Cricut is letting everyone use several of the Create A Critter 2 images for free this week. Yippee!
Since Hartly is SO excited about the ghosts on the Spooky Tree, I thought I would use the adorable ghost image to make her her very own Eeek shirt.
And I decided I would share the ups and downs of working with vinyl with you.
For the Flocked Vinyl that comes backed with a special protective covering I treated it just like heavy cardstock; however, I double cut it and taped it to the mat.
The regular heat transfer vinyl I cut as regular cardstock without any problems or issues.
After picking the perfect spot for my little ghost I started to iron.
Do you see any thing wrong with this picture?
Yes, I’m ironing my image on the WRONG side of the shirt! Yikes!
After carefully peeling my ghost off the back I re-applied him to the front.
This just goes to show you how forgiving vinyl can be.
And it also shows how I like to use Parchment Paper as my protective covering, since I can cut the paper to size.
The second layer of the pirate hat and eye patch will easily cover up my little oppsies.
Don’t be timid with the iron as it takes considerable heat and pressure to get all the layers to stick.
After all the layers are in place and attached I like to go over them all again to set everything one last time.
Just be very careful with the regular vinyl as it can easily scorch if not covered with transfer mesh, a cloth or parchment paper.
I added a few buttons as decorations, and my shirt is done.
It’s a ghost!
