Heat Transfer Nerdy Robot Shirt

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.

  13. Have you ever considered publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other
    sites? I have a blog based upon on the same information you discuss
    and would really like to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my audience would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
