I know I know, the Olympics have already started! But I’m a procrastinator crafter, and I whipped up these tees right before opening ceremonies (with about 10 minutes to spare!) – I thought about saving the project and posting it in two years when the next Olympics roll around, but I figure it’s too cute not to share, plus there’s still over a week left of competition, so you have plenty of time to make some for yourself right now 😉
And I have the FREE cut files if you want to make one for yourself, wahoo!
Oh, and I tried my hand at royal icing cookies – – TONS of work, I think I’ll stick to my love of buttercream 😉

DIY Team USA tees
So, for the shirts:
–I used heat transfer vinyl (htv) from Expressions Vinyl (affiliate link, but it’s my go-to when I order – and their shipping is so fast!!) – I love that they have GLITTER!!
–shirts from good ole Walmart (that women’s No Boundaries one in a larger size than I normally wear is currently my favorite cut of tee)
–font for “USA” was Bebus Nueve, “team” in script was Magnolia Sky – I can’t remember what the other “team” was, sorry! – but don’t worry, I have the FREE cut files available for you!
So on the vertical split one, I cut the design into three sections, so you’ll take one section and cut it out of red, another section out of white, and another out of blue. Cutting each section separately so you can change vinyl colors.
Then you lay them out on your shirt and put the puzzle together. Be sure to cut the clear carrier sheet right up to the edges where letters come together. Then just iron (or heat press) into play, peel back the carrier sheet, and voila!
