Get a free unicorn SVG to make a layered Infusible Ink or iron-on vinyl bag, shirt, or tumbler!

Unicorns are everything magical and special, so it’s no wonder they’re super popular across many spectrums. I’ve designed many unicorns, like my rainbow unicorn and my cute face unicorns, but I thought it would be fun to make my own version of the unicorn head with flowers and pretty eyelashes! This flowery unicorn head style has been trendy in the past year or so, and I wanted to design one that is a little easier to layer with Infusible Ink or iron on vinyl. So today I’m going to show you how to use this free unicorn SVG to make a cute zippered pouch with Infusible Ink!

This Unicorn Head SVG would look great in either iron-on vinyl (HTV) or Infusible Ink on a wide variety of things — T-shirts, totebags, mugs, or tumblers. For this tutorial, I’m going to use Infusible Ink on a zippered pouch / cosmetic bag. If you’d like to learn how to layer iron-on vinyl onto a T-shirt, check out this tutorial for details!

Step-by-step directions to apply a layered Infusible Ink design on a zippered pouch using the cute Unicorn Head SVG


Step 1: Get my Cut Unicorn SVG Design

You can get my free unicorn SVG design (Design #222) from my free resource library. It's available as an SVG for the Cricut, DXF for Silhouette, and PDF/PNG for whatever else you may need it for.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you’re not sure how to upload an SVG file to Cricut Design Space, or you’re having issues (such as getting a message that says “unsupported file”), please watch my free training series, SVGs Made Simple. It will help you SO much!

Step 2: Cut Out Your Unicorn Design

Let me show you how to prepare this file for cutting out in either Infusible Ink or iron-on vinyl in Cricut Design Space.

First, decide if you'd like to keep the "You Are Magic" lettering. If you want to keep it as is (in pink), I recommend you Ungroup everything, then select both pink layers and click Attach to keep them together when they are cut out.

That's mostly all you need to do to prepare the SVG itself. When you're ready, click the green Make it Now button.

On the next screen, you'll want to be sure to MIRROR all layers. Both Infusible Ink and iron-on vinyl are cut out mirrored so they can be applied face down on your project. Select each layer and toggle the Mirror option on.

If you are using Infusible Ink, I also recommend you move your pink layer down on the cutting mat as this will give you room to put the other layers later on. Just click, hold, and drag the pink down a few inches.

Now we'll use a clean green StandardGrip mat to cut our layers of Infusible Ink. It's super important you put your Infusible Ink PRETTY SIDE UP on your cutting mat.

Cut out each color of the unicorn design, which is five layers if you haven't changed any colors from my original.

Step 3: Weed and Layer Your Unicorn Design

It's now time to weed our unicorn layers. Weeding means to remove all of the parts that we don't want to transfer to our project when we apply it with heat. So that means we remove all the extra bits AROUND the designs.

To weed Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets, it's recommended that you employ the “cracking” method. To do this, peel the cutting mat away from your cut design (which is what I always recommend anyway), then slightly bend and roll the cut paper until you hear a little cracking sound (which happens as the cuts separate). Don't worry if your design lifts off the liner a bit. After you "crack" your cut design, just take away the excess paper and you'll be left with just your design on the liner. 

Here's what the unicorn design looks like after you've weeded it -- all you see are the various colors on the liner:

Next, you need to layer your unicorn. I recommend you keep the pink on the liner sheet as is and put all the other colors onto it. Just remove the cut designs from the liner sheet and move them over to the pink liner sheet, like this:

Continue transferring and layering your colors until your unicorn design is complete!

Step 4: Transfer Your Layered Unicorn to Your Pouch

First, if you are using a Cricut EasyPress, refer to the Cricut EasyPress Interactive Quick Reference Guide which will tell you how to prep your material and EasyPress, how to apply, and how to care for the finished product. This takes the guesswork out of the process. You can view the guide at

You'll want to preheat your EasyPress to the proper temperature (I'm using 385°F) and set your timer to the right amount (I'm using 40°F).

Put a piece of white cardstock inside the zippered pouch. Do not fold it to fit; cut it to fit. This cardstock prevents the Infusible Ink from bleeding through to the other side of your pouch.

Pre-heat the zippered pouch for 15 seconds.

Lint roll the surface of the blank to pick up any dust or debris

Place the layered Infusible Ink design on blank, with the carrier sheet (liner) side up, on your pouch, like this:

Place the liner with the layered unicorn design face down on your pouch

Cover the blank and carrier sheet with butcher paper larger than the design.

Be sure to cover your Infusible Ink design with butcher paper before pressing

Press with light pressure at 385°F for 40 seconds. Do not move the EasyPress around while pressing.

When the timer is up, slowly lift the EasyPress and remove butcher paper.

Slowly remove liner while warm (Note: If transfer sheet remains on the surface, remove it with tweezers)

Step 5: Take Care of Your New Infusible Ink Pouch

Allow 24 hours after applying your Infusible Ink before washing in cold water and mild detergent. Tumble dry low or line dry. Do not use fabric softener, dryer sheets, or bleach. Iron if needed (medium heat, no steam). Do not dry clean.
