Long time no post… I just saw a photo of a Christmas present I made so I figured I would do a quick post.
Who else has gotten into using Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV)? There are many videos on YouTube, individual blogs, etc so I won’t repeat how to do it, but I will show you the first project that I did for a family member.
The lighting wasn’t great, but the trees are a solid green. I used my Sizzix hand die cutting machine and some of the dies I had for making scrapbooks. I had to play around with which way the HTV needed to be placed on the die since I wasn’t able to electronically flip my text.
The shirt is still being worn, but I have had to touch up a few of the letters with an iron. I am still working on the correct amount of time, etc that they should be ironed for, etc.
Since this original shirt I have made eight more shirts for different family members. So far I haven’t heard that the shapes or letters have fallen off.
What is your latest craft project?
Later – Heather
