First up I decided to try the Heat Transfer Vinyl. I haven’t tried vinyl transfers for many many years so it was fun to see how much it had changed from what I can remember.

I won’t lie, I got a little carried away with this and found my self searching for items to personalise or decorate…I love it!

I personalised some black pajamas, a beach bag, T-shirt, Make-up bag, Shopper Bag & Kids Hoodie!

I must say they all turned out great and it was very quick and easy to do.

I would say to do a couple practice runs first so you can see how your Iron or Heat Mat works with the vinyl. Make sure you have the steam off and protect any surfaces f your not using an ironing board.

The alphabet dies I used are from Stampin Up and the First Edition Ilama die is available here.

I guess I stuck safely as this was my first attempt and I didn’t want to waste any vinyl.

I love the Ilama I attached to a white T-Shirt above and my customised shopping bag below.

I was unsure if it would work on my make-up bag and the first go left the vinyl looking worn and almost melted, so I tried adding another layer and it works perfectly.

I think this is perfect for personalising gifts, for party decorations and so much more and a great way to use your dies.

Check out my full process video below.

I highly recommend this product, it’s good value for money, you get a good selection of colours and it’s easy to use with a standard Iron.

I don’t have anything bad to say about it as I have nothing to compare it against but It’s done everything I expected it to do. In terms of it lasting, well, I won’t know until I start using the items and start washing the garments more, but after one wash already the vinyl is stuck on strong.

I would love to see Arteza bring out some glitter vinyl as I know that would be very popular!.

I hope you have enjoyed this different kind of video from me today and give it a go.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Happy crafting.

  1. It is better sometimes to wash the garment first specially a flanelle material which might stretch or the opposite word sorry I can find the right word . I cut my design from My scan n cut Dx machine which is a beauty. You have all sots of vinyl on Aliexpress.overall you are very inspiring, well done.

  2. Hello Sam!
    Right, silly question coming up😂
    Can this only be used on fabric?
    I’ve seen really nice Christmas baubles with vinyl transfers and I was wondering if this could be used.
