For this month’s promotion I was given some heat transfer material to play with. I have been wanting to prettify my daughter’s pillowcase since it was just plain green. This is the pillow she sleeps with at night and is not usually a pillow that is used on top of her made bed. I just put it there to display it for the picture.
I used this white flocked heat transfer material that has some soft texture to it.
In my Silhouette program I typed up the word “dream” using the Aharoni font. I enlarged the letters so that they measured about 3 inches in height. Then when using the heat transfer material you need to remember to “mirror your image” so that it will iron on correctly and not be backwards. I cut mine with the blue cutting tip on a speed of 3 and the thickness at 33. I placed the heat transfer material into the cutting machine without the mat. Be sure that the plastic coated side is placed down as you feed it into the machine.
Then I peeled away the heat transfer material that I did not need so that all that was left was the letters. Take your iron and lightly iron the front of the material for just one second or two where you want your material to be on your item. This just sets it in place. Then I placed a cloth between the plastic layer and ironed the material onto the pillowcase. Be sure your iron is not too hot. Do not use it on a heat setting hotter than the cotton setting. When it is securely ironed on, gently peel away the plastic layer.
That’s really all there is too it! Pretty simple. This is a quick and easy project that anyone can do! And the possibilities for this material are endless.
So, if you are still wanting to get yourself a silhouette machine, now would be a great time to get one.
