All the good vibes over the weekend made me a little nostalgic about my very first project I ever made on my Cricut Explore, which was this super easy DIY Hashtag T Shirt! I posted it on the blog over four years ago, and boy was it in need of an update! The good news is, I can truly attest that I still have that shirt four years later and it has washed and worn so well! Before we dive into the updated tutorial on how to make your own easy DIY T Shirt, how about a little video tutorial to walk you through how it’s done?!

You guys. If you have never used a Cricut Machine before you will die  over how freaking easy they are to use! I remember I was so nervous to break out my machine for the first time, and once I did I couldn’t stop! I started with a #bold shirt for my little Nora bean and I loved it so much that I had my BFF’s come over for a girl’s night to make some too! That’s when I created this #tired one for myself!

Okay are you ready to make your own DIY #hashtag shirt?! Let’s do this!

How to Make your own DIY Hashtg T Shirt:

1.Gather your supplies:

Cricut machine
Gold Iron On  or whatever your favorite color is
Scissors

2. To design your hashtag t-shirt, all you do is go to the Cricut design space and click “create new project” then “add text.” Type your #hashtag and then pick a font and sizing. For Nora’s baby shirt I kept the width at 5.5 inches, and for my adult DIY T shirt I set the width to 8.5 inches and the height to between 2-3 inches.

3. After you have the sizing and font set how you like them click the “Make It” button. Don’t forget to select the “mirror” option so that your design will turn out right on your t-shirt! The screen should look like this after you mirror your image.

4. Cut your design! Click on the green continue button and follow the prompts for loading your iron on vinyl into your machine. Make sure you place your vinyl on the mat SHINY SIDE DOWN. Follow the prompts to load your mat onto the machine and then push the “go” button and the Cricut will cut your image! I cannot stress enough how easy this was. I was seriously so afraid of it, and the machine basically does all the work for you!

5. After your word is cut, weed out the excess Iron-On, and stick it onto your t-shirt where you want it.

6. Heat for thirty to sixty seconds with iron on cotton setting (make sure your steam setting is turned off on your iron) and place a thin towel over the plastic before heating with your iron.

7. Lastly, flip your shirt over and heat from the back for 30 additional seconds. So simple, yet so fun!

Finished project of a DIY hashtag t shirt! I gotta tell you, I love my #tired tee. For some reason it just totally makes me smile! Probably because it’s so true to my life stage right now. It’s a perfect shirt for lazing around at home, or for a morning when you woke up late with your favorite jeans and some cute gold flats. I wore this to the grocery store toting around my four babies and I can’t tell you the smiles I got from people, haha!

    What font did you use for the #babymama shirt?

    This is a great idea! Is it washable? Will it crack overtime?

      I’ve washed mine multiple times and still no issues or cracking! I do wash it inside out and hang dry it just to be safe!
