DIY American Sign Language Shirts

Learning American Sign Language with 5 Little Monsters

September 17th, 2018 • Contributor: Cricut Blog Team

This week’s t-shirt collection is giving us ALL the feels! We’ve loved these collaborations with our influencer community, and we hope you have too. It’s given us a chance to hear and share personal design stories, and we hope you’ve been as inspired as we have.

This latest collection is particularly personal and meaningful. Erica Dietz, of the blog 5 Little Monsters, created a collection of shirts with various phrases in American Sign Language. When asked about her connection to ASL, she shared that three of her children are deaf.

When she and her husband first found out that their two oldest were deaf, they immediately learned a few signs to communicate. They watched as their son’s whole world opened up because he was able to communicate with them. They use sign language every day, and Erica was inspired to create this collection of shirts since it has such a special place in her heart-especially the ‘I love you’ shirt.

Design-wise, we loved the splashes of playful color Erica used in each of these shirts, while keeping a lot of the cohesion of the signs images by using the same color. Plus, ‘cute’ on that baby onesie?! We can’t resist!

Family Bear Tees from GYCT

GYCT Designs Gets Wild with Bear Family Tees

September 3rd, 2018 • Contributor: Cricut Blog Team

We’re beary excited to announce this week’s t-shirt collection! Designed by Chelsea Briner, this stylish set is perfect to outfit momma, papa and baby bear. We love this collection because it’s so on-trend, and was created to embody the spirit of a family with a brand new baby. Seriously, that onesie is adorable!

Chelsea loves the momma bear shirt because she feels like it perfectly describes the way a mother so carefully watches over her cubs. She also took special care when creating the papa bear shirt, making sure it was something a ‘papa bear’ would wear. She shared that her husband would sport it, so she knew it was dad approved!

We also loved the creativity behind using the bear shape in several different ways-both as a backdrop for words, and then as the ‘a’ in baby bear--so clever!

Tip: if you’re looking to iron-on smaller designs, like for a onesie or hat or socks, pre-order our NEW EasyPress2 in the 6”x7” size. It’s perfect for small-surface projects!
