What have you been doing during quarantine? I have been doing some extra crafting! One thing I made recently was this Covid custom shirts for our neighbor.

One thing that I really love about having a Cricut machine is that I can make custom designed shirts for friends and family. For example, I was able to take a design from LoveSVG and download it to cut on my Cricut machine.
If you want to check out all of the Covid related designs on LoveSVG just click HERE.
After that, you can follow the directions in THIS VIDEO to learn how to bring that svg design into Cricut Design Space and cut it with your Cricut.
I cut this with Siser EasyWeed vinyl in the new spring color Wisteria. First I measured the front of the shirt to determine the amount of space that the design should be. I wanted it large, but not so big that it went into the armpits. Then I resized the image to be that same size and cut it on my iron on setting. Make sure to mirror or flip your images before cutting with iron on material, since you are cutting it from the back side of the vinyl.

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.

I have also ordered from Expression Vinyl. Sorry, no code for that one, but if they are having a sale or are the only place that you can find that has the item you want, at least you know they are a trusted retailer. 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.
