Hello Crafty Friends! Today I’m excited to share this cute zebra dress made with Glitter Iron-On vinyl! I used my Cricut Explore and a beautiful black gold glitter Iron-On to create this dress.

My daughter wanted a themed dress for our visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom but she wanted to be able to wear it afterwards without it screaming Disney. After finding a cute tan zebra dress from Gap Kids, I decided to create a design on the front using my Cricut. 

There are so many options for heat transfer materials (HTV) from solid to holographic to glitter and more. I was excited when I found the Black Gold Glitter Iron-On because I feel it compliments the tan zebra print well while also being dark enough to pop. 

Below is the tutorial plus a link to my Cricut Design Space file. You can use it to create a dress as I have or a t-shirt. The design would also look cute on a tote bag or decorative pillow.

Supplies Needed

Setting up the File in Cricut Design Space

Start with my Cricut Design Space file. The design comes with the text “Wild One” underneath the zebra. For this dress, I chose not to use the text and hid that layer.

I resized the design to fit my tan striped dress and chose to cut the design at 6.47″ wide by 5.5″ high. If I were to redo this I would probably make it slightly.

Cutting the Design

Once you are happy with the design and the size, it is time to cut the image using heat transfer vinyl. Lay the material on your mat, shiny side down and don’t forget to reverse your image before cutting. Cut the design then weed it using a Cricut weeding tool. 

Applying the Design to the Dress

Prepare the dress or shirt you are using by finding the center point and marking it with straight pins. 

A ruler helps mark the center of the dress.

Position the weeded design where you want it to lay using your pins as a guide. Use an iron or a Cricut EasyPress to press the design onto the fabric, making sure you remove any pins prior to pressing.

Let the design cool then pull the plastic from the fabric. 

The clear backing sheet of the HTV is peeled from the zebra design.

My daughter and I both love how sparkly the design is. The glitter Iron-On was perfect and I look forward to using it again.

The HTV zebra is black with gold glitter specs in it.

This dress has been a fun addition to my daughter’s wardrobe and was adorable on our visit to Animal Kingdom! Check out my other Cricut Design Space projects for more fun ideas for your Cricut!
