Mary E says

Great tutorial!!!! I cant wait until the day I get one of these and quit using an iron! What a pain it is! Maybe Mothers day, I keep dropping hints lol.
linda johnson says
Oh boy! Just saw about the giveaway!! Please enter me in that for sure!!
Love how this post promotes being an entrepreneur while your children are with you. Initially it is a bit more stressful but soon they get into a routine with you. I enjoy having them with me while I work and be able to be available to them throughout the day.
Carmel Jalinski says
I hope to get an easy press soon
Thanks for the tips in this post. I didn’t know about not letting the heat touch the vinyl the 2nd time. I surely don’t want to get bubbles!

What a cute design! I’m definitely going to have to make one for my friend who’s expecting her 4th.
My wife recently got a cricut and is learning to make so many neat things for the kids. She’d love this design.

I would love to win an Easy Press! I have made a few shirts with my household iron and the iron-on vinyl just doesn’t seem to adhere as well as I would like it to.

Looks so much easier than an iron
Renee B. says
Thank you for sharing. I have been interested in getting a Cricut and this is very helpful.
Love the split design – it could be used on so many shapes!
An easy press would make crafting so much easier! Haven’t made the splurge quite yet. I’m gonna hope that I win one so I can save that money for other crafting supplies!

Been wanting some sort of press. My iron works, but I bet this is so much easier since you can press the entire design at once.
This is awesome! I see so many possible applications for my sewing projects especially. Thanks for the thorough tutorial!
Love this shirt!

I’m currently still using an iron. Boo! I love that you can get an even distribution and exact temperature using the press. Time and project saver I’m sure!

Thanks for all the great information. This is my first time making a shirt so I needed all the info I could find. You seem to cover it all. Thanks!!
Do you have a way to soften stiff vinyl on shirts?
The stiffness often depends on the type of vinyl you choose. You may have better results with a lighter material such as Siser EasyColor DTV instead :)
