Lucky St. Patrick's Day Shirt with Free Cut File

Stay pinch-proof on St. Patrick's Day with this FREE Lucky Cut File!

Free Lucky Cut File

Looking for something fun and pinch-proof to wear on St. Patrick's Day? This "Lucky" 4-leaf clover design is just what you need to add a little luck o' the Irish to shirts, home decor, and more! I had a lot of fun putting this design together, and am excited to wear something new this St. Patrick's Day. I can't wait to see what you create with this design and your Cricut machine for yourself!

To make your own Lucky shirt, you'll need these supplies:

Lucky Cut File in Cricut Design Space

Upload the "Lucky" cut file into Design Space*. Select the design and change to the color of HTV/Iron-On Vinyl you are using. Next, change the size of the image to fit your shirt in the top menu.

Before cutting the 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 the mat thumbnail in Design Space before cutting, and click the "Mirror" toggle to reverse the image.

*Here's a great tutorial on how to upload your own images into Cricut Design Space.

Iron-On Vinyl with Cricut Maker Machine

For this shirt, I used white HTV. Place the vinyl face-down on the mat, and load it into the machine. Change the material settings to the type of vinyl you are cutting, and then 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.

Cricut EasyPress

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.

When 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 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.

Free Lucky Cut File

The cut file comes with multiple file types, so you can actually cut the design with any vinyl cutting machine, including a Cricut. I hope you enjoy using this cut file, and I would absolutely LOVE to see your creations!! Tag me on Instagram and Facebook, and leave a comment/photo on the project pin on Pinterest!
