how to print baby bibs and burp cloths

THE MAKING AND PRINTING OF BABY BIBS AND BURP CLOTHS

Making bibs for a baby is really not that difficult. It’s fun to do and you don’t need that much material. Just a few steps, and you have great and fun bibs or burp cloths!

Self-made bibs are a very original baby gift. I’m also going to teach you how to personalize them with a glitter application and / or flocked HTV. How nice would it be if you could give at a baby shower, something you made yourself as a gift? Immediate respect from everyone!

What are we going to need?

CHECKERED PATTERN PAPER

The easy way is to draw a pattern on checkered pattern paper. This is patterned paper that is printed with squares of 4 by 4 cm. We need a piece of pattern paper 20 cm wide and 25 cm long. Pattern paper is sold per packet of 4 or 5 sheets or per roll of 4 or 5m. The prices vary from around € 2 to €6. If you go to a fabric show, don’t forget to bring one. They are sold there very cheaply.

BIAIS TAPE AND SEWING THREAD

In addition, we also need 1.5 m bias tape to finish and tie of the bib. You can make bias tape yourself, but to make this bib, I will use ready-to-use bias tape.

With bias binding you can hem off or decorate items. It is cut on the bias so that it can stretch and it is easier to trim round seams. Bias tape is a strip of fabric folded in three: a wider center piece with two flaps folded inwards. It is used to finish rough edges, edges of quilts, place mats and bibs, around the edges of the armholes and the neck instead of a siege and as a simple bow or handles for casual bags.

Biais tape can be used in such a way that it is (virtually) invisible from the outside; it can also be used decoratively in a visible edge. The advantage of bordering with bias tape is that you do not need to trim a seam allowance and you therefore have virtually no loss of fabric when making a hem.

Of course we also need sewing thread in a matching color.

FABRIC

In terms of fabric, cotton and waffle cotton is a popular choice. Flannel is also possible, this is a slightly lighter fabric. Bamboo jersey is also an excellent choice to make a baby bib. Bamboo jersey has a number of unique properties: it is anti-bacterial, highly absorbent and ultra soft. We only need a small piece (min. 20 x 25 cm). So maybe you have a surplus that you could use.

SCISSORS and PINS

  • paper scissors
  • fabric scissors
  • pins

EQUIPMENT

  • iron (for the application with the transfer tapel)
  • sewing machine (for the other applications)

METHOD FOR A STRAIGHT BIB

  • Choose a pattern and pin it on your chosen fabric
  • cut out the pattern without seam allowance
  • trim the outside edge with bias tape
  • afterwards you can border the neck edge with the other bias and leave approximately 20 to 25 cm sticking out at each end to tie the bib
  • then all you have to do is close the tie around the folding edge

METHOD FOR A ROUND BIB

  • choose a pattern and pin it on your chosen fabric
  • cut out the pattern without seam allowance
    trim the edges with bias tape
  • finish the ends with a piece of velcro

PERSONALIZE AND PRINT

Baby bibs are very grateful to make something fun out of it. There are several things you can do.

WORKING WITH A READY-TO USE APPLIQUE

You can buy ready-to-use applications and sew-on or stitch-on. For this you use a small zigzag stitch on your machine.

On the right a photo of a bib where I have stitched on a purchased applique and matching bias tape.

MAKE AN APPLIQUE YOURSELF

Of course you can also make a nice drawing yourself and apply it. Vliesofix is very useful for this.

Vliesofix can be purchased per sheet or per meter in the fabric store. It is a double-sided type of adhesive paper for fabric applications. When ironing it on a fabric, it will stick permanently and that makes it a lot easier than sewing. You can fix applications with Vliesofix on fabric. It is double-sided, so that one side sticks to the application, you remove the paper and the other side irons onto the bib.

Beware. Vliesofix is not the same as vlieseline. The difference is that fleece line is single-sided and is used, for example, to reinforce clothing in certain places (such as collar or waistband). Vlieseline is actually a brand name for an inner lining or fleece that is ironed or sewn onto textile. The brand name has become so well known that it is generally used for all types of textile reinforcement or lining.

You could also stick a self-made applique to the bib with textile glue. But this does not give such a nice and smooth result.

