I have the cutest free pineapple SVG to share with you today!
We’ve been on a bit of a t-shirt making kick lately around my house. Heat transfer vinyl just makes it so easy to make whatever you want!
My kids have asked for unicorns, owls, guitars, and we have made them all easy peasy!
I have been wanting to make a pineapple shirt, and that’s where this design came from! I wanted it to have a more photo-realistic look with multiple colors, and I’m pretty happy with how it came out.
My daughter has already asked for her own pineapple shirt, so I’m sure we will be putting it to use again soon. I’m thinking there’s probably a pink pineapple shirt in my future.

How to Make Your Own Realistic Pineapple T-Shirt
If you are brand new to making your own t-shirts with iron on vinyl, be sure to first read my detailed beginner’s guide to working with heat transfer vinyl.
Step One. Cut Design.
My free pineapple design is made up of four different colored sections, which will need to be cut from four different colors of iron on vinyl.
First start by opening the design up in your cutting machine software. Next, you may need to ungroup the different colored pieces of the design to cut each section separately.
If you are working with a Silhouette, be sure to check out my favorite technique for cutting multi-color designs with my Silhouette – this simple Silhouette cut by color technique.
Step Two. Weed.
After cutting out each different color of the design, you will need weed or remove the excess vinyl from around your design.
Repeat the process for each color.
Step Three. Iron.
After weeding, you should have all four pieces of heat transfer vinyl ready to be put together like a little pineapple puzzle.
I started with the yellow piece. Figure out the placement for the pineapple on your t-shirt, and place the yellow piece accordingly with the plastic sheet on top.
Iron for 5-10 seconds – just enough to get that layer to stick, remember that first layer will be getting more heat with each additional layer. Peel up the plastic sheet and move on to the next piece.
And that’s it! Enjoy your new top (or tote bag or art or whatever you put it on!)
