Last Friday we had the pleasure of the girls from ‘Cut One Pair’ join us in the Happy Fabric HQ. Keep reading to see what they created with our Heat Transfer Vinyl.
The girls work together on their Instagram page where they create beautiful projects and show the world how to recreate it themselves. We absolutely love their style and love how they use happy fabric vinyl. When the girls asked if they could come and visit for the day we jumped at the chance of working with them. Just think, four creative brains in one room, the possibilities for amazing creative projects were out of control.
Jenny and Louise came up with three projects which they wanted to complete while at Happy Fabric. Louise is so talented when it comes to creating mood boards for upcoming projects. She sent these to me ahead of the visit so we could get everything in order for them.
The first project was a t-shirt to show how much they love the colour lilac. Both the girls are amazing at pattern cutting and had created their own t-shirt using lilac jersey fabric. They then wanted to add the slogan ‘Lilac Lovers Club’ cut out the wording for them which we cut on our silhouette cutter. We taught them how to layer the vinyl to create a shadowed effect on the t-shirt. The girls were so so pleased with the result. We think they look great. Who else wants to join the club, because we do!!!
The second project was a sweatshirt for a hashtag the girls like to use which is #onmondayswewearrainbows A little spin-off of the mean girls hashtag #onwednesdaywewearpink. The girls wanted to create a large rainbow which went across their backs and then with the slogan across the front. I suggested that maybe their rainbows should meet up in the middle to create a full rainbow, which they loved. We started by creating a pattern in paper so we could get the right shape of the rainbow. We then cut it in half and the girls began to cut out the different colour stripes in HappyFlex ready for layering up and fusing with the iron. I think you will agree, it was so so effective. We ordered Metre lengths of the vinyl so we were able to get a nice clean arch. Did you know our vinyl are available to order by the metre for all of your bigger projects? It actually saves you some pennies too!
The Slogan wording was cut in Black HappyFlex and a Variation of different coloured HappyGlitter. We used the silhouette cutter to get the wording perfectly cut. This saved so much time and made it look expertly finished.
Unfortunately, we ran out of time to do the final project as we were having so much fun! The girls wanted to make a flower power t-shirt, with loads of different layers of coloured vinyl all over the tee, I will pop their mood board on here so you can see their inspiration. It would be great to see your flower power tees!
We absolutely love having special guests in the happy fabric studio, we have so much fun. It’s a great way to see how our lovely crafter use our vinylin their own creative way.
