“Save the Racks” Tutorial

In honor of the annual Breast Cancer Walk in my home town, I decided to make a custom sweatshirt to wear and show off my pink proudly. I saw an idea similar to this from last year and wanted to try it myself this year.

What you’ll need:

• Happy Face Pattern Iron On Vinyl – Pink Camo

• Happy Face Glitter Iron On Vinyl – Tutu Pink Bling

• Silhouette Cameo® Vinyl Cutter

• Silhouette Software

• Standard Iron

• Sheet or Piece of Scrap Fabric

Project Time:

• 30 minutes

First, I found deer antlers, a Breast Cancer ribbon, and text, vectorized, and uploaded it to my Silhouette Software.

 

Always remember to mirror images before cutting..

Next, send your designs to your vinyl cutter. Be sure you have the right vinyl for the right cut job. I cut my pink camo vinyl first, then my tutu pink bling vinyl. Since my bling vinyl is thicker than my camo, I adjusted my cutting blade to a “3” instead of a “1” and it cut perfectly.

Finally, start ironing! You need to make sure your iron is or the hottest setting possible. The bling vinyl was being difficult because my iron was not hot enough. But with some more pressing time, it worked out perfectly!

 

Slowly pull off the carrier while it’s still warm and you’re finished!

 

My friends were in amazed at how cute it turned out and I may have converted them over to the craft side!
