Digital Design Tutorial: Cricut Infusible Ink or Fabric Markers

It's Day 2 of our digital design tutorials.  Today's tutorial on how to use the digital designs is probably the easiest one yet.  If you thought you had to have a cutting machine, think again!  Each day a different method is being shared so that by the end of the week, there will be a tutorial for everyone!  The digital designs come in a variety of formats, .jpg, .png, .svg and .dxf so that whatever method you use, one of the formats will work for you!

This tutorial is by Audrey of Skirt Fixation.  She shows how to use Cricut Infusible Ink markers or just plain fabric markers to make fun pajama shirts.


Begin by printing out your digital design on cardstock.  I used the .jpg version of the I'm Out and Sleep Mode graphic designs for this tutorial.  Then use a scissors, tiny rotary cutter, or exacto knife to cut out the design.


Sew up your shirt pattern to the point where the side seams are NOT sewn.  I'm using the Easy Street Tee for this tutorial.  It's easiest to complete the following steps with the shirt front flat instead of having to embed a protective layer inside the shirt to keep the markers from bleeding through to the back.  Position your design on the shirt.


Trace, color and have fun with the infusible ink markers, getting the design onto the shirt!  I used Cricut Infusible Ink markers for this tutorial, but you could use fabric markers, or even Sharpies!


On the Sleep Mode one, I just colored in the letters.  On this I'm Out design, I chose to do a more hand drawn coloring/scribble!


Next I used the Cricut Easy Press to set the Infusible Ink into the fabric.  You can also use an iron.


If you do use an Easy Press, Cricut has detailed instructions to help you set the Infusible Ink markers properly.


And that's it!  Easy peasy, right?  Head over to Skirt Fixation for some adorable modeled shots of these pajama shirts.
