Free "Shamrock Shenanigans" St. Patrick's Day SVG Cut File

Avoid getting pinched this St. Patrick's Day with a Shamrock Shenanigans Shirt (free cut file)!

St. Patrick's Day is such a fun holiday. Making leprechaun traps, cooking up green-colored food, and wearing green festive shirts are all part of our holiday tradition. Speaking of festive St. Patrick's Day shirts, this "Shamrock Shenanigans" shirt was a lot of fun for me to put together. I hope you enjoy using the free cut file and make a little something for yourself and your family!

To make your own "Shamrock Shenanigans" St. Patrick's Day shirt, you'll need these supplies:

Upload the "Shamrock Shenanigans" cut file into Design Space and size the image to fit your shirt. When cutting your iron-on vinyl, make sure to mirror your image! If you don't, your design will be backwards when you put it on the shirt. To do this, select a mat thumbnail in Design Space before cutting, and click the "Mirror" toggle to reverse the image. Place the vinyl face-down on the mat, load it into the machine and click the "Go" button to cut the vinyl.

"Weed" the excess vinyl by removing all of the parts that don't belong in the design. I usually peel away the outer edges starting at the corner and working my way around the design. Then I use weeding tools to remove the smaller pieces of the design.

Plug in the EasyPress 2 and power it on. Each kind of HTV has a different heat and time setting, so be sure to check the recommended EasyPress settings before getting started. Adjust the heat and time setting to your shirt and vinyl specifications. Once the light turns green and the machine beeps, it's ready to use.

Once the EasyPress is up to temperature, place your shirt on the EasyPress Mat and preheat the area for 5-10 seconds. Lay the HTV down on center of the shirt, with the clear carrier sheet facing up. Set the EasyPress over the vinyl and press the green "C" button. Hold firmly in place while the timer counts down. Turn the shirt over and press the EasyPress firmly again for 15 seconds. Peel off the carrier sheet while the vinyl is still warm.

If you use different vinyls like I did, it's important to protect the vinyl that's already been pressed. Place the other cuts of vinyl onto the shirt, and cover with the Cricut Iron-On Protective Sheet. Press the vinyl into place with the EasyPress 2 the same way and remove the carrier sheets while the vinyl is still warm.

I'm really looking forward to wearing this shirt, and think it would honestly be a fun design for anyone in the family. This would also be a fun design to put on a piece of wood or canvas for some cute St. Patrick's Day decor.

  1. Love the design! Do you happen to remember where you purchased the shirt? I can't find one that doesn't have a white vneck
