First Experience with Heat Transfer Vinyl
I admit it, I'm a little behind on trying heat transfer vinyl. I've been meaning to buy some for a while now to make shirts for work but I kept putting it off.
If you follow my blog, you know my youngest daughter, Jennifer has been on a weight loss journey and as a part of her exercise routine, she took up running. On September 24, she will run her first half-marathon and the family will be there to show our support. She always makes herself some sort of motivational shirt for her races so I decided to design a "Team Jennifer" shirt for all of us to wear that day.
I designed and printed the round badge type logo onto a dark t-shirt transfer and ironed it on. Then cut the letters using Siser Easy Weed Stretch vinyl. We chose that type because it is recommended for use on athletic apparel so Jenn can also use it to make her shirts. It cuts beautifully and is truly "easy weed".
What do you think?
