I love silly sayings to tease dads! This oven mitt was at the dollar store and I grabbed some white vinyl heat transfer from Expressions Vinyl. I made the saying in Cricut Design Space on my iPad using the Southwest cartridge font. Of course who doesn’t love this saying, ‘I’m too hot to handle’!
Make sure your reverse your image so that the words come out right. Load your mat and VHT into the machine and use the Iron-On setting on your Cricut’s smart dial, then press the C to cut.
Peel the backing off you VHT so the positive of the image is showing. Whatever is stuck on the film will be ironed on to your material. Use a dry iron and on medium heat, place the iron on the backing and move back and forth for about 30 seconds. Once it’s stuck, gently peel off the backing. Then take your iron again and gently go back over the design to secure it. On my mitt, there was stitching so I went over those areas good so I had no lifting.
Once your mitt is done, wrap it up and let the laughs come!
