Heat transfer vinyl technique

Here is my first attempt at heat transfer vinyl.  The chick was cut at 3.1" x 2.6" and the cracked egg I just sized to fit over it.  I put the eyes and beak on with some fabric paint, and the "just hatched" is also painted on.  The chick is CAC and the wording is Pooh font, as in the previous onesies.  I used Siser Easy weed heat tranfer, and I bought it online at: 

I liked H&H because you can buy a multi-pack by the foot, instead of the large rolls, but if you do a search for Siser heat transfer vinyl, you can find it elsewhere.  I also saw that Custom Crops carries the Silhouette heat vinyl, so just look around and find what you like!  For this, I used the color "Cream" for the egg, and "Sun Yellow" for the chick.  In order to set it, I used my iron on the highest cotton setting, put a thin cloth over the vinyl, and pressed my iron onto it for 60 seconds.  IYou have to apply a fair amount of pressure, but it worked perfectly, and I really like the look of the vinyl!  Hope you like this one, and thanks for visiting!
