In our world of social media and posting pictures a lot of people have gotten creative with announcing life changing events. A custom baby announcement shirt has become a great way to announce that someone is pregnant. This tutorial will show you how to use your Cricut to make a baby announcement shirt using iron on vinyl.

Since my design was already a SVG file, I uploaded that to Cricut Design Space. There was no need to clean it up or remove the background, like you would have to do with images you find online. When SVG files are created correctly, it works just like the images you find in Cricut Design Space.
Once I had the design in Cricut Design Space, all I had to do was pick the colors I wanted from my Siser EasyWeed vinyl.
Custom announcement shirts also help the older sibling to feel important. Then they get to wear the shirt and be center stage. It is so important to make then feel included in this event.

I prefer to use Siser brand vinyl for my iron on projects. I feel that is the best quality brand of iron on vinyl out there, and it weeds the easiest. For permanent vinyl I like StarCraft vinyl.
Over the years I have gotten Siser vinyl from a variety of places, including My Craft Source. When you shop at My Craft Source be sure to use code ShawnMosch to get 5% off your order!
Heat Transfer Warehouse is another great source for your vinyl needs. I also have a coupon code you an use there! Use code SHAWN5 to get 5% off your order when shopping at Heat Transfer Warehouse.
I have also ordered from Expression Vinyl. Sorry, no code for that one. All of these stores carry Siser brand vinyl and I love that I can order large rolls or small sheets. This can give you a larger variety of choices and allow to to save money on larger orders. To make sure you are getting the best price for your vinyl, make sure to check out my Vinyl Buyers Guide.
