How Do You Dye a Shirt With Cricut?

Using a Cricut machine to dye a shirt is an easy and inexpensive way to make your own customized clothing. The process is simple and requires minimal materials.

You can dye any type of fabric, from cotton to polyester, as long as it is 100% natural fiber.

To begin, you will need a Cricut machine, some heat transfer vinyl (HTV), an inkjet printer, and a heat press or iron. You will also need fabric dye of your choice and the shirt you plan to dye. Make sure the shirt is pre-washed before starting.

The first step is to design your image in the Cricut Design Space software. Once you have designed your image, cut it out of the HTV with the Cricut machine. Once it’s cut, weed out any excess vinyl that you don’t want on your shirt.

Next, print out your image onto regular paper from an inkjet printer. Place the printed image onto the shirt where you would like it to be dyed and place the HTV cutout over top of it. Use a heat press or iron to adhere the HTV onto the fabric.

Finally, mix up your fabric dye according to package directions and submerge your shirt into the mixture for 15-20 minutes. Once done, rinse out your shirt in cold water until all of the excess dye has been washed away. Then place it in cold water with a small amount of detergent and let it soak for an additional 10-15 minutes before rinsing again with cold water until all traces of detergent are gone.

Afterwards, hang dry or tumble dry on low heat until completely dry before wearing!

In conclusion, dying a shirt with a Cricut machine is easy and cost effective way to customize any type of clothing item! With minimal materials needed and simple steps involved you can create one-of-a-kind garments for yourself or others!
