With the exception of the Santa Sacks I created last Christmas, I haven’t used Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) very much. I was a bit hesitant about diving into creating some t-shirt designs for my kiddos, beause I didn’t want to ruin the shirts. But the verdict is in, and I’ve found a new addiction; I’m going to be cutting up HTV like nobodies business!

If you haven’t tried HTV yet, you can read some great step by step tutorials over at Silhouette School, The Pinning Mamma, and Crazy Little Projects.

HTV so easy to use, you just need to be sure to mirror the image, set your blade to the appropriate depth (the program will tell you), and be sure you’ve loaded the product with the plastic side down before pressing cut.

Weeding the material is a bit tough, but once you find good lighting to see the fine lines, it comes off no problem. Unlike vinyl, it won’t stick to itself, it usually comes off in one big piece… so weeding isn’t really that tough, ha.

TIP- When using glitter HTV if you can’t see where the next line to peel from is, if you stretch the lifted side a bit you’ll see exactly where the cut is.

The Class Cutie file I broke into two colors (I’ve separated the pieces for you in the download). You’ll just need to cut the centre from the plastic of the starburst so you can put the text in. Don’t forget to keep the plastic from the starburst so you can replace it for ironing the whole piece together. HTV does not withstand the heat of the iron without the barrier of the plastic. You can also use a sheet of parchment paper.
