Cricut Infusible Ink Layered T-Shirt Tutorial

Learn how easy it is to make a personalized Cricut Infusible Ink T-shirt using multiple colors of transfer sheets!

Cricut’s Infusible Ink transfer sheets are a fun and easy way to make professional-looking T-shirts that won’t peel, crack, or flake. You can get really vibrant colors that are permanently infused into the material. AND you can create designs with multiple colors, which is what I want to show you how to do today! Let’s make a fun Cricut Infusible Ink layered T-shirt using Cricut Infusible Ink transfer sheets that we combine together for a personalized look!

Watch the full step-by-step process in my Cricut Infusible Ink tutorial video here:

For this project, you’ll want a Cricut Explore or Maker (either one works fine) and an EasyPress (either an original EasyPress or an EasyPress 2 — and it needs to be big enough to cover your design in one pass). You can also use a heat press, but you can’t use a household iron — it won’t get consistently hot enough across its surface to properly infuse the ink, and it’s not typically big enough for a T-shirt design anyway.

Beyond the machines, you need the Cricut Infusible Ink transfer sheets in the colors or patterns you want to use (I’m using red and blue).

And, you need a DESIGN! I made a flip flip design because I think they are perfect for this two-color T-shirt project. Plus, we can personalize them if we want! So let me show you where to get this design free, how to add your own name to the design, and get it cut out and onto your T-shirt!

You’ll find many designs for iron-on T-shirts right in Cricut Design Space. Click on Images and browse the Image library for ideas. If you’re a beginner, I recommend you stick with simple, one-color designs that do not have lots of small detail.
