Recently I did a complete redo on my craft room, using stuff I already had. It had become a dumping ground and I needed order and calm in order to craft. I'll share some video and photos in the next week give or take. For now let's show you the shirts I made.
I bought a pack of plain white toddler shirts in a 2t last week. I already have a nice selection of heat transfer vinyl and I knew I wanted something bright and cheerful. I'm still in the process of learning my Cricut Explore and so far it is my favorite machine! My crafting buddy Christie came over to check out the craft room redo and helped me with the ironing.
Here is my sweet little Ragan sporting her Bee Happy tee. I used flocked transfer from Vinyl Expressions. It turned out pretty cute. I didn't have flocked skin tones so I mixed and matched. The black and yellow are flocked the skin tone is regular.
Let's talk about lessons learned while making these shirts.
#1. Use flocked or regular. Don't mix them. They look ok, it just isn't seamless like I hoped.
#2. Use custom settings and choose iron on glitter. Works perfect for flocked vinyl.
#3. Make sure every layer is flipped. I didn't realize that when I customized the settings, it did not automatically flip the image. As you can see in the close up, they layers aren't even. Look closely at the second t-shirt with the owl. It's awful.
Sorry I can't recall the cartridge the images were on. Create a critter I think. I have a few other things I'm working on and a craft room redo to share with you the next couple days. I'd love to hear some feedback if there is anyone out there seeing this post LOL.
Hugs & Chirps!
