Applying Heat Transfer Vinyl to Hessian


HTV Santa Sack on Hessian by Janet Packer for Silhouette Uk Blog


Hello,  Over on the Silhouette UK Blog we are celebrating Christmas with 12 days of fabulous Christmas makes. My post is the 1st Day of Christmas and shows how to decorate a hessian Santa sack. The sacks I decorated don't have a drawstring, so need a band closure and a decorative bow.

I used matt white flock heat transfer material on hessian with just a few silver stars to highlight the design. In the post I take you through how to decorate a Santa sack with designs and fonts from the Silhouette Design Store.

The post contains a number of tricks and tips including how to make the vinyl stick to hessian (which can be a little tricky).

I hope you'll try using HTV on Hessian, Jute, Burlap or cotton canvas and pop over to the Silhouette UK Blog for instructions and hints on using these trickier materials.

Look out for the second day of Christmas on Friday - Nadine has a special treat for you!

    1. Thanks Jackie and Kathy. I wouldn't be without my Silhouette. Even if I'm not doing any cutting, I often use the software for designing projects and patterns. Love it!
