I have a number of VERY difficult people to shop for in my family. My brother is one of them. He has a few hobbies, but works a LOT. He has a condo and he has everything he needs or wants for it. And he has the money to buy himself whatever he wants. But this year I saw a cute idea on a Cricut group I’m in and I tweaked it for his favorite hobby- mountain biking!

It’s such an easy project and he LOVED it. Also, my dad thought it was hilarious so that is just impressive. Now I just need a funny idea for a shirt for him. He’s THE HARDEST to buy for. 

Supplies for the Mountain Biking Shirt

I used my Cricut Maker to make this. If you don’t have one yet, they’re pretty awesome. Click here to check the current price of the Cricut Maker! You could also make this with the older model Cricut machines too.

DIY Mountain Biking Shirt

This is a fairly easy project if you’re familiar with using heat transfer vinyl, but I’m going to walk you through it in case you have never made shirts before. Unfortunately, I didn’t take step by step photos for some reason… but you can see step by step photo instructions on my post about the gym shirts I made.

Start by measuring your shirt. I was working with a large shirt and I took my design (available free to subscribers) and resized it for the width of my shirt. 

Once that was done, I clicked “Make it” on Cricut Design Space, mirrored the image, and followed through to print my image on regular heat transfer vinyl. 

After your image prints on the heat transfer vinyl, you can peel the mat away from the HTV and use a weeding tool to scrape away the bits of HTV that AREN’T part of your design. You’re eventually left with the design itself, stuck to the clear transfer paper. Make sure you get ALL the pieces… I left a bit and had trouble removing it which left a slight flaw in my finished product.

This design goes face down on your shirt. Assuming you mirrored your image, you’ll now see the design face forward, just as it will appear on your shirt. Make sure to center your image properly.

Follow the instructions for your shirt type (the fabric type matters) and HTV to press the image onto your shirt using an iron, EasyPress, or heat press. 

Once pressed, you’re finished! Do you love it!?!

This mountain bike shirt is the best! I’m new to making shirts and have a silhouette. Could I still use this awesome design you made on my silhouette?

I used images from the Cricut library so it won't work on Silhouette. Sorry! Someday I'll figure out how to make SVGs off Cricut ;)
