This hand-lettered St. Patrick’s Day cut file is such a perfect file to use with heat transfer vinyl!

I received the February 2022 Mystery Box from Expressions Vinyl, full of both heat transfer vinyl and adhesive vinyl. If you want to reuse a shirt, you can use adhesive vinyl on a shirt and it’ll stick for a day. But if you want a permanent design on your shirt, you should use heat transfer vinyl!

What type of heat transfer vinyl depends on who you’re making the shirt for. Anytime I am making shirts for adults I like using stretch vinyl, because the vinyl has a little give to it and can stretch over the chest area. For kids shirts I typically use Siser Easyweed heat transfer vinyl because they don’t need the stretch that adults typically do! Plus, it’s easy to weed and I love that about it.

    COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW TO USE FREE CUT FILES WITH YOUR CUTTING MACHINES

    Where can you find free cut files to use with the Silhouette Cameo or Cricut machines?

    Free files are the best things to use when you’re first getting started with your machine! My favorite place to find files for certain fandoms are on Facebook (Accio Cameo is my favorite group!) but you can find free files anywhere online, you can use Google to search for them.

    Our favorite places to find free files are:

    • Facebook – there are so many groups on there for all types of files and fandoms!
    • Creative Fabrica – they always have fun freebies to download!
    • Other Crafters – scroll down to the bottom of this post for 21 free St. Patrick’s Day svg’s!

    How do you open a free file in the Silhouette Software?

    First you’ll need to download the file to your computer.

    Next you’ll need to drag your preferred file type (I use SVG with the Silhouette Design Studio) into the software.

    You can also hit FILE > OPEN and then click on the file you want.

    This video shows you how to drag an SVG cut file into the Silhouette Software Business Edition.

    What can I use free files on?

    You really should read the fine print on any files that you download because each creator has specific things you can and cannot do with your files.

    Typically free files are for personal use only and you cannot alter, distribute or claim as your own. The best rule to follow is to not sell any free files you use on projects for a profit.

    You can use free files on any type of project you like – tea towels, onesies, shirts, wood signs and more!

    FAQ’S ABOUT USING HEAT TRANSFER VINYL ON SHIRTS

    What type of heat transfer vinyl should you use on shirts?

    I love Siser Easyweed Heat Transfer Vinyl for shirts. Stretch HTV is also good because it’ll stretch with the shirt without weakening the adhesive.

    How do you make sure your design is in the center of the shirt?

    I learned a while ago to fold my t-shirts in half (sleeve to sleeve) and use my heat press to press the crease.

    You can see how we used this trick for this Valentine’s Day shirt!

    You can also fold your vinyl in half (make sure the sticky sides are facing out) to find the center of your vinyl design.

    How long do you press each layer for a multi-colored design?

    With the CraftPro Heat Press I heated it up to 315 and pressed each layer for 10 seconds.

    It’s a bit of trial and error depending on what type of heat press you’re using. The best thing to do is to try to press for 5 seconds and then see if your vinyl has adhered to your shirt by lifting up the transfer sheet. If your vinyl design comes up with the transfer sheet then you need to press for a little bit longer. Keep doing this until you find the amount of time that works for you!

    Once you have every layer adhered onto your shirt, do one final press for the full amount of time (mine was 20 seconds).
