Hi everyone, it’s Hayley with a new project to add a bit of sparkle to your home! Perfect for valentines but also for all year round to add a little bit of love to your home. These can be added in any of our heat transfer vinyl colours so you can create a neutral colour cushion or a bright colour pop!
What you will need:
- HappyFlex black vinyl
- HappyGlitter silver vinyl
- Cushion cover
- Iron (on the 2 dot setting/ 150 degrees)
- Greaseproof paper
Firstly I created an arrow template, which I used to draw around to get the same arrow shape. I drew 15 arrows on the back of the black flex vinyl and 15 on the back of the silver glitter vinyl.
Tip: Make sure you cut all the pen marks off to avoid the pen transferring to the fabric.
I then pressed the cushion with an iron to create a smooth surface and to take the moisture out of the fabric. Now the first black arrow can be placed onto the cushion where you would like it.
Tip: I started from the corner first and worked my way across.
Put greaseproof paper on top and press with the iron for 10 seconds - try to avoid moving the iron up and down. The plastic carrier topping can then be peeled away while warm.
Tip: Carefully pull away the plastic carrier.
Add the glitter vinyl arrow on top of the black arrow in a staggered position. Then add greaseproof paper and press this again with an iron for 10 seconds. Then peel off the plastic carrier while hot.
Press all the other black arrows in place and then the glitter arrows.
Yay your cushion is finished! Add this to a stack of comfy cushions for a LOVE-ly touch to your home.
