What is your favorite thing to do? Sometimes I wish that I could design t-shirts all day long. I get so much pleasure out of the design process and then seeing my work come to life. I think back to my Etsy days when I made t-shirts. I remember the countless hours of attaching fusible webbing to fabric, tracing designs by hand, cutting them out, ironing them to the tshirts and then painstakingly stitching the designs on. I loved the work… but I’m not going to lie, it was stressful at times. I often think about how much easier my life would have been in those days if I had a Cricut to do all of the “hard work” for me. 

Earlier this month I was in Salt Lake City for SNAP Conference and I got to spend an entire afternoon at the Cricut head office, hanging out at a big boardroom table, designing t-shirts. Having that dedicated time to sit there, designing, not having anything else I had to worry about… it was incredible! Not once did a “little person” ask me for a snack or what they should do because they were “bored”. I just got to sit there and play!

This DIY Wild at Heart tank top was my favorite thing that I designed that day. Bonus! Each element is available through Cricut Access so I’m able to share the file with you! I made three different versions in Cricut playing with gold and black. I hope you like them! Read on for instructions on how to make this tank top!

Materials:

1. Open Cricut Design Space, log into Cricut Access and access my Wild At Heart file

2. Pick which heart/arrow/word color combo you want to use and size it to fit on your shirt. (If not cutting the other hearts click the eye next to each design element to hide them.)

3. Click Go, click the Mirror Image Box, and then cut using your favorite Iron On Light or Iron On Glitter . We used Glitter Black Gold for the arrows and letters and Iron on Lite Gold for the heart. 

5. Iron on shirt following instructions on the Iron On packaging.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
