Let's Go Girls! Make Your Own Bachelorette Party Shirts

Bachelorette parties are a really fun time for any bride and her besties, and they are the perfect chance for crafty people to dazzle! And we're here to state the obvious: creating your own bachelorette party shirts with a Cricut machine is the best way to personalize your celebration. If you haven't hopped on the electronic cutting machine bandwagon yet, a Cricut machine is a tool that helps cut things out with pinpoint accuracy. (If you've been a reader for awhile, you'll know about our Cricut DIY ideas for all of your wedding needs!)

Bonus: we have scoured Etsy and found lots of brilliant designers who have already created gorgeous Cricut-compatible downloadable files for your bach party makes. Along with a few of our current faves, we're also sharing answers to the most commonly asked questions we receive about ironing on bachelorette party shirts. So let's get right to it!

How can I make bachelorette party t-shirts with my Cricut?


If you're a beginner to Cricut, you'll need to know that a common cutting file is called an SVG, and this is essentially a design file for you to cut out with your Cricut machine. You can find these SVG files for Cricut on Etsy and DIY craft blogs or websites. When browsing Etsy and beyond, you will want to search specifically for SVG or PNG (with transparent background) files along with the wedding theme or wedding words you're looking for. After that, upload the SVG file into Cricut Design Space, and that's it! It reads the file and tells your machine where and what to cut. You will need to resize the width or height of your image for each t-shirt you make, so you have flexibility on the size for your needs!

What materials do I need to make wedding shirts with my Cricut machine?


To make t-shirts, you have two options to use: Iron-On (also known as heat transfer vinyl or HTV) and Infusible Ink (aka pre-made sublimation transfer sheets). For wedding-specific shirts, we recommend iron-on vinyl though because this can be used on any kind of fabric or t-shirt. Infusible Ink is limited to clothing that is mostly made out of polyester, so 100% cotton won't work. Infusible Ink also doesn't work well on dark-colored shirts unless you first prep your shirt with a white iron-on background. Overall, Infusible Ink has a few more limitations, and unless you're not new to your Cricut machine, you may just want to go the easy route with HTV!

With iron-on vinyls, there are metallic golds, silver, neutrals, glitters, bolds, pastels, and more when it comes to colors, so you'll definitely find something to match your bachelorette or hen do theme!

After you've decided which material you're using, you'll also need an EasyPress or clean household iron. The EasyPress does take the temperature/duration guesswork out of making a perfect t-shirt, so if you have a lot of shirts to create, the EasyPress may be a good option for you to look into! If your budget is limited or you don't see yourself making shirts after the wedding, your normal iron will work as well.

And if you plan on making a business out of your wedding shirts, the Cricut Autopress is a must-have for batch making. You can read more about our thoughts on the Autopress in our DIY Wedding Welcome Bags tutorial!

Which Cricut machine is best for making wedding t-shirts?


A Cricut Explore Air machine is perfect for cutting all t-shirt designs. As most t-shirts aren't giant projects, these machines give you plenty of length or width for cutting out your designs. It also is a great machine for all of your wedding DIY projects, and the one we use for our Cricut wedding tutorials. So once you're done with your shirts, you can move forward the other DIYs on your wedding to-do list!
