I’m a hardcore fan of Baymax. He’s such a loving character that I thought he would be perfect for a Valentine’s Day shirt. It’s always fun to celebrate a holiday with a great shirt. I used my Circut to make a design using his well known “Balalalala” line. So, here is a quick and easy DIY to make your own.
I layered black and white iron on heat transfer vinyl to create this.
I started with the white layer, so that meant I hid all the black pieces by clicking the eye next to each black piece.
This leaves just the the white parts. Highlight all pieces and attach them to make sure they are all on the mat in the right position.
Click “Make it” to bring it to your mat. Since this is an iron-on make sure you click “Mirror” to flip it backwards. It should look just like this.
Go back to the design, and expose the black and hide all the white using the eye button. Make sure you highlight the entire thing and attach them.
Click “Make it” and make sure you click “Mirror” again like the white.
Here’s how to assemble Iron-on layers on your shirt:
Once you have it cut, assembling isn’t as easy as just layering one on top of the other. When it comes to the text the black is on top of the white. When it comes to the Baymax, the white is on top of the black. Way to make it complicated, right?
I started with the white for the text since it is the bottom layer. I cut out the Baymax circle because it is actually a top layer but made sure not to cut all the way through the plastic so I could keep the right spacing.
After you iron on the white, add your black text on top.
Now, add your black bottom layer of your Baymax. If you have the Cricut Iron-on Protective Mat, use it! It protects all the iron-on that you had previously ironed that isn’t protected by plastic.
Add that cute little Baymax face and your are done with your Valentine’s Day shirt for you or your kids.
