Father’s Day is right around the corner & what better way to celebrate Dad than with a personalized shirt from all of his favorite littles! I’m Morgan and I used Kassa Heat Transfer Vinyl Sheets to create this adorable shirt! I used my SIlhouette Cameo machine & my Cricut EasyPress Mini, but you can recreate this project at home using any cutting machine and heat press - a plain old iron works too!

Materials you'll need: 

  • - Black Shirt
  • - Kassa Heat Transfer Vinyl Sheets (in the colors of your choice)
  • - Cutting Machine
  • - Heat Press (or Iron)
  • - SVG File
  • - Scissors

 

Step One

Choose your blank shirt, your vinyl colors & download/edit the SVG file. As with any personalized design, you’ll have to do a little editing to make it your own! (I used LW Perfect Poster font for this design FYI.) Any shirt will work - I went with this soft-washed shirt from Old Navy because it’s 60% Cotton & 40% Polyester, perfect for heat transfer projects.

Step 2

Cut out each part of the design in your preferred color - don’t forget to size the image to fit the shirt you chose! 

Step Three

Prep your shirt for heat! I love my Cricut EasyPress Mini for designs like this that are made up of a few different colors. It’s more precise than an iron & heats up more quickly. I used mine on the Medium heat setting for 300°F (150°C) – 355°F (180°C), started at the top of the design & worked down from there. Kassa HTV works best at a temperature of 305° F (150° C) - just apply medium pressure for 10-15 seconds and peel hot or cold! (I always peel hot - who can wait that long?!)

 

 

Step 4

You can either peel away the carrier sheet while the vinyl is still hot or wait for it to cool.
