How to Make Put Heat Transfer Vinyl on Felt with EasyPress or Iron

Did you know you can put HTV on felt with EasyPress!

Adding heat transfer vinyl on felt opens up a bunch of project possibilities since felt is more structured than fabric!  Think felt bows with HTV or even no-sew felt patches.

Start in Silhouette Studio by opening the SVG design you want to use. 

I'm using this cool Santa SVG from the Funny Christmas SVG Bundle on So Fontsy

Silhouette SVG, Cricut SVG, Silhouette fonts, Commercial use SVG, Silhouette cut files

Since you’re cutting the design in HTV, don’t forget to mirror it.

This design will be cut in HTV, so separate the pieces on the virtual cutting mat.

Place the HTV pieces on your cutting mat so they cover the same gridded areas as where they are in the software.

Use the Autoblade to cut out the HTV and then weed away the excess HTV.

Grab your piece of felt. We used the Silhouette Rotary blade to cut this simple felt circle since we're making a felt patch.

Warm up your Cricut Easy Press Mini or iron.

Press the HTV onto the felt shape layer by layer.  For a project like this, you really only need to use enough heat and pressing time for the HTV to stick. 

You may want to cover the felt with a piece of parchment paper to protect it from coming in direct contact with the iron.

Then, peel off the HTV's carrier sheet.

Repeat pressing with any other colors of HTV. Remember to cover the HTV with parchment before pressing so it does not come in direct contact with the iron.

You could use a glue gun to glue a pin on the back or use some fuse-able material to make patches.
