Hi,

I want to create tee-shirts for my cheerleading team.

How do I go about cutting out letters for iron-on transfers with my cricut?

I have an original cricut machine.

Thanks!
Lisa

If you want just plain letters, you can cut the ink jet transfer paper and iron it on.

If you want a shiny or flocked look to the letters, you'll want to use heat transfer vinyl. Cut your letters and iron them on.

Or, you can use any cotton fabric, iron a stablizer onto it and cut it then iron onto the shirts.

Just remember when cutting letters for that purpose, you need to use the "flip" feature or your letters will be backwards on the t-shirts.

I read in the Cricut magazine to use Heat-n-Bond Ultra, just don't have your iron too hot or it won't stick. It works real good.

Well, it does depend on which product you use. For the transfer paper for dark shirts or the iron on vinyl/flocking or fabric, you don't have to flip the image. But, that depends on which side you put on the mat.

So always follow whatever the package instructions (yes, you have to read them BigGrin ) say to do.
