If you need a personalized baby shower gift, this tutorial for how to layer Cricut Infusible Ink is perfect for showing you just how to get it done!
This watercolor baby onesie shirt came out way better than I could have imagined.
And, this is such a simple design. I feel like I might have to make a million different things with this type of watercolor design for Cricut. So very cool!
How To Layer Cricut Infusible Ink
But I can’t get over how perfect this DIY personalized baby onesie is with the Cricut. And, it’s crazy to think this, but it’s true… This is the perfect project for beginners.
Just pick a Cricut blank and you can put this watercolor design on it in just a few minutes–its designed to work with any color set. But I adore this Pink Lemonade color packet.
Infusible Ink projects are a little different than HTV in that the infusing process fuses (get it?!) the ink to the fibers of the fabric while the HTV sits on top.
That means that the Infusible projects are more durable and don’t fade even after a million washes (which is what baby shirts inevitably get).
And, because there’s gonna be a new baby around, there’s going to be a lotta clothes washing…
With base materials like shirts, totes and coasters and uber vibrant colors. Plus the compatibility with any Cricut machine there’s so many things you can do.
I would love for you to leave a comment on what you think of this tutorial.