What is also possible is to work with scraps of fabric. On the image on the right, I have made a bag at the bottom of a bib using a piece of fabric. I flipped the edge of the bag and then secured it with the overlock which also gives a nice added value to the bag. Moreover, I cut a heart out of the same fabric and stitched this simple homemade application with the sewing machine on to the bib.

APPLICATIONS WITH FLOCKED HTV (OR flocked velvet)

In my opinion, you make the most beautiful appliques by using flocked HTV (flocked heat transfer vinyl) and / or glitter HTV.

ADVANTAGES OF FLOCKED HTV

feels soft and velvety
it also has a somewhat increased dimensional effect
is a great inexpensive alternative to embroidery

RECOMMENDED TEXTILES

  • 100% cotton
  • 100% polyester
  • all cotton polyester blends
  • lycra or spandex

You can buy sheets of flocked HTV and glitter HTV in the store. You can cut an image yourself or with a cutting machine such as a Silhouette Cameo or Cricut. In the video below I show you how to print a bib with flocked HTV by using an iron.

I have drawn a simple flower in Adobe Illustrator that you can download below for free. You can print it with a Cameo or Cricut cutter. I cut out the petals of the flower in red flocked heat transfer vinyl and the heart of the flower in white glitter HTV. Of course you choose your own colors that are in line with the bias tape that you have stitched. In the video I show how to apply this ironing applque to a selfmade bib.

Bling ideas for clothes

Do you know that feeling: you want to make something special, that is not too much work but is great looking to show to everyone? Can you guess what I’m going to suggest? Need an extra tip? It looks a bit like diamond painting but gives much quicker results and you can use to shine … Yes, I’m going to help you with some bling ideas for clothes and other items.

How do you feel about pimping your wardrobe with rhinestones? Maybe you have a piece of clothing that looks pretty ordinary and that is why you no longer wear it. Perhaps your jeans, sneakers or pumps would look much nicer if rhinestones were applied to them.

In this blog post I will show you different bling ideas for clothes and a couple of ways to get started quickly to”bedazzle” (nice word, not?) shoes and clothing

CREATIVE BLING IDEAS WITH RHINESTONES: WHAT DO YOU NEED?

You probably already have a lot of creative ideas in mind, don’t you? To help you get started I have put together a hotfix craft ideas package that you can make yourself. This includes a hotfix applicator, rhinestones, a few patterns, erasable textile marker and transfer tape. A hotfix applicator is used to attach rhinestones to various materials. This do-it-yourself hotfix tool can create beautiful patterns, shapes and even lettering for your items, including clothing, purses, cell phones, belts, dolls, scrapbooks, shoes and accessories. With this set you can easily and quickly get started to bedazzle clothes or make something nice for yourself. Why not make a personalized gift for friends or family. You can also download patterns on the site, such as this skull pattern or angel wings.

Rhinestones, or also called hotfix stones, are made of lead crystal glass that has been machined and polished for a high-quality finish. There is a layer of heat-sensitive glue on the back of the stones. This glue needs about 5 to 20 seconds to heat up and attach itself to a surface. However, to fully cure, you should count on 24 hours.

To achieve successful strong adhesion, the material must be able to absorb the adhesive when it is melted. Materials such as paper, card, wool, cotton, linen, viscose, tulle, denim, lycra, cotton jersey, silk, synthetic fabrics (polyester, etc.) and artificial fur are all suitable for applying hotfix stones. Less absorbent materials such as glass, plastic, smooth leather and fabrics with a wax coating are not suitable for absorbing the hotfix glue and therefore not for applying rhinestones.

A simple test to find out if a material is absorbent, is the water drop test. If you pour a little water over the surface and the water runs off the surface and is not absorbed into the material, it is not suitable for use with rhinestones. If the material in question contains a large amount of fabric softener, it may be necessary to wash before applying hotfix stones with a hotfix applicator or through other heat sources, such as an iron or heat press.

How cool is it to be able to make your own bling shirts. If you don’t feel confident enough applying it to your best dress at first, than practice first on an old jeans or something like that.

