Make a matching set of shirts for your favorite video game playing father and son using your Cricut! You can make these for any age duo.
My husband is a gamer through and through. He actually prefers PCs over consoles (computers over Nintendos for those of you who don’t know the lingo) but I liked the look of controllers better than a mouse and keyboard! I have set this all up for you to just click a link and get making!
The sizing I have for this file is for a Large t shirt and a 2t t shirt. Design space makes it super easy to make these files smaller or larger though so if you need to make some alterations then don’t forget to do that!
What I Used to make my Father and Son Shirts
- Foil Iron on in Green
- Iron on light in Charcoal
- Iron on light in White
- Cricut Explore Air 2
- Two T Shirts
- Cricut EasyPress
Make sure your t shirts are prewashed! If they’re brand new throw them in the laundry.
Weed your pieces and grab your prewashed t shirt!
Now you will start ironing on. Start with the white layer. Using your EasyPress makes this whole process so simple! I have found putting a little weight on the EasyPress helps a lot too.
Peel the layer from your first layer and then place your second layer. Here is the important part: put the previous plastic layer on top of any uncovered vinyl. You do not want the iron touching any uncovered vinyl or it will melt it.
Do your third layer in this same way and you are all done! I always suggest putting a press cloth on top of the finished vinyl and finishing it off that way so you know it’s on really well.
My husband loves matching our little guy so these father and son shirts are a family favorite around here!
