Hey, it’s Dorlene and I’m here to share a Heat Transfer Vinyl project with you. It’s my granddaughter’s first Halloween this year so I had to create a cute ahem, I mean spooky Halloween bodysuit. Luckily Printable Cuttable Creatables has many images to choose from. I used the My First Boo T122 cut file since it really is her first Boo!
I love using these images because each image has multiple ways to cut it. Check out the photo below:
One image comes with multiple offsets/borders (perfect for paper projects) and one without (perfect for vinyl / HTV). I decided to use the one without since I didn’t want too many layers for her onesie. When working with Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV), I like to eliminate as many layers as possible. In order to remove the top image, I ungrouped the images and then selected the top one. Once it’s selected, I clicked on the trash can on the top right in Cricut Design Space.
Don’t worry about deleting the image from Design Space. This only affects the current project, not the uploaded image.
I changed the size to fit the onesie and then selected Make It. The most important thing about using HTV is that you must mirror the cut. The reason why is that there’s a transfer sheet attached to the front part of the HTV so when you’re ready to cut, you place the shiny (transfer sheet) side down on the mat.
I followed the color scheme just as the image appears. Once all the layers were cut, I laid them on top of each other in order of pressing.
Even though I lay the layers on top of each other in press order, you must press each layer down separately so you don’t accidentally press the HTV onto one of the transfer sheets – ask me how I know this. 😉
Since this image and bodysuit are so small, I used my mini press and a Teflon sheet to ensure each layer is pressed and protected. Be careful because the Teflon sheet can get pretty hot!
Once everything is pressed, you get a super cute First Boo baby bodysuit for your loved one!
