My sister introduced me to these Tailor brand printable iron-on transfer sheets, and I have to say I was extremely skeptical. I am a big proponent of Siser HTV (heat transfer vinyl) and have used it extensively for my iron-on projects. So when my sis informed me I could print any design I created on these Tailor sheets and iron them on with no weeding at all, that sounded too good to be true.
Well, I gave them a whirl, and she was not exaggerating. I have yet to wash my new project, but for how well it fused to the fabric and how easy the process was from start to finish, I give it a 10/10. Here are the steps to use this product for your own project (then keep scrolling for your free SVG to try this project out for yourself!)
- Create your design in Canva and download it as a PNG with a transparent background.
- Upload your PNG to Cricut Design Space.
- Make sure your image is crystal clear
- Save your image as a print and cut image and name your file
- Measure your shirt (or onesie in my case!)
- Create a new design in Cricut Design Space and click “upload”. Select the image you just uploaded into Cricut Design Space
- Select “edit” and adjust the width of your design to match whatever you measured on your shirt
- Click next and print your design on your printer. Insert the Tailor transfer sheet into your printer so that the sheet prints on the NON-glossy side. In the case of my printer, that meant loading my transfer sheet glossy side up.
- Once your design is printed, click “make it” and be sure your Cricut is set to the iron-on setting.
- Note: Cricut Design Space will prompt you to mirror your image. Don’t do this for this project!
- Cricut will cut the image out – for the free SVG below, each character head will cut out individually!
- Peel your Cricut mat away from your transfer sheet to avoid creating a curl or bend in your transfer paper
- Peel each character head off the attached backing. The iron on material will feel very thin.
- Arrange your images on your shirt at your own desired spacing
- Place parchment paper on top of your design
- Iron design onto your shirt with your Cricut Easy Press (or other heat press) set to 340F and for 30 seconds. Apply medium pressure.
- Peel away the parchment paper and flip your shirt to the back
- Press again at same temperature and timing with your heat press to ensure everything sticks really well!
- Enjoy your new project! Now go download your free SVG and do this awesome project with me!
