Feels Like Monday #DIYIronOn

Doesn't it though?! It feels like Monday after a 3-day weekend or simply when you're feeling bleh. I created this t-shirt using Best Creation Inc. glitter iron-on vinyl.  It was super easy to make, let's get started.

In Adobe Illustrator®, I used the Peach Milk font, (free for personal use) to create the "Feels Like Monday."
I changed the offset path to make the letters easier to cut. I also changed the height. You can also create the saying within Design Space, I just prefer to work in Adobe Illustrator®.
I then imported the SVG file to Cricut's Design Studio and prepared the black glitter iron-on to cut.

I find it easier to work with their app and I can quickly reference the image to help with weeding. I start on the outside and cut the excess as I work my way through the design.

I preheat the iron to the highest setting and aligned the image to the t-shirt. Working on hard surface works best when using a household iron. Cover the image with fabric, I use a pillow case, it's thick enough to protect the plastic and thin enough to allow the heat of the iron. Then press firmly for 30 seconds. Carefully pull back the plastic. If needed, iron the back side of the t-shirt, but lower the iron setting to cotton or cover your shirt with a piece of fabric, in my case a pillow case, to avoid scorching.

Fun and so easy to create! Even if it does feel like a Monday. 

I hope you enjoyed my project. I hope the rest of the week doesn't feel like Monday.
Please visit again Thursday for a Halloween iron-on vinyl project.
