Cricut Purrfect Patterned Iron-On
Have you tried Iron-On Vinyl yet? It’s really amazing stuff! I love to make custom designs for shirts, and you can even use iron-on vinyl on wood surfaces! Cricut has just released a new iron-on product that is so much fun! Patterned Iron-on! There are some really beautiful patterns and I was so excited to have a chance to check it out recently! Total game changer! There are currently 27 different patterns available in 9 different sampler packs.
I had such a hard time choosing which ones to try because they’re all gorgeous! Each pack comes with 3 12″ x 17″ sheets. Patterned Iron on can be used on any of the materials you’d use regular iron-on with so there are endless possibilities! I used this Purrfect Patterned Iron-On to make my cat obsessed teen daughter a cute new shirt!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Purrfect Patterned Iron-On Shirt:
- Cricut Cutting Machine (I used my Cricut Maker)
- Cricut EasyPress or Iron
- Cricut EasyPress Mat
- Cricut Patterned Iron-On Vinyl (I used the In Bloom Pink Sampler Pack)
- Glitter Iron-On
- StandardGrip Adhesive Cutting Mat
- Cricut Portable Trimmer
First, create your design in the Cricut Design Space. Here is a link to my Purrfectly Cute Kitten design you can use my ready-made design, or you can create your own in Design Space!
If you want to use mine, just click that link or the picture, adjust the image to fit your T-Shirt if needed (The design is already sized for a standard adult or teen shirt), and press “Make It” to send the design to your Cricut Machine.
Trim your patterned iron-on sheets. Some people prefer not to trim their iron-on before cutting, but I like cutting it down to size first especially since I am using three different patterned colors. Each kitten needs a 4″x6″ piece of patterned iron-on.
Place the 4×6 piece of patterned iron-on, patterned side down, on the StandardGrip cutting mat and load it into the machine.
Make sure to select the “Mirrored” option in Design Space before cutting the Purrfect lettering especially. I chose to mirror each cut.
Select Patterned Iron-On from the list of materials, and push the blinking Cricut C button on your machine to go!
Remove your cut patterned iron-on from the mat and weed off the excess material.
Place your EasyPress mat under the Tee Shirt. Heat your EasyPress to 340° F and set the timer for 50 seconds. Preheat the tee shirt for 15 seconds, and place your cats side by side on the tee shirt. Press for 50 seconds, and then flip the shirt and press the back side for an additional 15 seconds. If you are using an iron for your iron-on project, instead of the EasyPress, you will need to set it on the Cotton setting, hold for 50 seconds on the front side with the iron-on, flip and hold for an additional 15 seconds on the back of the tee shirt.
Patterned Iron-On is a cold peel iron-on product. Wait until the cats are nice and cool before peeling off the liner. I combined glitter iron-on with the patterned iron-on for my project. The two can’t be layered and the patterned iron-on can’t be layered with itself either. Press Glitter Iron-on at 340° for 20 seconds (with an additional 15 seconds on the back side). Glitter iron-on is a hot peel. While I was waiting for my cats to cool, I ironed on the glitter PURRFECT word and peeled off the liner immediately.
You can check out this video I made to see the project happen!
I can’t wait to try out the other great patterns! Which purrfect Patterned Iron-on will you try first?
