Personalised Tote bag using Smooth Heat Transfer Vinyl

Hi! Bev here, with a project I completed as a gift for my mother in laws birthday.  She is an avid knitter and this seemed like the perfect gift to give her.  She loved it!

What you will need:
  • Silhouette Cameo® or Silhouette Portrait®
  • Silhouette Smooth Heat Transfer Vinyl
  • Tote or canvas bag
  • Hot iron or heat press
Step One

Open up a fresh page in your Silhouette Studio.  Import the image from your library and resize to fit your bag.  I added the word Grandma to personalise it slightly and resized this to fit in with the motif.  Flip it horizontally by right clicking and selecting flip horizontally.

Step Two

Ensure that the cut settings are corect for the media you are using and send to your Silhouette machine.  Once the vinyl has cut, weed it with a scraper tool or hook.
Place the HTV face down onto your bag and use a hot iron without steam, or a heat press to adhere the vinyl to the fabric.

And your bag is complete! a lovely gift for somebody or yourself.  I have enjoyed sharing with you and look forward to seeing what you create!
