DIY SPORTFLEX GYM TOP | CRICUT

Now January is here, some of you may be looking at getting back to the gym!

Don't wear just any old boring gym clothes, check out this cute top made with Cricut Sportflex Vinyl!


WHY SPORTFLEX VINYL?


Sportflex is fantastic for clothing like this, as it stretches with the fabric of the garment, so no cracks or creases in your vinyl!


YOU WILL NEED:


- Cricut Maker

- Explore

- or Joy Machine


- Cricut Easy Press


- Cricut Easy Press Mat


- Cricut Sportflex


- Cricut Weeding Tool


- Gym Top of your choice!


STEP ONE:


First, find the design 'I Sweat Glitter #M16B0D8DB' in Cricut Design Space and add it to the canvas.


STEP TWO:


Make sure it's the right size to fit your gym top before pressing 'Make It'. Select Sportflex as the material setting.


STEP THREE:


Put the sportflex iron-on sheet, shiny side down, onto the mat, load it into your machine, and start cutting.


STEP FOUR:


Repeat this process to cut the other colour of vinyl.


STEP FIVE:


Once cut, remove the mat from the machine, then take the iron-on sheet off of the mat.


Use a weeding tool to remove all of the excess vinyl just leaving the design attached to the clear carrier sheet.


STEP SIX:


Press each layer onto your top using the Easy Press. Check the Cricut heat guide to get the correct heat setting and time for the fabric of your gym top.


Press the bottom layer first then repeat the process for each layer, covering the previous layers with a sheet of baking paper or the largest piece of carrier sheet to protect them.


STEP SEVEN:

Allow your design to cool completely before peeling off the final carrier sheet to reveal your finished design. Pop on your top and head down to the gym to sweat some glitter!
