Silhouette UK: Brewing Mischief Baby Grow

Hello, for this weeks Silhouette UK post we had to use Glow in the dark heat transfer vinyl.  When I was browsing the Silhouette store for Halloween designs, I saw this ‘Brewing Mischief’ design and instantly knew I wanted to make it into a baby grow. I thought it was such a fun little design that would be funny for a little baby grow as the meaning could mean an array of things! Whatsmore, as it was Halloween related I also used glow in the dark heat transfer vinyl, allowing your baby to join in the fun! Though can’t guarantee the baby will sleep with the glow, so perhaps take it off before nap time!

Before I design my piece in the design space, I like to work out how big the decal will be on my item of clothing. I use a piece of a scrap piece of paper cut to a square and position this over the baby grow. This allows me to see if it is too big or too small for the piece of clothing. This piece of paper was cut to 5 inches, which was large enough for the baby grow. I also tried 4 inches which for me was a little on the small side. 

Brewing Mischief baby grow - pressing tips for using an iron

I don’t have a heat press as I don’t do enough HTV to warrant spending the money on one. I instead use an iron. However, I find the set up below works the best for me with an iron. I place a folded up towel and place this on the floor. The item of clothing is placed on top of this, and then I positioned the HTV decal over this. Lastly, I add a sheet of baking paper over the top to prevent and scorching.

I prefer ironing this on the floor as opposed to an ironing board, and this solid surface of the floor allows me to get good pressure when applying the heat. My ironing board isn’t the sturdiest and therefore opted for the floor!

I wanted to show you this picture as it was fun; as I was heat setting the vinyl, it kept glowing briefly as I removed the iron. Obviously, it glows in the darkness of the iron over the top, and you get brief glimpses of it before it fades when you removed the iron.