QUICK START GUIDE TO WORK WITH A HOTFIX APPLICATOR

  1. If it is the first time you use a hotfix applicator to work out your creative ideas with rhinestones, it is a good idea to first test it out on a piece of cardboard or residual material.
  2. It’s best to work on a solid surface, such as a table or work surface. Ironing boards are not suitable because they offer insufficient support.
  3. If you apply hotfix stones on fabric, make sure that the fabric is smooth. This means, it’s propably best to first iron your fabric.
  4. Draw a pattern on your chosen item with the erasable textile marker
  5. Important : when applying the rhinestones to thin and delicate fabric, place a piece of cardboard or baking paper between the layers of fabric to prevent the glue from seeping through and bonding all layers of fabric together.
  6. Before you switch on the device, choose the correct size of applicator tip for the rhinestone size that you are going to work with. You can find the sizes in the side of such a tip. The sizes are etched into it. You must have good eyes … or a magnifying glass can also help, of course. If you are not sure what the required size is, place the tip over the rhinestone. The right applicator tip, picks up the rhinestone. The tip of the applicator fits on the end of the hotfix applicator. Carefully screw in the applicator tip of the correct size.
  7. Pre-heat the Hotfix applicator for 2-3 minutes
  8. Place the stones on the fabric with the flat side down on the fabric
  9. Press the applicator on the stones and wait 5-8 seconds
  10. Place the applicator on the support stand to prevent things from being burned on the table
  11. Wait at least 5 minutes to change your hotfix tip
  12. Wait at least 24 hours to wash

CREATIVE bling IDEAS WITH RHINESTONES, A CUT OUT DRAWING, ERASABLE TEXTILE MARKER AND HOTFIX APPLICATOR

Compose yourself a package with various sizes of cut out stars in cardboard. Place the star on your shirt, sneaker or mobile phone case, and draw the shape of the star with the erasable textile marker. Afterwards you can use the hotfix applicator to apply the chosen stones to the lines that you have just drawn. The lines of the erasable marker disappear automatically. In the video below I applied my creative ideas to some of my sneakers.

CREATIVE IDEAS WITH RHINESTONES, TEMPLATES AND TRANSFER TAPE

Below I give you a step-by-step guide for elaborating ideas with a dotted pattern. You can print the explanation below and put it next to you or just watch the videos in which I go through the different steps.

STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO WORK WITH TEMPLATES

Cut a piece of transfer foil about 3 cm larger in all 4 directions than the image will be (do not remove the background paper before cutting)

After the paper has been cut to the appropriate size, the back of the transfer paper (= the white back panel) may be removed. Keep this in a safe place and do not throw it away!

Attach this translucent transfer paper (with its sticky side up) to the corners with small pieces of tape on the work surface. This only serves that the whole can not shift during the laying of the stones. Also do not stick too tight, because then you may experience problems removing the transfer. Just lock the corners gently.

Place the hotfix rhinestones using tweezers or even easier with the supplied pickup pencil on the tape exactly where you want them. If the stone is not immediately put on the right spot, you can remove it and resubmit it as often as necessary to obtain the desired result.

The rhinestones are laid with their beautiful side down on the transfer foil

Arrange the glitter stones on the pattern.

When you are done, carefully remove the tape from the corners of the transfer tape and place the paper back (glossy side) back on the transfer tape. Make sure the stones do not move.

If you turn over your new transfer now, with the right side up, you see the end result. If this is what you are looking for, you are done with this transfer. If not, you can make changes at this time.

Once the transfer has been made, it can be applied to any fabric with an iron. Remove the back of the transfer, place the transfer on the garment exactly where you want it. (you will not get a second chance once heat has been applied, so take your time and place well). At this stage you can still reposition the transfer.

Afterwards we apply heat, to make the stones stick to the fabric and then you can not move them anymore.

After the adhesive has been applied, it can be washed in the machine, but is not recommended for dry cleaning because some of the chemicals used can denature the adhesive, causing it to discolor and become brittle or dissolve. Turn the fabric inside out and wash at no more than 30 ° C. Hang to dry.

I applied this rhinestone pattern to the back pocket of my jeans. This time I worked with Crystal colored rhinestones.

