My mom taught me a very simple rule when I was a teenager. “Crystal,” she said. “Never talk about politics or religion at a dinner party. Nothing is sure to kill the mood of a party faster.” Politics can definitely be a polarizing topic. I am sure that I have readers both on the left side and the right who visit this site, and the last thing I want to do is alienate anyone or start a big debate. I think that something that we can all agree on is that there is so much bad stuff going on around the world that is absolutely heartbreaking. One thing that gives me great hope is looking into the eyes of my daughter, my son, their friends and other inspiring youth and knowing that one day they are going to accomplish extraordinary things– They are our future world leaders. 

A few of my blogger friends, Angie from The Country Chic Cottage, Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts, Jen from 100 Directions, and Jessica from Mad in Crafts recently told me about a blog hop that they were planning. “It’s a whole week of iron-on crafts,” they said. You know how much I love my Cricut and in particular making shirts with my Cricut so I jumped right on board to take part.

A “few” of our Iron-On Shirt Projects. You can find them all here. 

I sat down at my desk and started brainstorming ideas. A few months back I created my DIY Kindness Warrior sweatshirt and I knew that I wanted something with the same kind of feeling. A shirt that had an impact, gave hope and made people feel good. 

Spread kindness around the world! Let's create an army of kindness with this easy to make DIY Kindness Warrior Shirt. Includes step by step instructions on how to make this project using a Cricut, along with a free SVG cut file compatible with Cricut or Silhouette. The perfect hoodie for kids or adults to spread love instead of hate, discourage bullying and make the world a better place. #DIY #Cricut #Silhouette #SVG

I had about 10 different ideas written down on my brainstorming page when the idea for the DIY Future World Leader shirt hit me. I knew immediately that it was what I wanted to make. There is something about seeing my daughter wearing this shirt, and imagining a future with more females in leadership roles that makes me super excited.

Materials:

Future World Leader Design File

-Shirt 

-Measuring tape (I used the one from the Cricut Sewing Kit)

–Cricut Iron-On in your favorite colors and types (I usedCricut Glitter Iron-On in Black Gold)

Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore (prefer shopping on Amazon? Find the Cricut Maker here and the Cricut Explore here)

Cricut Iron-On Protective Sheet (Technically optional but I find this invaluable when using Iron-On especially when layering vinyl)

-Iron or  Cricut EasyPress (prefer shopping on Amazon? Find the Cricut Easy Press here)

Regular Grip Cutting Mat

Weeding tools

Optional: Cricut Bright Pad for weedingCricut Brayer Tool (this is a tool that I LOVE for making shirts. I rub the brayer over my design after the first press to really make sure that the design is adhering to the fabric.)

Step 1: Log into Cricut Design Space and then open my Future World Leader Design File. Measure your shirt to decide how large you want the design to be.  Adjust the size of the design and then click “Make It”.

Step 3: Use your weeding tools to weed away the excess iron-on material around your design.

Step 4: Apply your design to your shirt using an iron or Easy Press. Preheat the shirt, lay your design down, press according to the instructions for the iron-on you are using from both the front and the back of the shirt. I love using the Cricut Iron On Protective Sheet and Cricut Brayer Tool when applying iron-on to clothing. The protective sheet is especially valuable when layering iron-on, however even with a solid design I find that the protective sheet helps distribute the heat more evenly than a towel. The Cricut Brayer Tool is great for really pushing your design into the fibers of the clothing. The trio of the Cricut EasyPress,  Cricut Iron On Protective Sheet and Cricut Brayer Tool have made the process of creating shirts so much easier for me than when I was using an iron and a towel.

Peel away the clear plastic protective sheet that’s attached to your iron-on and voila! You have a gorgeous shirt that will hopefully inspire future world leaders!
