Easyweed Heat Transfer Vinyl

Step 1: Cut your design out of the Easyweed Heat Transfer Vinyl (following the settings here), and weed the excess. Easyweed HTV is the best of the best when it comes to Heat Transfer Vinyl. It applies at a lower temperature than most similar materials, the backing can be peeled hot or cold, and it doesn’t lift during weeding.

Step 2: Iron on heat transfer vinyl following these heat settings.

Step 3: Remove the clear lining.

Step 4: Apply the stripes to the sleeves following the previous steps.

Now you are ready for all the pool days, campouts, park play dates, s'mores, fireworks, BBQs, you name it. You will be looking good, summering hard, and dressing the part.

Happy crafting & summering!
