Learn how easy it is to make a Cricut Infusible Ink project using Cricut blanks and fun transfer Infusible Ink sheet colors and patterns!
Cricut’s Infusible Ink transfer sheets are a fun and easy way to make professional-looking and colorful projects that won’t peel, crack, or flake. You can get really vibrant colors that are permanently infused into the material. AND you can create designs with multiple colors, which is what I want to show you how to do today! Today Cricut released four new blanks — pillow shams, wine bags, cosmetic bags, and toddler T-shirts in sizes 2T, 3T, and 4T! So I made four new designs for these Cricut Infusible Ink Projects, one for each blank, and they are FREE for you to use!
Watch me apply all four of these Infusible Ink designs in this video workshop:
For these Infusible Ink projects, you’ll want a Cricut Explore, Maker, or Joy (any one works fine) and an EasyPress (either an original EasyPress or an EasyPress 2 — and it needs to be big enough to cover your design in one pass). You can also use a heat press, but you can’t use a household iron — it won’t get consistently hot enough across its surface to properly infuse the ink, and it’s not typically big enough for a T-shirt design anyway.
Beyond the machines, you need the Cricut Infusible Ink transfer sheets in the colors or patterns you want to use.
And, you need DESIGNS! I made four fun colorful designs, all very easy to apply, using the newest Infusible Ink transfer sheets that came out in May!

How to Use Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets with Wine Bags, Cosmetic Bags, Pillow Shams, and Toddler Tees
- Set your EasyPress to 385°F and set the timer for 40 seconds
- Put a piece of white cardstock inside the blank. Do not fold it to fit; cut it to fit.
- Pre-heat the blank you’ll put your Infusible Ink on for 15 seconds
- Lint roll the surface of the blank to pick up any dust or debris
- Place Infusible Ink design on blank, with the carrier sheet (liner) side up
- Cover the blank and carrier sheet with butcher paper larger than heat plate
- Press with light pressure at 385°F for 40 seconds. Do not move the EasyPress around while pressing.
- Slowly lift the EasyPress.
- Slowly remove butcher paper
- Slowly remove liner while warm (Note: If transfer sheet remains on the surface, remove it with tweezers)
