Here is the sweatshirt that we made for Desiree's son. This looks AMAZING in person!
All of the t-shirt vinyl on this sweatshirt came from http://www.craftvinyl.com/. Here is the sweatshirt that I made for myself, and it is gorgeous!!!!
It is hard to see in the picture, but Tink's dress is made out of a green foil that looks so much better in person. Her wings were cut from Rainbow Deco Sparkle heat transfer vinyl that we got from http://www.specialty-graphics.com/ and it is beautiful! It really sparkles, and again it looks so much better in person.
Now for some tips...
1. When working with t-shirt vinyl, it is better if each piece with the plastic backing can cover the entire image, since there are so many small pieces here, we did not want to do that. Instead what we did was use a leftover sheet of plastic to cover the piece under our Teflon sheet. This helps prevent the vinyl that has already been applied from getting too hot.
2. A heat press REALLY works well for this. The first few that we did was with the iron, and it took a long time to get even one sweatshirt done. My mom has a heat press and she happens to be out of town, so I went to her house and
3. When using glitter or any of the specialty vinyls like the DecoSparkle, you want to apply these pieces last, They are NOT made to be layered upon like the others. Also the glitter does have a bit of glitter that will remain on your transfer sheet and may then transfer onto your sweatshirt in an unintended spot. Typically this is not even noticeable, but we ran into a problem where there were pieces of glitter on an area where we still had to put another piece of the regular vinyl. When we went to lay down that vinyl, it would not stick and we could actually feel the glitter that melted onto the back of that piece, so always do your glitter last.
I have more of these to share, and in addition to this, I am working on my Halloween crafts. Of course, I am anxiously awaiting the eCraft software update, hope that comes soon!
