Silhouette Application Instructions


    Application Instructions

    • Lay out your design in the Silhouette Studio software.
    • Mirror the image so it appears backwards.
    • Without using a cutting mat,feed the heat transfer material into the Silhouette electronic cutting tool with the clear plastic sheet glossy side down.
    • Once the design is cut, trim your project to size and remove the negative-space materials. When you are done, only your original design should remain on the clear plastic sheet.
    • With the clear plastic sheet facing up, position the design onto the surface of your fabric project. The design should no longer appear reversed.
    • Place a cloth over the design and apply firm pressure with a heat iron for 45-60 seconds. For larger designs, repeat this process until the entire design is pressed. Important: Do not set the iron on more than 300°F (typical cotton setting).
    • Gently peel away the clear plastic sheet. If the heat transfer material continues to stick to the clear plastic sheet, replace the cloth and iron again.
