Bell bottoms, feathered bangs and flocked t-shirts — oh the 70s!
I’ve been working on a little throwback project using custom iron on transfers for a fun little pizza party with friends.
More on the pizza party later.

Use the Silhouette software to design your custom iron on transfer, just as you would for any project. But before cutting, make sure to mirror your image.
And when you load your heat transfer vinyl into the machine, make sure you load it shiny side down and adjust the blade and settings in the software accordingly.
Silhouette has a great online tutorial for using heat transfer vinyl. In my experience, I’ve found that heat and pressure are key to making the design stick to your fabric. And patience. An iron works, but I think a heat press would work even better.
I’ve made quite a few custom iron-on t-shirts over the years using my Silhouette Cameo. This one I made for Jackson several years ago during his dinosaur phase is one of my favorites.
When he saw the flocked aprons I made for the kids, my husband joked the he wanted a Disco Stu(d) shirt. Oh, it’s happening!
