CAMPING WEEK! Camping is in Tents!

I am doing Camping week this week!
To kick it off, the perfect camping shirt!
 Camping is in Tents!
 Heat transfer vinyl is the easiest way to make custom shirts.
**I received this vinyl free of charge in exchange for this review**
This vinyl is from Firefly Craft and measures 12 by 20 inches
I got gray...but they have metallic gold and silver, pink, blue and green too!

You can cut it by hand, but I use a Silhouette Cameo...
This vinyl can be used on any cutting machine.
It's smooth and seals really well!
Here's the tent we used
Program in the text and image you want...
Flip the image (mirror left)
...then adjust cut settings and let it rip!
Cut the vinyl with the plastic face down.
 Once it's cut, weed out the excess vinyl.
This vinyl was so smooth and came out effortlessly.
 Weed out the insides of letters.
 Because we cut it out mirrored, it will look backwards.
 Flip it over, plastic side up and it's perfect!
 Lay it on a t-shirt on your ironing board...
 Place a tea towel over the top...don't judge, all my tea towels are totally stained!
 Iron over the top for a couple of minutes on high.
 Remove the tea towel,
Iron a little more right on the plastic...then peel up carefully
Re-iron as necessary.
 And it's a hit with the 6 year old!
