With Fourth of July just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to create a fun t-shirt for my kiddo’s to wear to celebrate the holiday. By now you know I love making t-shirts. I’ve made themed tee’s for Valentine’s Day, Halloween, Geek Chic, and Hunger Games. I decided to take my popular 4th of July Printables and switch them up a bit to create these fun Easy Fourth of July Shirts. I’m also teaming up with some fun blog friends for a Red, White, and Blue Vinyl Hop so be sure to check out all the creative ways they used vinyl to celebrate the 4th below.
When I first thought about making this shirt I wanted a cute design that I could use to create a quick and easy to make shirt. Like I mentioned I used my popular printable from last year, the printable was based off this 4th of July Sign that I created with the help of my favorite Expressions Vinyl. Since this shirt was going to be geared towards my kids I wanted to slightly switch up the design up a tiny bit, so I switched out a few words.
Note: This design and image is not to be used for resale purposes, it is only for personal use. The image is copyrighted and owned by The Crafted Sparrow.
Placing the Heat Transfer Vinyl on the cutting mat shiny side down I cut my image, being sure to check the “mirror image” box to flip it for ironing.
Once the image was cut I just used my weeding tool to weed the vinyl. I seriously love Expressions Vinyl, all their product is amazing and I never have issues with it. The Heat Transfer Vinyl is one of my faves, so easy to weed and it holds so well.
Pre-heat your shirt surface for 2-3 seconds prior to laying down your vinyl. Once the vinyl is in place cover with a thin towel or cloth, then press iron firmly over the surface of the vinyl in 10-15 increments on each section. I typically go over my vinyl several times. Let it cool, and then just peel one corner of the clear protector up to see if the vinyl has adhered properly. If not, then go over it again for a few more seconds.
Once the whole design is cool remove the clear protective paper. That’s it.
