Easily create this shirt using Cricut’s HTV Vinyl
In this post, I’ll show you just how fast and easy it is to create this Gamer T-Shirt for yourself or a gift using Cricut’s HTV Vinyl. This one is going to my great-nephew who has a little sister who needed some new baby headbands. If you missed my story last week, you can view it here.
I have a helpful YouTube video below showing the layering of the HTV and assembly process.
Lately, I’ve been working with all kinds of Cricut’s most recent new products and having a blast. So when I did a simple iron-on project, well it brought back fond memories of my many past projects.
Can you use Cricut’s Infusible Ink instead of HTV Vinyl?
Yes, you sure can, just make sure to use one of their Cricut Blank shirts made specifically for Infusible Ink Projects such as the ones here.
Supplies used for this project
- Black T-Shirt from Michaels
- Cricut Everyday Iron-on in gold/silver
- Cricut Easy Press 1 or 2
- Cricut Easy Press Mat
When I modified the Cricut DS file I created easy sliced layers to make it easier for you if using Infusible Ink. You can find this file in my resource library here.
Original DS file
I think it’s important to show what the file looked like before I modified it. I need to remind myself to start filming when I modify files so you can see just how easy of a process it is. Note to self! 🤦♀️ It’s like when I know I’m going to modify something I get into this zone LOL and forget to record!
Basically I used the slice feature and the contour feature. I added the letters instead of the color circles and added a wifi symbol. Walla! I kept the color circles also in the file in case that is the look you prefer. My design reflects the more updated version of X-Box’s controllers.
