5) Trim any excess vinyl and then weed your layers.

6) Preheat the baby outfit for 3-5 seconds to remove any moisture or wrinkles from the fabric, then place the first layer of your design on the outfit. We don’t want the registration marks to adhere to the outfit, so place scrap carrier sheets underneath the registration marks.

7) Apply heat/medium pressure for 2 seconds.

8) Remove the carrier sheet and use the first layer’s registration marks to align your next layer – then repeat the above step to apply the next layer to the fabric.

9) Repeat the above step for the final layer, but press for 15 seconds. Then flip the outfit over and press the back for 15 seconds.

Do not wash the clothing for at least 48 hours to make sure the vinyl has adhered properly. Give it away as a Valentine’s Day Gift , or as birthday present to a mommy. Happy Valentine’s Crafting!
