Heat Transfer Nerdy Robot Shirt




Hello Friends!! I am bringing you another fun shirt design today.  If you follow my blog at all you know my little guy is crazy about his robots! So I couldn’t let Valentine’s day go by without making him a robot shirt.

When working with different colors of  heat transfer, I like to visually see what it is going to look like.  This gives me an idea on how it will look like on my shirt.  To do this I simply use the fill in the Silhouette Studio and pick colors that are as close to the heat transfer  I have.

Once my heat transfer was cut I placed on my shirt and ironed.  It was such a simple project and now my little guy has another robot shirt to add to his collection!

  7. I am so glad you’ve joined the silhouette team. You are doing such fun apparel projects. I have only done HTV once and it didn’t go so well. I am thinking that I will try it for a valentine’s project after I go through all your posts.

    1. Awh! Thanks Torrie!! Oh do try HTV again! You will have to send me a pic of your valentine project! I would love to see it!

  8. So cute! I love all of the different colors you used!

    1. Thanks Amanda!

  9. I’m new to Heat transfer, did you usethe smooth or the flocked? What’s the difference?

    1. Hi Vanessa! I used the smooth heat transfer with this design. The flocked has a fuzzy almost velvet like texture to it. It gives some dimension when on the shirt.

  10. There is a way to print all the fonts together or need to be cut separetly?

    1. You can cut all the fonts together. I just did it separately because I ran out of black HTV. Fun fact. 🙂

  11. I’m itching to try to make this shirt, but I’ve never had any luck getting the smooth heat transfer to stay on the shirt. I have better experience with the flocked transfer for some reason.

    Any tips?

  12. I love this shirt! I can’t wait to try it out on my silhouette! Quick question though when you cut out words/letters using the heat transfer viynal, do they need to be mirrored? Or do you just cut out the words as it is and then iron it on? I hope that makes sense. I know the iron on letters you buy at the art store are reversed so the come on right way up when you iron them on.
