Open the cut file here and size to fit your shirts.
Cut design from the iron-on material using your Cricut machine.
Tip: Be sure to mirror the image before cutting and also cut with the shiny side of your material down on the mat.
Weed away all excess from around your design as well as the centers of any letters.
Note: Weeding tools do make this a bit easier but they are optional.
Then, use an iron or the Cricut EasyPress to adhere your iron-on to the shirts.
Your big brother little brother shirts are complete and ready for a pair of superheroes!
Make these cute shirts for any pair of brothers that you know. This also makes a great gift for a baby shower so the big brother gets a little something special too!
After making this pair, I want to make ALL the shirts for siblings! They were just too much fun.
If you enjoyed this project as much as I did, I’m sure you can think of other designs to add to your collection of big brother little brother shirts as well. 🙂
Y’all enjoy and happy Cricuting!
Here are a couple of questions I commonly see readers ask about this project. If you have a question but don’t see it down below, please leave it in the comments so I can answer it for you.
Would this project work for older kids?
Although it’s designed for a toddler and a baby, you could definitely make this project for slightly older kids. If you have two boys who are close to each other, these shirts would look adorable on a toddler and his older brother!
Could I use different colored shirts for this project?
Absolutely! I love the way that the design looks on gray, but you could easily use white, blue, green, orange, or another color of your choice. I would recommend avoiding black or red since part of the design will blend in. 🙂
