I received this adorable free bag with a purchase, and at first did not have a clue what to do with it. It is a synthetic leather, so I had some concerns. I looked up the instructions for the KNK heat transfer vinyl and found that ThermoFlex Extra works with heat sensitive materials.
Free Pink Bag
I needed a bag to carry my dog supplies when we traveled to a meeting or a show. This is a nice roomy bag and would work well for carrying blankets as well as their water and food bowls.
I used a combination of old designs to create a personalized bag.
Decorated pink bag
I had so much fun with it, I found another bag on clearance and decorated it to carry their brushes, paperwork and treats.
This bag has soft leather trim. I put a textbook inside it to iron the sections between the trim, then ironed the lettering onto the trim.
My daughter wanted a special T-Shirt for a sorority event – they are very involved with several charities throughout the year. She found a picture online and asked me to whip one up! Ha ha ha, I said. But I did it anyway. And since I was working on vinyl and getting the heat press all warmed up, I also made a T for me. I was absolutely amazed at how tiny I could get the letters to cut.
This heat transfer vinyl is SPECTACULAR! I could use it on everything! What is it? It’s Deco Film Paint Fx and it is truly gorgeous. Now, don’t get me wrong – I love GlitterFlex II and GlitterFlex Ultra, because I LOVE sparkle. My sister, on the other hand, is not one for the flashy look of rhinestones or glitter. But when she asked me to make some T-shirts for her new business, I wanted to make the logo stand out somehow and Deco Film Paint Fx filled the need with it’s subtle and elegant appearance!
I selected a font and created the poodle image from a photo of our dog, Simon. For the front of the T-shirts I created a 2″ x 4″ left breast logo and for the hoodie I created a 6″ x 9″ version of the logo to go in the center.
This is a series of photos so that you can see the car-like shine of this vinyl. What you can’t see is how soft and flexible this vinyl is – you can’t even tell it has been ironed on when you’re wearing it!
I cut the logo using my Maxx Air 24″ and applied the vinyl with my 15″ heat press using the settings above. After waiting for it to cool, I peeled off the carrier sheet and instantly fell in love with this vinyl.
And here is the small logo – don’t you love how vinyl can be cut to the most intricate designs?
Without using the flash, the color has more contrast and looks much bolder!
My DH and I aren’t overly affectionate or demonstrative, especially in public. But I always know how he feels ~ and when he’s trying to figure me out he gets it right most half of the time. And I also know that sometimes he likes me to subtly tell the (whole) world that I love him. So, this project is for you, dearest husband (and a little for me, since I love my glitz! nearly as much as I love you [giggle]).
Heat Press or Iron – 300 degrees Fahrenheit or Cotton setting
Method: 1. I used Make-the-Cut to create my file. I was concerned about cutting the very fine lettering so I made the text on the ‘front’ design thicker with a light shadow layer, and then deleted the original.
However, on the ‘back’ design, I did a little more work. After selecting my font and creating the text, I decided to weld the 2 and the 5 together. Then I gave the text a shadow layer that was slightly thicker than 1/2 the size of my 10SS rhinestones. I used the shadow layer to create the outline of stones (versus fill), then deleted the shadow layer.
Next, I added a couple of circles to the design and adjusted the position of a few other circles – just to smooth the lines out.
2. Cut the template material. Brush in the stones and use rhinestone transfer tape to pick up the designs. (Click here for more detailed rhinestone instructions) Set aside. 3. Reverse (mirror) the text and cut the iron-on vinyl. Test cut, Test cut, Test cut! I can’t tell you how many times I had to test cut the metal flake. It was my first time using this material, and I started with normal iron-on vinyl settings. BUT… I found it was a lot tougher than your everyday iron-on and it needed a lot more force! And then, when I cut the holographic vinyl – wow that required even more force. I saved myself a lot of aggravation and wasted material throughout this project by testing cutting each material until I got a perfect cut. And what a stunning result! 4. Apply the vinyl – 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 seconds. For the Silver Metal Flake and the Deco Sparkle, wait for the material to cool before peeling off the transfer layer. Using a teflon sheet, I applied heat again for about 5-8 seconds. 5. Apply the rhinestones – 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 seconds. Peel off the transfer paper. 6. Stand in the sun and shine (or is it sparkle?)! All I know is its lovely bling!
Ta – da! Here it is outside (on me, not a hanger), near dusk but with the sun coming from the horizon. It literally put sparkles all over my face and the ground when the sun hit it! The sunrise rhinestone pattern on the front of the T-shirt could be used for an accent on any project. Please download the entire file for free here for a limited time. Thanks, and Enjoy! Michele
