HTV on Burlap with Iron, EasyPress or Heat Press!

Wonder if you can put HTV on burlap? The answer is YES! 

It's so easy to put heat transfer vinyl on burlap with an iron, Cricut EasyPress or a heat press!  

We used the adorable Jolly Party Christmas font from the Christmas in July SVG & Fonts Bundle to type out a few Christmas words to decorate burlap ribbon. These are perfect for gift, wreaths and other decor! 

The font was first installed on the computer, the design software re-started, and the text was typed out! Just make sure you measure your piece of burlap so you know how to appropriately size your font or design.

To put HTV on burlap simply cut the heat transfer vinyl in reverse with your cutting machine - whether that's a Silhouette CAMEO, Cricut, or ScanNCut. 

Weed away the excess HTV and then trim down the carrier sheet. Place it directly on the burlap and cover with a teflon sheet. 

Now just apply heat and pressure. If you are applying HTV on burlap with an iron you'll want to make sure apply a lot of downward pressure. The goal is to try to see the grain of the burlap through the HTV - that's how you know you got good pressure and the HTV won't come off! 

A heat press will do the pressure work for you - but you can put htv on burlap with an Easypress or an Iron too as long as you focus on pressure. 

Remove the carrier sheet and you're done! Doesn't burlap with HTV look awesome? I love the rustic charm it always adds.
