  • Import the jack-o-lantern image into Cricut design space and cut from vinyl. Remember to place the vinyl plastic side down and set your machine to iron-on. I used my Cricut Maker and it cut it perfectly.
  • Weed the image (remove the negative pieces so you just have the jack-0-lantern pieces.)
  • Press your shirt or front bodice piece of fabric to remove any moisture or wrinkles.
  • Position. your vinyl with the plastic side UP.
  • With the EasyPress up to temperature (just go by the directions on your vinyl to set the temp). Press the vinyl to the shirt with a little pressure. I do this on my homemade pressing board but anything that’s firm and heatproof (like a table with a thickly folded towel) will do.
  • Starting slowly at a corner peel the plastic off (stop and reheat if it seems like the vinyl has not fully adhered to your fabric/shirt).
  • If sewing finish making the shirt otherwise you’re good to go!
