Have you always wanted to customize your favourite hoodie/sweatshirt? In this post, I’ll show you an easy DIY to help you do just that, using your Cricut machine.
I have a pink ombre sweatshirt that I love, and I have been thinking about customizing it and adding a fun quote to it. If you know me, then you know I love coffee and crafting, so I found the perfect quote to add to it.
With a Cricut machine, you can easily customize your own hoodies, sweatshirts, t-shirts, dresses, baby onesies; you name it! So many choices.
For this project, I used my brand new Cricut Maker 3. The latest, most powerful smart cutting machine from Cricut yet. I am so impressed with how fast the Maker 3 cuts. It is so smooth and fast, you guys! Up to 2x faster than their other machines. If you are looking to get a new Cricut machine or upgrade, I highly recommend looking at the Cricut Maker 3 here. But you can also use your Explore Air machine or older Cricut Maker.
Here’s what you will need:

Next, add it to the canvas, adjust the size, and prepare to cut. Always use MIRROR ON when doing iron-on projects.
Now, load the material (shiny side down), and cut.
Use a Weeder tool to remove all the negative pieces of the iron-on.
Next, remove any lint from the blank, and ensure you turn on the Heat Press and select the time/temperature as described in the Cricut Heat Guide.
Apply the iron-on to the hoodie/sweatshirt using the EasyPress. Use the Cricut Heat Guide website to check the temperature, time, and specific steps required for your materials.
Place Iron-On Protective Sheet over iron-on.
Press with light pressure at 315F for 30 seconds.
Flip blank over and press for 15 seconds.
Slowly remove the liner when cool to the touch.
Wait 24 hours after application before watching the t-shirt. Then wash and tumble dry inside out. Never use bleach. ENJOY!
What do you think? I LOVE how it turned out! My new fave for sure.
If you end up doing this project, let me know. I would love to see your results!
