A Silhouette Heat Transfer for The Graduate


Silhouette America is having yet another promotion this month!  They were kind enough to send me some of their awesome heat transfer material to get my craft on!  Since Marielle is graduating high school in two weeks, I figured I’d surprise her with a fun t-shirt.

A Quickie Silhouette Heat Transfer Tutorial


I opted for some Teal and Dark Pink Smooth Heat Transfer material.  Just open up your Silhouette Studio software (included with your Silhouette SD Electronic Cutting Machine).  Type up a saying using whatever font strikes your fancy.  Be sure to MIRROR IMAGE your saying, so it prints out correctly.


Next just weed away the negative space of the heat transfer material leaving your words or image attached to the clear transfer sheet.


Now take your image and place it on whatever material you choose.  I opted for a simple white t-shirt.  The clear transfer tape sticks to your material.


Now cover the image and clear transfer tape with a cloth or the provided matte paper to protect it.


Set your iron to the Cotton setting and press for approximately 45 to 60 seconds, so that the image adheres to your material.  This can be a little tricky.  I found I had to iron it quite a bit.  At first, I couldn’t get the image to release from the clear transfer tape.  I gave up and called it a night.


Early the next morning, once the image had cooled, I was able to easily remove the clear transfer tape. Sometimes you just need to have a little patience….LOL!


Marielle loved her new t-shirt!  It’s been a long, hard road for Marielle.  We are so proud of her!
