Make this fun Black Friday shopping shirt for your ride-or-die shopping crew. This Black Friday Squad SVG file makes it easy to pull together the perfect matching outfits to wear while you shop till you drop.
The holidays are here and I’m so excited! I feel like I say that about every season but THIS season is the best. I love everything that comes with Christmas, especially the traditions. Our family traditions center more around baking, decorating and Christmas light viewing but I KNOW that there are many many people who hit the stores on Black Friday for the deals. I’m more of a shop-from-the-couch kinda person but if you have that tribe that is on a mission, this Black Friday Squad SVG file is perfect to make coordinating outfits for the big night!

HOW TO USE THE BLACK FRIDAY SQUAD SVG FILE
I’m going to go through how to use the Black Friday Squad SVG file with heat transfer vinyl to make a fun shirt but you can also use the SVG file with sublimation too. This post gives an overview of how to sublimate onto fabric. You can also use Cricut Infusible Ink for sublimation if you do not have a sublimation printer. This post lays out how to sublimate with Cricut Infusible Ink. If you are not into matching shirts, this Black Friday SVG file would also be great to use on hats for your girl gang shopping crew. Here are the supplies that I recommend to make the shirt shown above.

HOW TO MAKE BLACK FRIDAY SHIRT
- Grab the Black Friday Squad SVG file here.
- Upload the file into Silhouette Studio and cut it out onto heat transfer vinyl (HTV). I like to use Siser Easyweed HTV because it is easy to weed with and holds up well in the wash. If you want to use multiple colors of vinyl, this tutorial will show you how to cut out multiple colors of vinyl.
- Weed away the excess vinyl.
- Place an EasyPress Mat inside the shirt. Center the vinyl design onto the shirt and use the EasyPress 2 to adhere the vinyl to the shirt. Make sure to check the material that the shirt is made from (cotton vs. polyester) because the time and temperature that you use will vary depending on the material. Cricut has a handy interactive guide that you can use to find recommended settings. Siser recommends setting the EasyPress temperature 15 degrees higher than the Cricut recommended settings for Siser Easyweed. I recommend using an EasyPress 2 instead of an iron because you can set the exact temperature and the plate provides more even heat than an iron. Here is a detailed tutorial on how to use a Cricut EasyPress 2.
- When layering different colors of vinyl in one design, you need to adhere them to the shirt one color at a time. This post goes over the best way to layer heat transfer vinyl.
- Once the EasyPress beeps, remove the carrier sheet from the design. Refer to the Cricut heat guide for a warm peel vs. cold peel. With a warm peel, you want to peel the carrier sheet up right away (making sure not to burn your fingers though). With a cool peel, remove the carrier sheet once it gets to room temperature.
- If any portion of your design is not sticking, simply place the carrier sheet back and press again.
