"I see your true colors shining through…" with these rainbow pride patterns and SVG designs in our new Pride Bundle! In this blog, we will walk you through the steps to show your true colors using our Rainbow Ombre and Stripes Rainbow Pride pattern HTV.
Cut your vinyl using a vinyl cutter of your choice. Remember to NOT mirror the design in your design software as we are using patterned HTV. If you are using a Cricut cutter, you will want to attach your design together before cutting. For more tips on using a Cricut cutter and Cricut Design Space, check out this blog "How to Cut HTV on Cricut Using Cricut Design Space“.
Weed out the excess vinyl from your sheet. We will typically trim our sheet before weeding so we can save the scraps for future projects.
Once your design is weeded entirely, lay down the KTM transfer mask on top of the design. Use the “taco method”, which means folding the mask so that the middle touches down first, then slowly drop the edges down to ensure an even lay.
Use a Squeegee to push out any air bubbles on your design.
Flip over and peel the original liner off.
We chose to put our first design on a Bella+Canvas Cropped Hoodie, so we warmed up our heat press to 300 F and did a 5 second pre-press of our shirt to smooth out any wrinkles and remove moisture. Then we lined up the “Love is Love” design which was made using the Striped Rainbow Pride HTV. We pressed it for 5 seconds since it was our only layer. When the 5 seconds finished, we peeled the liner warm and the hoodie was finished!
We put our second design on a Port & Company T-shirt. First, we did a pre-press of our shirt at 300 F for 5 seconds to smooth out any wrinkles and remove moisture. Then we lined up the stacked pride design, which was made using the Rainbow Ombre HTV. We pressed it for 5 seconds since it was our only layer. When the 5 seconds finished, we peeled the liner warm and the shirt was finished!
