A couple of y’all have asked me lately how I made the little t-shirt to go with Charlotte’s Pebbles Skirt (don’t forget to check out the free tutorial I posted for the skirt earlier this week!). This was actually my first time using my Cricut to cut fabric, and I was so excited with how easily the process went! There are quite a few how-to’s available on the web that detail a similar process, but I thought I’d share my own little method here for good measure.

Using your Cricut to cut fabric
I must stress that it is imperative to have the fabric affixed to the cutting mat as securely as possible to prevent it from moving around while cutting. I learned this the hard way, and that is why I put my handy dandy painter’s tape to good use! It also helps to use a brand-new mat to ensure the adhesive is as strong as possible.
Another helpful hint: I own the Sure Cuts A Lot software, which I have found to be terrific in designing projects like this one. I love being able to choose from hundreds of different font options, and the ability to lay everything out on the mat exactly as I wish it to appear on the t-shirt eliminates unnecessary work on my part. I would encourage any Cricut owner to check out this software! (And if this project doesn’t convince you to add the SCAL software to your wish list, I have a little something up my sleeve that I have no doubt will entice you to do so! Stay tuned.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
