I made this easy Cricut Infusible Ink Layered Tshirt Idea for a couple of reasons.
First, I needed to make another shirt in celebration of Black History Month, but second, because it’s just a great empowering statement that I love love love.
And, initially when I made my original Black History Month t-shirt, I really just fell in love with the vibrant colors of Cricut infusible ink products–and how wonderful the end product actually feels.

I know it sounds crazy, because heat transfer vinyl and sublimation have been my big things, but I’ve recently just really enjoyed working with Cricut Infusible Inks.
Mostly because you can create a wide variety of colors and patterns, almost as seamlessly smooth as using heat transfer vinyl–but in the wildly cool finish similar to sublimation.
Like, a meeting of the two worlds, it’s pretty awesome.
The biggest difference is that for the Cricut infusible ink transfer sheets (what we are using for this project) and infusible ink pens markers you need to use infusible ink compatible blanks.
But there is a variety of those available and I have yet to be like “oh, I wanted to make X but I can’t find an infusible ink Cricut blank for that”.
You can really tell the difference in the final project, though. The infusible ink is designed to work by bonding with the fibers of the fabric, while the HTV sits on top of the base material. So, it just ends up looking a bit different.
And, frankly, I’m thinking that this awesomely “strong woman” shirt is one of my favorite infusible ink project ideas that I’ve done, but also one of my favorite projects I’ve ever made.
But, I may have to make a second one. Something is telling me that I have a girl that’s planning on stealing this shirt from our laundry as soon as I turn my back. LOL!
Still not sure if it’s for you? That’s ok. I wasn’t either at first (new things are scary).
But if you check out my video, you’ll see just how simple it is. Pretty quick, you’ll be in need of some shirts or a tote to make you a pretty Cricut infusible ink project today! LOL!
