Easy DIY T-shirt Headband with Iron-on Vinyl
Grab your favorite iron-on vinyl and the free Wild at Heart cut file I’ve designed and make this cute fabric headband. I used foil iron-on vinyl, but you can use whichever iron-on or HTV you’d like. You can also modify the cut file in Cricut Design Space to create a design that is uniquely you.
- Cricut machine
- Foil Iron-on vinyl
- EasyPress (or iron)
- Wild at Heart SVG cut file (download below)
- Cut a 3 to 4-inch wide band from the sleeve of yours-shirt. We tie-dyed our fabric, but you can color yours however you’d like.
- Upload the cut file to Cricut Design Space. Size the design to fit your headband and adjust the design how you’d like.
- Follow onscreen instructions to cut the design shapes.
- Iron the designs to the fabric and allow to cool.
Tip: For a really flexible Headband, use the Cricut Sporflex iron-on. I like the foil iron-on because it adds a really pretty shine to the design. Mix the shine with a soft cotton fabric and you’ll get a nice texture combination.
