BBTB2;Sport Challenge

Hi there, it’s my turn to host the two week challenge at the Bitten By The Bug 2 (BBTB2) challenge site. I chose the challenge theme...sports. We’re a big sports family and were so excited when professional sports returned. Sure, there aren’t many fans at the games, but we still get to enjoy all the games from the comfort of our family room.

So whether you’re routing for a professional team, your own All Star or out there on the field, I’m sure you can come up with a sports themed project. Check out the YouTube video I posted:

We’re big San Francisco 49er fans and I created this t-shirt at my daughter’s request. It was actually really easy. 

Here are the written instructions:

Choose your word and font in Design Space. I used Superstar. Color and size the word to your liking. I chose 3” because it was a measurement that could easily be cut in half (you'll see why in the next step).

Then duplicate it. Change the color of this duplicate copy. It’s now RED. Add a square shape and unlock the bottom left padlock so you can drag this to a rectangle. The rectangle needs to be the same length as the word and half the height of the image.

Cover the top half of the RED word, select both the base word & the rectangle and slice. By slicing you now have a top and bottom portion of the word. 

Duplicate the top and move both above the whole word. Once you determine the location, group the two top halves together. Repeat for the two bottoms. That’s it!

Be sure you mirror the images before you cut since we’re using HTV.

I had to use Sport Flex HTV because of the spandex tank. I pressed the red vinyl first and then completed the tank top by adding the gold vinyl in the middle.

Now it's your turn...create a sports themed project using your Cricut and link it to the BBTB2 challenge site. Be sure to let us know how you used your Cricut.


  1. Great project and I love how you really highlighted the gold by adding the red splits above and below.

  2. awesome project! thanks for the great inspiration!


  3. Thanks for the instructions on how to make this shirt. I love the colors and design.

  4. Love it. Everyone is going to want one. You know I now have to make one of these for myself. Go Niners.

  5. Wow, looks so cool!!!! (Even if I'm NOT a 49ers fan, lol). Glad we can at least watch football!


Thanks for visiting. I appreciate your comments. I love sharing my projects with you and hope to encourage you to create things on your own. Thanks again!
