DIY “One Lucky Mama” Iron-On Shirt

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by making yourself a shirt to share how lucky you are to be a mama! 

DIY "One Lucky Mama" Iron-On Shirt

The other week I whipped up a shirt for myself and for the kids for our local St. Patrick’s Day parade. My husband always thinks I’m crazy, but I love making special custom shirts and even better we get compliments! I’m going to embrace being able to make the kids shirts until they won’t let me any  more. Today, I’m sharing how I made this super simple DIY “One Lucky Mama” Iron-On Shirt in minutes using my Cricut Maker!


DIY "One Lucky Mama" Iron-On Shirt

First, open up the “One Lucky Mama” file found on Cricut Design Space™. Size the file to the size you need for your shirt.

Remember to MIRROR your image! Select “Iron-On Glitter Vinyl” and begin to cut.

DIY One Lucky Mama Iron-On Weeded

Weed out the negative Iron-On vinyl using Cricut BrightPad and Cricut Tools for weeding. Then apply the Iron-On vinyl to your shirt using your Cricut EasyPress or iron or heat press! Whatever you have on hand. Just follow the directions via the Iron-On vinyl packaging and what heat source your planning to use. For the EasyPress it’s about 30 seconds. With the heat press it’s about 10-15 seconds and an iron will take at least a minute if not longer. I always use a thin muslin fabric to when I’m adhering the Iron-On Vinyl to the shirt!

Here is another close up of the shirt. A friend gave me this shirt last year while I was pregnant and after having Reagan I wore it a lot over the past year. So it’s definitely a nicely warn shirt. I added the glitter Iron-On vinyl to revive it. I have no idea where she ordered the shirts–sorry!
