Cheer on Your Team With These DIY Sports Shirts

October 8th, 2018 • Contributor: Cricut Blog Team

Fall is arguably the best season of the year for many reasons but one of the top contenders is sports. Between Fantasy Football Leagues, cheering on your alma mater in football, or going to an NBA game, magic is in the air. Cricut has designed a set of shirts for allll the sporting events your heart desires.

Check out these football shirts! Wearing these under Friday night lights, watching high school football rivals, is straight off a TV show. All of these designs are available in Design Space and are waiting to be used with your team’s colors!

Nothing but net! I don’t want to speak for everyone but it’s hard to beat the excitement of a basketball game. I might be biased because basketball is inside and we can all stay warm, but I love watching basketball! These shirts are so adorable with a perfect splash of color. These are designs that anyone can make! Whether you’re new to Cricut or not, this is a fun and easy iron-on project.

Throw a Great Tailgate Party

Customize Your Tailgate Party

September 25th, 2018 • Contributor: Cricut Blog Team

Team spirit runs deep here at Cricut. So, when we came up with the idea for creating the ultimate tailgate party, we left no hotdog unturned. Seriously, we had way too much fun creating this scene! We designed, embellished and customized everything from yard games, t-shirts, food trays, banners and flags, face stencils, car decals and even oversized blankets. All with the help of Cricut Maker, Cricut EasyPress, Cricut Iron-on and Permanent Vinyl.

At the heart of the tailgate scene is the idea of two families who are best of friends except for that one day each year when they are rooting for their respective crosstown schools (let the friendly bantering begin!).

Let’s look at the custom t-shirts.

Custom t-shirt designs are the perfect billboard to bring the heckling between friends to life, while also representing your school spirit (be sure to share with us your personalized t-shirts supporting your team!). We created a total of 5 t-shirt designs making sure we considered tees for both the kiddos and adults. Some used the layering technique, so, if you are new to iron-on, be sure to brush up on your knowledge of using layers first.

The Game Day Jerseys (my favorite) used a high-quality, stretch material so we went with SportFlex Iron-on™. Beyond the t-shirts, be sure to also check out the custom iron-on Tailgate Blanket, Game Day Hat, and Game Day Duffle Bag, along with the awesome Tailgate Chairs.

Next up, we wanted to make sure our tailgate area was properly ”flavored” with team colors. To do this, we used a lot of our new Premium Permanent Vinyl. From cups to cars, to game boards to megaphones, we “tagged” our party area with fun labels, decals and stickers. I especially loved our touchdown megaphone that the kids found useful (eek!). The Football Cornhole game was also a hit. The Premium Permanent Vinyl is not only easy to work with (lays flat on cutting mats with no bubbling or tunneling), but is also UV and water resistant.

Labeling and personalizing also extended to the food trays, koozies and the items carrying all our gear. The cute hamburger and hot dog trays were perfect for the kids and the coolers (both soft- and hard-sided) were properly tagged using permanent vinyl. Next year, we are already talking about making our Tailgate banners even larger!

We had a total blast creating this tailgate scene and would love to see how you all create your own tailgate parties. Be sure to share and save in Design Space for everyone to enjoy.

Shirts

One of the easiest ways to show your team spirit and love of sports is with a shirt. You can make them to honor your favorite team, interject some humor, or just celebrate sports in general. Go team!

If you're more into what foods you get to eat than the actual game, this is the perfect way to humorously admit that.

As this shirt admits, sometimes it's hard to choose which sport is the best! I love how this crafter created a heart using both a football and soccer ball.
