St. Patrick’s Day– the day filled with all the shades of green, rainbows, leprechauns, mischief, corned beef and green beer! It’s a holiday that I love to celebrate now, but that I HATED during my elementary school day. Green was not my favorite color and I despised being forced to wear it under the threat of being pinched. Now green is one of my favorite colors, but that definitely wasn’t always the case. 

My daughter, Bean, may be following in her mom’s footsteps. She loves wearing pinks, purples and aquas. I remember her kindergarten year trying to wrestle her into a Rough Rider’s shirt (the only piece of clothing that she had that was green) and saying to her “Please just wear it! I don’t want anyone to pinch you at school!”  

I thought she looked adorable, but my girly girl scowled, pouted and complained that she looked like a boy during our entire walk to school!

I’ve since learned to think ahead and pre-plan her fashion choices when St. Patrick’s day is coming up. You know this mama loves a good DIY so I decided to create a DIY Shamrock Shirt that’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day! 

Do you all remember the heart shirt that I made for Valentine’s Day? The one where you could make two shirts with one cut file using both negative space and the positive space of the design? Here’s a reminder of what that looked like:

I thought it turned out adorable and I love conserving my supplies as much as possible so I decided to repeat the idea with today’s project, only this time using a shamrock shape! I put the big shamrock inside of a circle because I thought when you cut it out of the gold holographic iron on it looked like a big shiny coin… and you know how leprechaun’s love their gold!

Speaking of the gold holographic iron on… drool! I hadn’t used this color in a project before and you guys– it’s AMAZING! The color shift when the light hits the vinyl is so pretty! It shifts into all sorts of rainbow colors which makes it perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day shirt!

Step 1: Measure your shirt to determine how big you want your design to be. Open my Shamrock Shirt Cut File, click Customize and size it to fit your shirt. Cut the file using your Cricut.

Step 2: Carefully weed your iron on. Remove the iron on between the outside edge of your iron on and the circle first. Then carefully weed away the circle, making sure not to rip it, leaving the small four leaf clovers on the protective sheet.

Step 3: Lay the project with the small shamrocks on your first shirt. Set your iron or Easy Press to the appropriate settings for the iron on material you are using. Position your design onto the shirt, lay a protective sheet on top and press first from the front of the shirt and then from the back of the shirt. I use my Brayer Tool between each press to push the design down onto the shirt and make sure it really adheres to the fibers of the shirt. Allow the shirt to cool before removing the clear plastic sheet.

Step 4: Repeat this process with your second shirt and the design with the circle with the shamrocks cut out of it. If using the Cricut Iron On Protective Sheet you can press your design with just that sheet between your iron and the design. If you are doing this project without the Cricut Iron On Protective Sheet, use the clear protective sheet from your first design as a barrier for your second design.

    These are so much fun! I love that you can use the negative to create a second shirt. I hate waste so this is perfect for preventing that. Thanks for sharing your awesome DIY with us at Merry Monday this week!