As you can see, it doesn’t have to be that difficult to get started. I hope i have I inspired you. And if I did please give me a like or if you have any question, don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

How to use HTV on canvas, wood, leather, terry cloth or polyester

In the beginning that I got to know HTV, I thought this was only something for clothing, but I was clearly wrong. You can apply heat transfer vinyl to so much more than just fabric. Let’s look at that together. I started to figure out how to use HTV on canvas, wood, polyester, leather and even on a towel. If you read this blog post all the way through, then at the end I have 10 extra tips for you on how to apply HTV on top of each other.

If you are not yet completely familiar with what HTV is, what types there are and what you should pay attention to when you buy, then it’s best to first read the blog post on What is HTV? 

HTV ON WOOD

If you want to print a text on a wooden surface, HTV is certainly worth considering. You don’t have to mess with transfer tape, because heat transfer vinyl is already on a carrier. You can transfer the text to wood by simply ironing the HTV text onto the wood. It adheres wonderfully. I also like that HTV is less shiny than regular vinyl and it also looks more natural when there are grooves in the wood. That way, it looks like a hand-painted wooden wall decoration with text. Or why not make these nice little blocks like smileys 😉

WHICH WOOD TO USE FOR PRINTING HTV?

You can create stunning creative pieces of art by pressing HTV on wood. The best wood on which you can apply heat transfer vinyl is (balsa) plywood, pine, scaffolding wood or ayous wood.

Balsa wood is versatile, environmentally friendly and very light. Ideal for plates and accessories and even small furniture!

It seems that if you try to carry out a project on very smooth wood, it is best to first treat the surface with water-based stain, paint or parquet lacquer to give the vinyl a hold.

For a more permanent solution, it is recommended to spray a protective epoxy or polycrylic topcoat to ensure that your vinly sticks well to the wood.

The steps to apply HTV to wood are the same as for any other materials. 

How to use HTV on canvas

TEXT ON CANVAS

Just as you can transfer text onto wood, you can also print your own text on canvas with HTV. I will explain below how this works. More information and useful tips I have bundled for you. you will find in a separate blog post more about HTV cutting, peeling and pressing. Certainly worth checking out. It’s going to make your life so much easier.

An important difference between printing on canvas and an item of clothing is filling up the back of the canvas so it get’s enough support. This must be filled, otherwise we cannot give enough pressure to press. There are special Teflon pillows, but you can also fold a towel or a t-shirt to fill that empty space.

STEP-BY-STEP HOW TO USE HTV ON CANVAS

  • Before applying your design to the canvas, mark the center with a pencil. Also determine the center of your design by folding it in 2 with the non-sticky sides facing each other.
  • Cut a piece of baking paper and heat your iron to the warmest setting.
  • Position your design on the canvas, put the baking paper over it and give it a firm pressure for 20 to 30 seconds.
  • Give the backing a few moments to cool down and then remove it.
  • Repeat this process for each color.
  • Applying HTV to a canvas is very fun to do and you can also make a very original gift for someone special. The prettiest htv to print on canvas, I think is the glitter foil. In the photo above, I used a nice quote from Libelle.

HTV ON LEATHER

Did you know that you could also press HTV on leather? Really! This technique is a nice way to personalize leather gifts, such as a wallet, leather writing folder, iphone or ipad cover or bag. If you would like to print such a nice gadget yourself, then certainly read on. I will tell you everything you need to know to use HTV on leather.

What you will need :
  • heat transfer vinyl
  • Iron
  • weeding tool
  • Silhouette Cameo, Cricut or other cutter
  • Protective coversheet or baking paper
  • Your own design or use one of mine for free (not for commercial use)

STEP-BY-STEP HOW TO USE HTV ON LEATHER

  • First create your design with the software (in my blog post and video “I explain in more detail) 
  • Then you mirror your design
  • Cut your design with the cutter
  • Then peel the design by using the weeding tool
  • Once your work has been peeled, position it with the adhesive side down. This way your drawing is again with the good side up
  • Use your iron on the cotton setting and switch off the steam (it is best to use an iron without steam as water can stain and damage the leather surface)
  • Take your ironing cloth or baking paper to lay on your design and press it for 10-15 seconds (be careful not to move and only move)
  • Now pull the translucent side of the foil and you’re done!

