Looking for a fabulous DIY Canada Day shirt design? Look no further! I’ve created four fabulous styles that you can make easily with Cricut Design Space.
Where are my fellow Canadians at? You and I can both attest to the lack of representation in pretty much every aspect of life when it comes to finding things “Canadian”, am I right? Well thankfully, I am here to answer your Canada Day DIY prayers.
I created four DIY shirt designs that you can make right out of Design Space. If you have Cricut Access, these projects will be completely 100% free to use. If you don’t have Cricut Access, there may be a small fee if you don’t already own the elements that make up a certain design.
Ready to check them out? The links to all four designs will be at the bottom of this post.

Canada Day Shirt #1: Proud Member of the Eh Team
When creating these designs, I actually created way more than four, but polled all of my Canadian friends to find out their favourites. (The absolute favourite was shared as a part of last months edition of #TotallyFreeSVG.) The runner up was this one. Everyone loved the “Eh” team element!
To create this design, you will need two colours of iron on. I stuck with a red, white, and black theme, since it seemed the most Canadian. If your shirt is black, use red and white iron on. If your shirt is white, use black and red. You get the idea.
Canada Day T-Shirt #2: Eat.Sleep.Breathe
This one was actually one of my personal favourites. I like that it could be easily used for a man or woman, and it’s simple but unique. Again, just two colours of iron on and you have this fabulous shirt.
Another necessity when making these shirts is a good press. I love my EasyPress (which I have already shared many times) and it allows me to create these shirts completely fuss free.
Canada Day Design #3: Canadian Sweet
Because if it isn’t covered in maple syrup, is it even Canadian?
How cute would this look on a little mister or miss for the fireworks? (Unless of course you live in the large portion of Canada where it doesn’t get dark until midnight so your kids never experience Canada Day fireworks because it’s way past bedtime. Not that I know from experience or anything…)
This design is the most complicated of the set, and uses three colours of iron on (the two colours discussed above plus brown/tan). It’s only more complicated in the sense that it has more pieces and layers, but it’s still completely doable for anyone. (If you haven’t layered iron on in a while, you can check out this post for a refresher and important tips.)
Canada Day Shirt #4: 100% Canadian from Eh to Zed
I’m going to be honest here. I don’t know a single Canadian who says eh. However, it’s been the running joke for so long now that we’ve adopted it and completely owned it, just like we do our pronunciation of the final letter in the alphabet. And for the record, we’re right. It’s totally meant to be said “zed”.
This design is also super simple to create and only uses two colours of iron on. I think it would look amazing with the maple leaf in glitter or foil iron on, don’t you?
