My brother and his wife have three amazing little girls. I love watching each of them navigate different life experiences with confidence and maybe a little bit of sass. The spiciest of the trio? Their three-year-old daughter, Iris. Whether it’s dancing across a stage in a fairy costume or downhill skiing at Sundance, she does it with ATTITUDE.

There isn’t another kid on the planet (okay, possibly my little neighbor Bridgette) who could pull off this sunshine and hurricane t-shirt design better!
Sunshine and Hurricane T-Shirt and Cut File
To recreate this project you will need:
Sunshine and Hurricane Cut File PNG or PDF
T-Shirt (I love simple Hanes brand tees for the little ones and Target’s A New Day tee for women.)
Heat Transfer Vinyl (I used gold glitter HTV from Expressions Vinyl.)
Heat Press or Iron (I use the Cricut Easy Press.)
- Download the cut file in the format that works best for you (see supply list above).
- Upload the design to your design software and create the appropriately sized layout.
- Mirror the image so that the text appears backwards on the screen. Feed the heat transfer material into your machine with the glossy side down. Select HTV in the media menu and cut.
- Peel the negative space in the design off the plastic backing, leaving only the words and shapes on the clear plastic transfer sheet.
- Pre-heat the t-shirt you’re planning to transfer the design on for about five seconds and crease the center for reference.
- Position the design on the clutch face down so that you see it through the clear transfer sheet. Your text should be facing the right direction at this point.
- Place a thin cloth or parchment paper over the design and place a heat on top PRESSING FIRMLY into the design for 45-60 seconds OR if you have this amazing little portable heat press 15-20 seconds!
- Remove the iron and cloth. Gently peel up the transfer sheet. If the HTV continues to stick to the transfer sheet, replace the cloth and iron again making sure to apply pressure.
Note: Follow the instructions on your HTV to determine if the transfer sheet should be pulled back when the vinyl is still hot or if you should wait until it’s cooled. When using glitter, I pull back the transfer sheet pretty immediately.
In true Iris style, she initially refused to put this t-shirt on…then again, why wear a t-shirt when you can be dressed as a princess? Ha!
I absolutely love this sunshine and hurricane t-shirt and cut file. I’d love to see you sassy gals sporting the design!
