Everyone knows that gifting clothes isn’t normally received with a lot of excitement, but I just know that any kid who receives this with a pack of markers and is told they can color their shirts will absolutely love their gift.

And as for you, if you have just one sheet of black iron-on vinyl then you can make this in no time!

If you have a December birthday party coming up, a Christmas gift exchange, or some stockings to stuff, then this project is just what you’ve been waiting for!

What Do I Need To Make This Christmas Coloring Shirt?

Here are all the things I used to make this shirt.

  • A Blank White Shirt
  • Black Iron-On Vinyl
  • A Heat Source To Press Your Iron-On Design (I Use The Cricut EasyPress 2, but even your household iron will work.)
  • Your Cricut Cutting Machine With Design Space Readily Available
  • This FREE Christmas Coloring Shirt SVG File (Download at the bottom of this post.)
  • Washable Markers

Before you begin cutting your design, you’ll want to measure how wide and tall your want your design to be on your shirt.

I like to measure using a measuring tape, but if you want to just place your Cricut mat on the shirt, you can get a good gauge as to how wide and tall the design should be as well.

Let’s Make This Christmas Coloring Shirt!

STEP 1: Upload the FREE Christmas Coloring Shirt SVG File to Design Space and size it according to the measurement you want your design to be.

Remember to make sure the little lock icon is closed when you go to size your design to make sure it doesn’t get distorted and retains the correct size proportions.

STEP 2: Mirror, Cut, & Weed Your Design.

Since you’re working with iron-on vinyl, you will need to make sure that you mirror your design before you send it to cut.

You can choose the option to mirror your design after you hit the “Make It” button. It appears on the left side of the screen by where you can see the mats.

Now you’re ready to send it to cut. There are many different iron-on vinyls, but if you’re using just regular material, I like to use the “Every Day Iron On” vinyl setting.

Once you’ve cut the design, weed it.

This means that you will need to remove all of the excess vinyl from your iron-on vinyl sheet, leaving just the design that we’re going to press onto the shirt.

STEP 3: Prepare Your Shirt To Press.

This process is very simple. All you need to do to prepare your shirt is to give it a quick press to remove any moisture from it.

I also suggest pressing it in half lengthwise to let you see where the middle of your shirt is and therefore help you with alignment.

STEP 4: Align & Press The Shirt.

Now that you know where the middle is, you can place your design and give it a good press according to the iron-on vinyl heat settings.

For this shirt I used my Cricut EasyPress 2 and I pressed my design for 25 seconds at 325 degrees.

Once I removed the carrier sheet, to make sure that my iron-on vinyl sticks for as long as possible, I flipped it over and gave it another press at the same temperature and time again, but from behind. Don’t skip this step!

And that’s it, you did it.

You made a Christmas coloring shirt, and now all that’s left is to start coloring it!

3 Important Tips To Know About Coloring Shirts

1. Only Use With Washable Markers. – The reason for using Washable Markers with these designs is that you want it to be colorable after every wash, and therefore extend the fun for the kids.

If you want to only have the kids color it once and it retain that color, then by all means use some Sharpies for the best results.

2. Place A Piece Of Cardboard Inside The Shirt When Coloring. – To avoid the markers bleeding onto the backside of the shirt you’ll want to put in a piece of cardboard between the shirt material.

Once they finish coloring, leave it in for about an hour or so just to allow the colors to dry and then it’s ready to be worn.

3. Don’t Wash With White Clothes. – Don’t make this mistake! If you put the shirt in to wash with whites you might find that the color that comes off then attaches itself to your other whites.

Instead I like to throw in these shirts with dark or bright colors, or better yet with the towels load, which I wouldn’t mind if they stained.
