Step 1: Cut your design out of the Easyweed Heat Transfer Vinyl (following the settings here), and weed the excess. Easyweed HTV is the best of the best when it comes to Heat Transfer Vinyl. It applies at a lower temperature than most similar materials, the backing can be peeled hot or cold, and it doesn’t lift during weeding.
