Nerd Craft for Pi Day: How to Make a Glitter Iron On Shirt

Does anyone else get nerdily excited about Pi Day on March 14 (or 3.14 - Pi day - get it?). My youngest sister is a total Pi nerd and has some ridiculous number of digits of Pi memorized so I made this fun shirt for her. Embrace your inner nerd make your own Pi shirt to celebrate the March 14th, too!



Step 1: Create Graphic
Create your image to cut out in Cricut Craft Room. The heart is just a basic one that comes in craft room and the Pi symbol is the from the Cricut Brooklyn Iron-on cartridge. I made mine about 3 inches wide and 2.5 inches tall

Step 2: Cut
Cut out the vinyl following the instructions on the package. 

For a detailed photo walk through of this process, see this post: How to Make a Cricut Tools Storage Bag with Iron-On Glitter Vinyl.

Don't forget to flip your image before you cut it out!!

Step 3: Iron
Follow the instructions on the package, or follow the photo instructions here: How to Make a Cricut Tools Storage Bag with Iron-On Glitter Vinyl for applying the vinyl to the shirt.

Step 4: Wear
Once the applique is cool and you've removed the backing, wear your Pi love shirt with nerdy pride!

Special thanks to my friend, Jessica, who modeled this shirt for me. Don't you love that hat she's wearing? She makes them and sells them! Check her out on Facebook here.
