Heat Transfer Vinyl how to and project inspiration!

So facebook rolled out Facebook live. (follow me!) Which basically means you can get up real and personal with People. No editing. lots of Mistakes. Tons of Ummms and soooooos. I have been trying to get comfortable with it and have done it 4 times (dripping sweat when I’m done! DRIPPING!)


Anyways–today was another one-ALL about heat transfer vinyl! Lots of people are familiar with Adhesive vinyl–but heat transfer is activated by the iron or heat press and adheres to fabric. AND its AWESOME!

Heat transfer vinyl roundup

You can go HERE to see the video on Facebook–and in general to just follow me because I’m cool.

And I actually uploaded it to Youtube as well because I like to cover all my social media bases!

(are you following me on youtube?? GO HERE!) I just transfered over to a legit AGAAGG one and I need some followers!!)

and I wanted to link up to all the super cool htv projects I have made to help inspire you!


(p.s….I buy ALLLL my vinyl (and even my silhouette cameo machine) from Expressions Vinyl! Best stuff. hands down!
