Hello, I hope you week is off to a good start! Today’s post features flocked Heat Transfer Vinyl from Silhouette and using the weld feature to create text knockout from a shape. Don’t these baby grows look cute? And the flocked HTV is lovely and soft for the baby to feel too.
I hope this post gives you inspiration on how to take plain simple baby grows and customize them and take them up a notch. These can make perfect gifts at a baby shower or for newborns
FLOCKED HTV BABY GROWS process overview:
For full details, along with screenshots on how to design and cut this with your Silhouette, please see the link at the end of post to take you to the Silhouette UK blog for the full post.
To adhered my designs I used an iron to press the HTV onto the baby grows. I find it is best to iron these on a firm surface such as a table – I find my ironing board has to much give to allow me to get good pressure. I place a folded towel down on my table to protect.
Whilst applying heat and pressure with my iron, I place a piece of backing parchment over the top to reduced the chance or scorching the vinyl or fabric. Once pressed, I found it best to let the flocked HTV to cool before peeling.
After I have peeled the backing off, I cover once more with baking parchment and iron over the top again to get a good seal to ensure the vinyl will stay on well following washing etc.
