Budget

Create your own little pocket full of sunshine with this Cricut vinyl project! This is a great way to personalise kids' clothing, giving you a custom-made t-shirt that'll brighten up your little one's day whenever they wear it.

Use up vinyl scraps to make the design with your Cricut machine. You can personalise with their favourite colours or simply go choose whatever scraps you've got in your stash!

The Cricut Maker machine was used to create this project; however, a Cricut Explore Air 2 or Joy machine can also be used.
