Layering HTV in Cricut Design Space

Hello friends!  This is Linh or LV Handcrafted across the socials.  Today I have a tutorial and some quick tips for how to set up your Cricut file to make layering heat transfer vinyl quicker and easier!

You can see my full video tutorial here –

Here are 10 quick & easy steps:

STEP 1
Bring the SVG Separated file into Cricut Design Space.
Scale the image to the size you’d like for your T-shirt.
Ungroup all the individual layers.

STEP 2
Select the layers that are the same color. For example – The blue arch & the blue “Reading”. Click “Attach” 
This locks those layers in their position so they are cut the way you see it as opposed to positioning it to cut more efficiently. It uses up more vinyl, but this makes it easier to position later.
Do this for all layers that are the same color.

STEP 3
Send your project to be cut. Make sure you select the correct materials and also mirror each cut layer.

STEP 5
Stack the individual layers to make sure you understand how it should look fully assembled.

STEP 6
Pre-heat your T-shirt by pressing it for 5-10 seconds

TIPS:

  • I fully locked down my heat press on one of the layers and that was a mistake. It left an impression where the edge of the vinyl transfer sheet was.  I recommend just holding the press but not locking down at full pressure until the very end
  • When placing the next layer try to hover the design over your shirt and get it lined up before placing it. Once it touches down, the previous layer might be warm enough to “grab” the vinyl.  That happened on a couple of the book pages.

Thanks for following along!
