Remember how I said I am shameless when it comes to all things St. Patrick’s Day? Well, you can pretty much guarantee that my kids will be decked-out in custom shirts for this holiday more so than all others. .

Is making five shirts each kid going a bit overboard for St. Patrick’s Day?

Nah.

What’s the fun in having kids if you can’t dress them up from time to time?

So here’s the first St. Patrick’s Day shirt tutorial of the season – a sassy little shirt for my wee lass.

Step 1: Gather your supplies

Step 2: Upload the image to Cricut Design Space 

I used the same shamrock file for the Irish-themed Big Brother & Little Sister shirts I made recently. If you do not already have these downloaded from that project, follow these directions:

  • First, download the image to your device
  • Next, open Cricut Design Space and in a New Project, click on the Upload button on the left sidebar.
  • Click on the Upload Image button and then the Browse button to navigate to where you’ve saved your image.
  • Then, double click on the file
  • Add an image name and tags and click Save.
  • Now your image will be saved to Recently Uploaded Images under the Upload tab.
  • Finally, click on your image and hit the “Insert Images” button, which will take you back to your canvas for further manipulation.

Step 3: Upload additional font in Cricut Design Space

I am a big fan of using dafont.com fonts for my personal projects. They have so many to chose from and – once downloaded – can be uploaded for free to Cricut Design Space. For this specific project, I used the Signature font by Graphix Line Studio. Check them out! They’ve got some really nice options (for personal use only).*

Anyway, back to the task at hand. I’ve previously discussed how to upload fonts to Cricut Design Space in posts like this They See Me Rollin’ T-shirt. But here is a brief recap of how to do it below:

Download directions:

  • Go to Dafont.com and search for “Signature” and click on the gray “download” button to the right of the font.
  • Once the zip file has completed its download to your computer, open the file and double-click on the TrueType font file to open it.
  • Then hit the “install” button at the top of the document.
  • Once the install is complete, open Cricut Design Space and select your new font from the font drop-down menu. (If you are already working in Design Space, you’ll want to refresh it or log out and back in so you can see the new font selection).

*Always double-check the licensing for the fonts you download. I am using this font for personal use and will not be selling these shirts. However, there are plenty of completely free fonts on dafont.com.

Step 4: Design away!

I used a classic t-shirt template and changed the color of the shirt to gray.

Then, I typed out each word individually and played around with sizing and rotation.

Layout in Cricut Design Space

After I had everything the way I liked it, I “welded” each word together so the script connected between letters.

Next, I attached the words together so it would keep the layout intact while the Cricut cut each out.

I chose to use gold foil for all the words but “sass” because I wanted it to stand out with green foil. For a little added flare, all the shamrocks are green glitter htv.

Step 5: Cut, weed and heat press your design as you would any other htv project.

I love the way the shirt sparkles and shines for my wee little one. I’d be so interested to see how yours turned out if you chose to make this with me!