HTV ON TERRY CLOTH OR TOWEL

One of my salsa friends asked me to press a text and names in HTV on a towel with clip. This way everyone had their own personalized towel they could use while going dancing…

The most important thing here is that the towel must be made of 100% cotton and that we use HTV where we can apply a low temperature and which nevertheless adheres well.

The process of applying HTV to a towel or terry cloth is similar to that of other items. I made sure that I first pressed a little beforehand so that moisture and creases were removed. Then I applied my design and printed it at 160 ° C. for 15 to 20 seconds. This HTV is a warm peel. So the backing becomes removable while it’s still warm.

HTV ON POLYESTER

When it comes to polyester printing, there are apparently a number of things that we have to take into account. This fabric seems less suitable for printing than, for example, cotton. It is easier to press a cotton shirt with HTV than, for example, to print a polyester shirt. But I certainly did not let myself be intimidated and so I tried to apply this film to polyester. These are my findings.

Tips regarding temperature:

You want to apply HTV, so you need heat to make the glue on the HTV adhere to the fabric. The problem with this, however, is that some more delicate fabrics are sensitive to high temperatures. Your fabric can get burned and even melt. So my advice here is to use a heat press if possible. You can control the temperature better with a heat press. Because to print polyester, your temperature must not be too hot. At least less than 150 ° C. If you have a label in a garment, follow the information on the label. Not all polyester is equally sensitive, but of course you don’t want to take any risks, so try testing. If you want to print multiple polyester shirts with HTV, consider using one as a test. Or see if it is possible to obtain a sample of the fabric and then start with the lowest possible temperature (135 ° C) and press a small piece of the fabric. If it does not burn, set the temperature 5° C higher and try again to see what temperature you can use before it scorches.

Tips regarding pressure:

The pressure you give during a press is also important. You need heat and pressure to make HTV adhere correctly.

If you work with a lower temperature, you must increase the pressing time.

But too much of either can damage your fabric. So also experiment with the pressure. Start with a light pressure. Too high pressure can result in a glossy print that will only get worse if you try to remove it.

Normally you press for 15 to 20 seconds and now you press 25 to 30 seconds. Be sure to also use a protective cloth during pressing.

Protection tips:

Another issue to take into account is the ironing cloth. This is used during the application of heat to your transfer and helps to ensure that your fabric does not scorch or melt. It helps to protect your garment.

However, this ironing cloth can now prevent the transfer to be carried out correctly. It is possible that the fabric does not allow sufficient heat to pass through to do its job. The result: the HTV doesn’t adhere to the polyester.

Fortunately, there is a variety of thicknesses that you can choose from. Best to also try a few of them.

Thin protection generally works best with polyester t-shirts. They will still protect the garment from damage, but they will not prevent the transfer from being successfully applied.

Some people place a layer of thin fabric over the garment that they are going to print on and then that acts as a protection. This can work, but finding the exact thickness you need can be incredibly difficult.

Another complication: polyester t-shirts with a lot of color

Problems caused by the sprouting of colors can occur on different types of material, but it is primarily a problem with polyester. It is most common on substances for which a large amount of colorant has been added during production. My tip is to wash the garment first.

The biggest problems are usually with sublimated substances. One way to see if this risk exists, is to look at both sides of the fabric. For example, a t-shirt is more at risk if the inside is completely colored and the outside is provided with a pattern.

The good news:

Special types of HTV have been developed for this type of material. You must therefore pay close attention when purchasing heat transfer vinyl. I have listed a few tips for you that can be useful and that can save money. So that you do not’t make a bad decision while purchasing HTV.

Conclusion: Use the right type HTV 

The success of polyester printing with HTV mainly depends on the type you use. There are many different types of HTV, but not all of them are suitable for working with polyester.

Again, this largely comes down to the temperature at which the transfer must work. As we have already seen, polyester usually requires lower temperatures than other materials.

That is why the best vinyls for polyester are the ones that are designed to work well at lower temperatures. They ensure that the transfer stays in place without causing damage to the garment.

