If you’re wondering whether or not to buy a Cricut Explore Air 2, the answer is yes. I’m moderately crafty and like projects that are done fast. My Cricut machine allows me to be creative and get projects done in the same day.
Like tee shirts. I can literally wake up one day and want to wear a unique tee and make it using my Cricut machine.
I had some Cricut Tee Shirt blanks in my office that I’d planned to use for my annual Mother’s Day get-together but the pandemic killed those plans. I was hoping we’d all be able to get together for Thanksgiving, but that won’t happen either. That’s when I decided to stop waiting and craft the tees I’d planned to make with my family for Mother’s Day.
I had some animal print transfers I knew would look really nice on a tee The pack had three prints to choose from and they all were really nice.
Below are direct links to everything I used to make the tees.

- Cricut Infusible Ink – Animal Patterns
- Cricut Premium Vinyl (Black, Gold)
- Cricut Standard Grip Mat
- Cricut Women’s Tee Shirt Blank

I started with the Cheetah print. Cheetah’s are beautiful big cats with the prettiest spots I’ve ever seen. When I was in Kenya, we experienced watching a Cheetah rest on an Acacia tree branch and one came over to our Range Rover. I was terrified the it got that close, but they are very gorgeous cats.
The next pattern from the pack that I used is the Tiger print to make a tee for one of my daughters.
For the final tee, I used a combination of gold and black vinyl to create this tee for myself.
I like the way all of them turned out.
