Jessie Walrath

Had fun using Infusible Ink scraps and leftover transfer paper to make an adorable cat and dog mug.

Megan Riedinger

Layered Iron-On (HTV) scraps to create a colorful “Be Kind” shirt.

Here are few tips Megan shared to help ensure your project comes out perfectly:

  • Line the scraps up onto a StrongGrip Mat
  • Don’t overlap the scraps; just place them super close together
  • Cut the design using the iron-on setting
  • Weed the design while it’s still on the mat as it helps hold down the individual pieces and allows you to better see the overall design
  • Center the weeded strips of vinyl onto the shirt one at a time
  • Lay a scrap carrier sheet over all the strips to protect from heat and to make sure they don’t shift while pressing

Raquel Betancur

Completed this fall project using only scrap iron-on (HTV), permanent vinyl, chipboard, and paint.