10 TIPS ON PRINTING HTV:

  1. When you have cut out an image with your cutting machine, use your scissors to cut as close to the edge of the drawing as possible. First: that saves you on material. Secondly: that gives you the possibility to place several pieces of your design under or next to each other at the same time. And third: this way you avoid the risk that the transparent liner will leave a mark on your other layers of htv
  2. Check whether you use the right material for printing: cotton, polyester, nylon or a mix of these
  3. When using your new material for the first time: do a test
  4. Check whether the temperature of your iron is correct (cotton or linen position or the hottest position that your material can tolerate) or the temperature of the heat press
  5. You can use HTV over one another. You only have to take your times into account. Each layer may only be pressed for a few seconds. That is because the htv can shrink a bit and then your design will no longer fit together! Moreover, your bottom layer would overheat if you gave each layer the full pressing time.
  6. Also note: You can squeeze more colors flex over each other but you cannot apply each htv material over another (so you cannot HTV or flocked foil on top of glitter htv)
  7. By pre-pressing your garment for a few seconds (3 to 5 “), you ensure that the moisture and any creases have disappeared
  8. Always use protection (an ironing cloth or baking paper) when pressing multiple layers. This way you protect your iron or the top plate of your heat press as well as your garment and the htv itself. When pressing HTV, tiny pieces may remain unnoticed on the heat plate, which will then end up on your garment at your next press turn. So my tip: keep everything clean by using protection.
  9. You can postpress your work for 3 to 5 seconds
  10. HTV must sit, rest and cure at least for 24 hours. So it is not advisable to wash it before that time.

CONCLUSION:

So you see, there are so many more options for printing with HTV than just printing a nice glitter shirt. Let your inspiration run free and try one of the options above. Don’t forget to share your creation in the comments below so that you can inspire others too! And as always, if you still have questions, you can always ask them below.

4 Easy Ways to Remove Rhinestones from Clothes

When rhinestones got misplaced on my T-shirt creations, I had to find an easy way to remove them again. So I searched for solutions and found there were several ways that you can do that, depending on the material your clothes are made off and which stones are attached. So, if you ever find yourself in the same situation, try these 4 easy ways to remove rhinestones from your clothes and other fabric.

1- USING A STEAM IRON

When using this method, you must turn the dress inside out. Then placing a protective cloth on the back of the fabric where the rhinestones are. Turn on the steam of your iron and spread the steam. The heat and steam of the iron will soften the glue and make it possible to remove the stones. Please be carefully because the stones will be hot! Use a pair of tweezers as an aid. For this method you have to be quick because once the glue has cooled down, the effect is gone.

This is a very simple method, but does not work on all types of fabrics. If the rhinestones have come loose, but the glue has remained, use the following method to get rid of it.

Strijkijzer

2-ACETONE

Another method that is definitely worth a try, is using acetone. Also with this method preferably turn the fabric if possible. The purpose of using acetone is weakening the grip of the glue and then you can swoop in and remove both the rhinestones and the glue. If you have a spray bottle, then put acetone in it and spray a little on the back of the garment on the stones. Or if you don’t have a spray bottle, just use a cotton swab and dip one end in the acetone. Then use it on the glue area. When you do this enough (but don’t overdo it) the stones will lose their grip. Remove the glue from the front with a cotton cloth.

I found on the internet that nail polish remover is also a possibility but I found this method to be to dangerous for damaging the garment. It is best that you check whether your substance is resistant to such treatment. Do not use it on synthetic fabrics because they cannot stand it.

If the glue starts to become soft and gel-like as a result of the above methods, you can also try to remove it with a normal gum.

3- SOAP

I don’t always feel completely at ease with the above methods, so then I reach for this method instead. I take a regular piece of soap and apply water and the soap at the area where the rhinestones are glued. I hold the sides of the fabric with rhinestones in the middle and rub them against each other. Normally, the rhinestones come off in a couple of minutes when doing it this way. There can still be some glue left sticking on your garment. But to remove that is easy. Just use your index finger nail or gum and scratch off the glue. Soap weakens the grip on fabric and will eventually release the glue. If you want to reuse those stones, you can do this by gluing them on again with a hotfix glue.

4-SUPER GLUE SOLVENT

If you don’t like any of previous methods or if you find that the products are too risky for use on your garment, buy an adhesive solvent yourself and try testing it first. There are many glue solvents on the market. Now apply it to both sides of the stones and leave it for a while (read the user manual). This should remove both the stones and the glue from your fabric.
