Let’s make a fun Back To School Teacher T-shirt with Cricut Infusible Ink! My cousin is a teacher, and I made this shirt for her first week back this fall. I think she’ll love it. It says “Teacher Mode On!” ;)
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
And what’s best is that I used the new Cricut Infusible Ink, which are heat transfers that are permanently infused into your base material, so they last as long as the project itself. No flaking, no peeling, no cracking, and no wrinkling – ever! Yay!
Infusible Ink is also feather light! It has no seams, no edges, no weight, and no bulk so she can be comfortable while she’s trying to rangle 26 kids into their seats after recess!
Wondering What Infusible Ink Is?
If this is your first introduction to Cricut Infusible Ink, I made a quick video for you to answer a few of the most common questions like:
- How is Infusible Ink different from iron-on?
- What machines can I use with Infusible Ink?
- What types of materials can I use?
Shop Supplies To Make An Infusible Ink T-shirt
For this Back To School Teacher T-shirt, you’ll need a few supplies and right now Infusible Ink is only available at Michaels!
- Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore Air 2
- Standard Mat
- EasyPress 2 (size to do your design in one pass)
- Mat for EasyPress 2
- Infusible Ink (I used rainbow) – only at Michaels
- Butcher paper (included in box)
- Cricut Blank, V-neck Tshirt – only at Michaels
- Lint Roller (so important!)
- Scissors or Straight Edge
- Clear Acrylic Ruler
- My Design Space File
IMPORTANT – Make sure you use a lint roller on your t-shirt before applying your ink transfer sheet. The smallest amount of lint can ruin your design! If there is lint that falls away after you’ve pressed on the design, it will leave a white spot where the ink applied to the lint and not the shirt. EEK!
Easy Directions + VIDEO
It’s pretty simple and I made a quick video to show you just how easy it is. Here are just a few things to remember:
- Mirror image all cuts.
- Cut image with ink side up on green standard mat.
- Use the Cricut Heat Guide to make sure you’re using the right heat and time for your Cricut EasyPress.
- Never move the EasyPress once placed on the Infusible Ink sheet. It can cause ghosting.
- Allow the design to cool completely before removing sheet.
