There are few things I get more pleasure from than making my husband wear handmade t-shirts on Father’s Day. I know, I know, wearing this t-shirt is total cheese but the kids love it so much that it’s totally worth it! I’m sharing this free Father’s Day T-Shirt Free Cutting File to make your life a little easier when it comes to buying that special guy in your life a gift. Hope you find it useful!
Scroll to bottom for an awesome Expressions Vinyl giveaway!
This Father’s Day T-Shirt Free Cutting File is sponsored by Expressions Vinyl and contains affiliate links. The small percentage I may earn off your purchase comes at no extra cost to you and helps T&T continue to offer free printables and tutorials!
The only supplies needed for this project are blank t-shirt (I got mine at a local store but here’s something similar from Amazon), a cutting machine, and EasyWeed Stretch Heat Transfer Vinyl in white from Expressions Vinyl, and the Father’s Day T-shirt Free Cutting File found below. I love love love the stretch vinyl for t-shirts because I feel like it lasts longer with heavy wear. It cuts and weeds just as easily as the standard heat transfer vinyl but also gives just slightly when stretched. Highly recommend it!
Grab the Father’s Day T-shirt Free Cutting File HERE (PDF, SVG)!
Open the Father’s Day T-Shirt Free Cutting File in your cutting program. You’ll notice that there’s a blank space after the sentence “Rocking It Since…” Use the cutting program to add the year that your father or husband had their first child. Use a similar font to Arial to match the existing words. Make sure to mirror the image and follow the suggested settings for cutting HTV. Trim and weed to reveal your masterpiece!
Depending if you have a heat press (I wish!) or just a basic iron, layer a protective piece of fabric over the vinyl and begin adhering to the center of the t-shirt. Make sure the vinyl is secure before removing plastic backing.
Tada! You now have a super cute Father’s Day t-shirt to give that special guy in your life! I’m thinking of making one for my dad as well as my husband this year. After all, he’s been rocking it since 1972. Hope you enjoy making this t-shirt and have a great time celebrating Father’s Day!

Thank you, this is super cute and I’m excited to try. Can I ask what size should the whole image be? I’m new to using cricut. 🙂 Thank you.
Really liked the design of the Vinyl. I am actually thinking of gifting a T-shirt to my dad. Same as this. He has taken good care of me and He definitely deserves appreciation. This tee will make him feel great.
