Tips to layer multiple colors of Iron-on vinyl

Discover simple but very useful tips on how to layer several colors of vinyl by using this cute SVG cut file of a Valentine’s Day gnome.

I admit I am not the most experienced person when it comes to Iron-on or HTV. I made a lot of stuff with my Cricut, but I didn’t really feel the need to try applying vinyl to fabric.

I was wondering why people were doing this.

I have teens, they are not very motivated in having vinyl on their t-shirts.

It was like that for me until I planned a Disney trip.

No, I didn’t make matching t-shirts for the family! I rather had fun making funny and original t-shirts like this one that I made for my husband who’s a Pokemon fan. (You should see him taking pictures with this shirt and ALL the princesses he could find!🤣)

A gnome for Valentine’s day

Now I have to hold back when I see beautiful files and slow down my brain that can’t stop finding things I could do with them !!!

And this is exactly what happened with this Valentine gnomes SVG file that I showed you on my Facebook group.

I just fell in love!

So I decided to take one of the gnomes in the file to make a pyjama t-shirt. Eh hum… MY pyjama! (we really need to make more things for ourselves don’t you think?!)
