This fun post is part of heat transfer week put on my Expressions Vinyl!I like to sew for my kids! I love to make fun little outfits and it makes me happy to see my kids in them! The downside is that most of the time they can’t figure out which side is the front….and which side is the back! HEAT TRANSFER VINYL TO THE RESCUE! (you can see this cute neon dress here)
These are super easy and fast…and they are small so they are great for scraps! Hop on your silhouette studio and design your custom logo…or some funny ones
(My kids always tell people….”It’s made by my mom” So I thought it would be cute on the clothes I made!)
When working with heat transfer vinyl--you will need to flip it horizontal before cutting! You also load the vinyl upside down– So when you weed it there is clear plastic sheet that stays in tact and you are pulling off all the vinyl that isn’t part of your design! Then flip it onto your project and iron directly onto the plastic sheet—Press (PRESS) for 15 seconds then peel up the plastic sheet!
You can add these fun tags to anything you make! Here’s one on a back of a pillow! or I thought they would be super cute on the pocket of the levi aprons I make. A really fun way to say that “Hey, I made this with my
blood, sweat, tears, sewing machine. ” Especially if you have an etsy shop… or like to give your friends stuff!
Or a special little reminder for your kids of how awesome you are–
Or you know sometimes you buy shirts that have a big itchy tag….cut it off and add some so your kids know which is front and back…literally.
(I had to do this with my daughter’s underwear when she was 4!)
Expressions Vinyl has these sample kits…
All the fun colors they own. You could totally Order a $5 ring….make sure your tag is small enough to fit…badda bing badda boom…you have over 40 tags in all the colors! You can also iron them onto little patches and sew them onto your clothing/projects as needed
I ddiI didn’t make the jacket…but I added some vinyl to the front so it’s kinda considered handmade right?
Or you can make it big and add it to a corner of a blanket!
and now a $100 giveaway for one of you to Expressions Vinyl to get your own fun vinyl!
I’m sorry, I be missing something. Are you using a special product or machine? Are you using a printer? Where do you purchase the vinyl? Can we get it in joann’s or Michael’s? I need more instructions and information….please:-)
I use my silhouette cameo to cut them out. It’s a cutter that hooks up to your computer. I buy the vinyl and silhouette cameo at Expressions Vinyl: http://www.expressionsvinyl.com/

I adore this! I so need to get a machine. I much prefer these type of lables.
I’ve considered ordering my own labels so many times, but this is way easier! I already have the Silhouette and the vinyl… gotta go do some cutting 🙂
