How to:

(Per Cricut Maker Prompts)

  • 1. Turn on your Maker and open the Space Kitty file in your Design Space
  • Load your first vinyl to the LightGrip Mat and Select “Make it”.
  • Select Infusible Ink
  • Select Load tools and material and continue with the prompts until project is complete.
  • You will have 4 sheets to print. Between loading be sure to check the mat for any debris. Clean as needed.
  • Cut & weed any extra parts off


How to Iron On:

  • Turn on easy press 2 and set to heat guide with your material using the Cricut Guide
  • Be sure to remove the transfer sheet completely from the backing or your shirt will look like mine. If you are doing a single layer design this won’t matter. But unfortunately I learned the hard way that when it comes to ironing you will need to remove the sheets as the backing will remove some of the ink.
  • Insert card stock into your shirt to prevent from bleeding.
  • Preheat shirt at recommended setting
  • Start with the outside design of the cat and work your way in.
  • Add first layer. Place parchment paper between transfer sheet & easy press.
  • Apply with the recommend heating, for the other layers you will not do a pre heat because it will already be warm.

That’s it! I absolutely love the Infusible Ink because it’s ever lasting. While iron on vinyl is great and has plenty of options the Infusible Ink bonds with the thread for a permanent attachment. Let me know if you have any questions in the comments.
