Do you have a friend who you love to craft with? I have a few, but the one who I probably spend the most time DIYing with is Auntie T. She lives a few minutes away from me and the two of us often have impromptu crafting and baking sessions where we lose track of time and either stay up way too late or neglect to realize that dinner time has come and gone. My family and I went on an epic 10 day camping trip recently and when we returned Auntie T and I were anxious to get our craft on. 

I don’t think that I’ve ever been a trend starter, but I’m usually an “early trend adopter”,  meaning that I’m pretty good at spotting what’s going to be a trend pretty early on and jumping on board with it. Auntie T has a good eye at spotting trends too. Earlier this week she showed me a shirt that her daughter was wearing that had a little character coming out of the pocket. The two of us think that is going to be the new “critter hoodie” trend that our kids were crazy about for the past 2 years, so we decided to create our own DIY pocket animal shirts.

I love making shirts with my Cricut, but this shirt you can make without any special machine. Cricut has come out with a new line of iron-on designs that are too cool for words. All you need is a fabric surface to attach them to and an Iron or EasyPress to attach them! We made our shirts with these adorable Sloth iron ons.

Directions: 

Step 1: Cut out the iron on design and figure out the positioning on the shirt. For the sloth in the hammock we ended up cutting away the arm that is hanging below the hammock and the strings of the hammock.

Step 2: If using an iron set your iron to Cotton/Linen and make sure the steam setting is turned off. If using an EasyPress set the machine to 340F. (Confirm heat settings in the instructions that come with your iron on design.) Preheat your shirt for 15 seconds. Place the design onto the preheated material and heat for 50 seconds using medium pressure. Flip shirt over and heat backside of the design for 15 seconds. Cricut suggests letting the design cool before removing the clear plastic lining but I prefer doing a warm peel.
