What lucky brides out there are bar-crawling for their bachelorette? I’m all for a good bar crawl, having done one myself for my own bachelorette, so I designed a set of tank tops as an ode to my favorite of beverages, wine! :)
For these tank tops, I did a set of four based on Chardonnay, Moscato, Merlot, and Rose; mainly because I enjoyed the puns but also because they are some of my friend’s and I’s favorite wines! I also made a general one for the bride, because after all it is her party. :)
For the Black Tank tops, I used a Rose Gold Glitter HTV and for the Bride I used a Silver Glitter HTV and I love how they turned out! These are also easy designs for those who are still beginners to the weeding and HTV world, I had zero issues weeding or transferring them. :)
1. After downloading the cut files, import them into the Cricut Software. After creating a new project, select Upload Image. Select the file you wish to upload and it will automatically take you to the final upload screen, where you can name the file the select Save. The SVG Files are sized so that they will automatically cut to the size you see in the photos, but if you want to change the size you can do so to fit the tank tops the way you like.
2. After selecting “Make It” Make sure to select the Mirror Mode on the cutting screen. Cut the design in your choice of heat transfer vinyl (I used Rose Gold Glitter HTV and Silver Glitter HTV) with the Iron On (for Easyweed Vinyl) or Iron On+ (for Glitter Vinyl) Setting on your Cricut, with the shiny side of the material down.
3. Weed the additional material off of the backing material so that, looking down with the shiny side up, you can see your design with the correct orientation.
4. Iron your tank top to remove any creases, then center the design over the top half of the tank top. Arrange the design shiny side up, then cover with parchment paper. Make sure to keep the parchment paper between the design and the iron.
5. Set your Iron to the second Highest setting and press the the iron down firmly on the design, not ironing but rather using it as a small heat press. I worked from the upper left to lower right on the design, pressing the iron on each part of the design for at least 20-30 seconds, then overlapping the last position as you move the iron across the design.
6. Remove the backing from the design, leaving the design on the tank top.
7. Repeat with all remaining tank tops! :) If you are ready to try more tank tops, check out our other tank top projects here!
