Making a Cat Shirt with Cricut Joy

We recently adopted two new kittens, one for each daughter. Even though they are fun and playful, my daughter was having a down day. So, I decided tomake her a cute shirt to commemorate her new kitten. I used my Cricut Joy and Smart Iron-on Glitter along with the cat image from Cricut. I am not sureif it brightened her day but she did like it!

I purchased the image below from Cricut and then using the contour tool, I removed the facial elements. If you would like that image you can access thealtered image here: [cat image]
I loaded the Joy with Smart Iron-on face down.  
After weeding, I placed the image on the shirt.
tip: iron a slight fold in the center of the shirt, fold your iron-on in half and crease.
Now you can align the center of the shirt with the center of the image easily.

I used the heat setting and time recommended by Cricut’s¬†heat setting guide.
330 degrees for 30 seconds on the front and then turn over and 15 seconds on the back.
Cold peel.

And here she is wearing her new shirt!
