Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV)

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.

heat transfer vinyl, HTV, present

first HTV shirt

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?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

For those of us celebrating Christmas, I know this week is sort of nuts for a lot of us so I wanted to make sure I scheduled this ahead of time.

I am still working on Christmas cards, making treats to give out to the neighbors, cleaning the house, planning our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day meals, etc.  I also have a list of ‘non-Christmas projects’ that I want to work on, but they will have to wait.

I am hoping that everyone enjoys some time with friends and family.

I am looking forward to the New Year and hope you are too.

Christmas Elf on a Shelf – do you do it?

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!  And since Christmas is now over I feel I can ask this:  Does your family do the ‘Elf on a Shelf’?

There are a couple of blogs that have been posting everything their Elf has been doing around the house and to be honest I don’t get it.  Maybe it is since the daughter is in College, but even if we had little ones (other than Pepper the Golden Retriever) I don’t think we would do it.

So, I am curious: Would you do Elf on the Shelf??
