My son is playing on the football team for his school. I am so proud of him that I decided to support him by making some T-shirts with his name. I made a T-shirt for all my family to wear to his game! LOL. Even my granddaughter, who is only nine months old, was supporting him.
This is very simple to do. What you will need:
3. Iron or Heat Press
Design your own artwork in MTC or KNK Studio and cut it with your KNK cutter machine. IMPORTANT: because you cut iron-on with the adhesive side up, remember to mirror your lettering and shapes before cutting. Also, you only cut through the vinyl layer, and not through the thick shiny, heat-protection layer.
Pre-heat your shirt for 2 seconds with your iron or heat press. Then, follow the vinyl manufacturer’s instructions on how to apply the vinyl. I used iron-on vinyl from knkusa.com, and because my heatpress machine is Celsius instead of Fahrenheit, I used 180C for 15 seconds and it worked great.
And because we also had to take a chair to the game, I decided to make some for it, too! LOL
To apply to a chair, follow the same procedure that you use for shirts, however, for this type of material, you can NEVER use the big regular heat press because it will melt your chair. I used the manual iron sold at knkusa.com (currently out of stock), and you have to be very careful with the pressure and the amount of heat applied so your chair does not melt.
But your final project will be amazing!!!
Finally, my inspiration to make this project: my handsome and my very special football player EVER, whom I LOVE so much. God Bless him!!!
