Of course, I chose a cat image and a pink colored t-shirt to do a project for Cricut®! Next Choosing which of the Cricut Patterned Iron On™  I preferred was a bit hard!  They are all so beautiful!  I chose a pattern that was black like my cat and has a flowery design  (because I love flowers).  I had fun and found the learning process so easy.  Let me explain it to you.

  I started with a basic cotton t-shirt and the idea that I wanted a cute kitty!  To find an image I liked, and that was easy to cut I went to my computer and went to Cricut Design Space™. I chose:  Cat   #M459FD  The First Few Years.
My project link:

I just wanted to use the top layer of the image, as I wanted the color of the t-shirt to become the cat's eyes and nose.

 I also resized the image to make it slightly larger.  I saved my New Project. 

I chose to use the Black with the White printed sheet that comes in the Anna Griffin "Charlotte Sampler" in the Cricut Patterned Iron On™.

I cut a piece of the  Patterned Iron On™ a bit larger than the portion I would need.

Using the Blue Cricut® 12 x 12 LightGrip Adhesive Cutting Mat I placed the cut piece of Patterned Iron On™, shiny side down.  The Cricut® 12 x 12 LightGrip Adhesive Cutting Mats are made to secure lightweight to medium-weight materials with soft-release adhesive for easier removal.

I turned on my Cricut Explore Air™2.  I chose my Saved projects from  Cricut Design Space™ and Selected My Project: the Cat Iron On.  From there I followed the instructions on the screen of my computer.  Easy Peasy!  I had prepared the mat with the material.  I loaded the mat. I Pressed the go button.  The  Cricut Explore Air™2 did the rest.

After I unloaded the mat with the cut image, I found it so easy to peel away the extra Patterned Iron On™, leaving the shiny liner and the cut cat.

Next, I plugged in the Cricut EasyPress™.

  By looking at the chart for using the Cricut EasyPress™and the Cricut EasyPress™ Mat Settings,  I saw I had to set the temperature to 340 Fahrenheit and Pre-heat for 5 seconds.

I lay the cut shaped Patterned Iron On™ shiny side up onto the t-shirt.  When the Cricut EasyPress™ was ready, I applied it to the cut image for  30 seconds.  I then turned the project over and used the Cricut EasyPress™ for 15 seconds.

Patterned Iron On™ requires a Cold Peel for optimal results.  I waited for the t-shirt to cool down completely, and then I removed the shiny layer.
