If you have a little one headed to their first day of school, then don’t forget their special shirt! Make a DIY back to school shirt with these back-to-school SVG files.
The first day of kindergarten is special, so it definitely calls for a special First Day of School shirt! You’ll find the perfect design with these first day of school SVG files. Most of these files come with grades PreK-5th grade and all can easily be customized for any grade.
How to Make a Back-to-School Shirt with Your Cricut
To make a first day of school shirt you will need:
- Solid colored shirts – I recommend these ruffle sleeve shirts or these Raglan Tees.
- Iron on Vinyl – I love this Siser Easy Weed Vinyl – it goes on great and lasts! If you are just getting started with building up your vinyl supply, I recommend this variety pack of heat transfer vinyl. If you prefer glitter iron on vinyl, this variety pack is a great choice.
- Cricut Maker or Explore Cutting Machine and your standard cutting mat.
- These Weeding Tools for removing the excess vinyl.
- Heat Press – You can also use an iron; however, I highly recommend this EasyPress to ensure that your designs will last and that you are using the proper heat settings for your materials – the included heat guide is super helpful for this so there is no guessing!
- Back to School SVG Files
To make a back-to-school shirt, create a new project in Cricut Design Space, then upload your SVG File and resize as needed.
If you are new to making shirts, check out this iron on vinyl tutorial for step-by-step directions.
Note: Always mirror your design and place the vinyl shiny side down when using iron on vinyl.
