Faux Shirt Pocket With Patterned Iron On Vinyl

4 Materials
10 Minutes

Do you have a plain T-shirt that needs a little jazzing up? I added a contrasting pocket to a plain black t-shirt, using iron on vinyl.

Gather Supplies

Cricut Iron on Vinyl (I used the Nature Walk Basics sampler)

Cricut EasyPress Mini or Iron

Plain T-shirt

Maker or Explore Machine (optional)

StrongGrip Mat

Cut the Pocket Shape

You can use the Cricut DesignSpace and cutting machine to cut out the shape. Since the design is simple, you could also cut the pocket shape out with scissors.

Iron on the Faux Pocket

Position the "pocket" where you want it on the shirt. I put the shirt on to determine the best placement and used a safety pin to keep it in place. If you have an EasyPress, it is perfect for this small project, or you can use an iron to adhere the iron on vinyl to the shirt.

Once the "pocket" is firmly adhered to the fabric, gently peel away the liner.

Wear it!

The white and black faux pocket adds interest to a plain black t-shirt.
