Embroidery and HappyFabric HTV

Our wonderful customers have been experimenting with their HappyFabric vinyl and embroidery- and we are seriously impressed! Our Heat Transfer Vinyl is ironed or pressed onto the fabric, and can then be embroidered into to create stunning designs. Whether it's for a garment or just decoration, this trend is seriously cool.
