The Kentucky Derby, or the “Run for the Roses” is the first race of the coveted Triple Crown and is historically held the first Saturday in May. Derby Day is rich in Southern culture from ALL the food, drinks, and outfits – including derby hats! I always celebrate with some easy Kentucky Derby party ideas and host a party for my friends where we cheer for our favorite horses and drink loads of Mint Julep Lemonade, Sweet Tea Mint Juleps, and eat yummy southern inspired desserts like my EASY Berries & Cream Recipe.

How to Make your Own Kentucky Derby Shirt
Note: SVG Files can only be used in upgraded versions of Silhouette Studio
Upload your Kentucky Derby SVG file to your cutting software and size it to fit your shirt. Make sure to MIRROR the design before cutting, and then cut when ready. The shiny side of the vinyl goes DOWN on your mat. Weed away the extra vinyl. Iron on or use the EasyPress 2 to press the vinyl design onto the shirt. If you’re using the Cricut EasyPress, for recommendations based on your materials, you can check out the Cricut EasyPress Recommended Settings.
