Tigger Printable Heat Transfer T-Shirt

Hello Guys! Today I’m sharing a new silhouette project using for the first time Printable Heat Transfer Material. I created this cute Tigger Printable heat transfer T-shirt for my little Girl and she loved it!

This project is easy enough to make. I mixed it with heat transfer vinyl to create the text and a fun touch. I have to be honest about the material. It’s my first time using this material so I might have done something wrong but as my experience using it goes, I didn’t like how it turned out once my girl used the t-shirt. The material cracked in many places, so my guess is that maybe it’s not for stretchy materials? Maybe on a tote bag or things that won’t stretch and crack the material.

Don’t get me wrong I LOVED that I could print that graphic and stamp it on my girl’s T-shirt, but then when she wore it it started to look like if it had been there for years. A lot to learn I guess. I’ll be trying other materials to see what’s the perfect one for this printable heat transfer.

Anyway this is how I made this t-shirt.

What you need:

  • White T-shirt
  • Printable Heat Transfer Material for light colors
  • Heat Transfer vinyl
  • Of course your silhouette and Iron

I started with the design. I Imported an .jpg file to my silhouette studio. Then just in case I duplicated the image and used the trace tool. In this case I set up the High pass filter to the full and modify the Threshold so the whole image would be covered in yellow. Then I hit trace outer edges.

That creates a red line around the design. I had the word Disney outside the main graphic so I created a rectangle, I placed it in a way that connected the graphic with the word and using the weld tool in Modify I created one cut shape.

Then since I didn’t want to risk cutting so close to the graphic, I used the offset tool. When you chose it, it sets another border bigger than the original. I just delete the first one and leave the bigger one.

Now I design the wording. In this case because of the expression of Tigger I wrote “Who?… Me?”. I set up the size and position where it will be and set it aside.

Ok here is where my saving side starts acting. I don’t like to waste material and once we print it will also print registering marks so there will be a waste. I decided to prepare and print some other stuff to use in the future.

Once ready I set up the page and registration marks. I placed everything so it would fit in the space and mirror it all.

Send to print.

Then I went to cut settings and chose Printable heat transfer material for light fabrics in the Material type options and left the blade settings as it directed.

I set up the wording and cut it too according to heat transfer vinyl instructions. If you want to know how to use Heat Transfer Vinyl you can check this post.

I pealed off the printable heat transfer that wasn’t part of my design and only left my graphics.

Now to the Iron.

I placed the graphic and the wording where I wanted them to be with the backing facing up. Placed a piece of clothes on top and Ironed on cotton setting for about 40 to 60 seconds. I left it to cool down a bit and pealed of the backing.

As I said, either something went wrong or this material is not appropriate for stretchy fabrics. But I’ll keep experimenting. My Girl loved it and use it. I’ll see what happens when I wash it!!!… I’ll of course let you know!
