Then moved the big clover off and cut.

You actually load heat transfer vinyl upside down…so whatever you are cutting needs to be flipped (mirror image)

peel away all the vinyl that isn’t part of your design (I have to admit..this is my favorite part!) peel away excess vinyl all the extra vinyl

okay…after it all ready gather your supplies!  clover supplies I cut a basic banner shape and ironed on the vinyl (center it) iron on vinyl and since the shamrock is pretty big so each spot needs a PRESS of 15 seconds. (this shamrock took me 4 presses…so a whole minute!) iron on t-shirt vinyl for banner

Slowly peel up the carrier sheet –if any piece tries to come up with it then lay it back down and iron it again!

Then I made some binding for the edges! Just cut strips and iron how to make binding--a girl and a glue gun and sew around. sew on handmade bias

I ran to Joanns to grab more dark green ric rac to finish off the egges…and found apple green.  so a crafters got to do what a crafters got to do!!!

a crafter has to do what a crafter has to do and just hot glued it around the edges with my hand dandy glue gun
