Let the fun begin!

Today marks the beginning of my favorite time of year, winter in Wisconsin.

Christmas is officially over so now it is time to clean and spend time doing things that I love. (I actually love cleaning too)

I have 2 grandchildren, 17 great nieces and nephews, and a handful of extra special little ones in my life. I can’t tell you how much joy it brings to me to be able to make them special gifts. 2 of my nieces live one house apart and each have 3 kids, a boy and 2 girls each, all close in age . The 2 youngest girls are best friends so I was asked to make them these shirts. The glitter heat transfer vinyl is so much fun to work with.

Materials

Glitter vinyl

Thermoflex Plus vinyl

Heat press

Settings

15″ KNK MAXX

Red capped blade

Force  50 for Thermoflex

90 for Glitter vinyl

Speed  450

I read somewhere that if you want vinyl to weed easy use multi cut and cut it with 2 passes. I tried it because the thermoflex is stretchy and it did make a difference.
