Step 1: Before you get started making your custom tote bag, you’ll want to wash it first. This bag in safe to launder in the washing machine in cold water and on the gentle cycle. However, you’ll want to make sure you hang dry the bag since the inside in lined. Heat from a dryer could melt this material.
Step 2: Print off the “Rosé in the USA” template from a printer. Use your scissors to cut the words apart from each other. Be sure to leave a little bit of paper around the edge of the letters. This will help with the next step.
Step 3: Flip the paper template over and rub a pencil over the back. You’ll want to make sure you press hard enough and are overlapping the lines. This is how we will transfer the template design on to the vinyl to be cut out. If you prefer, you could also use transfer paper for this step. I like the first method the best since most people have a pencil on hand as opposed to transfer paper.
Step 4: You’ll want to go over each of the words with your pencil. Again, making sure to make a nice dark line.
Step 5: Grab the heat transfer vinyl and flip it over so the shiny side is facing up. This is the liner. Place the Rose´ template on top and trace around the outline. Be sure to press down hard. This is how the design will be transferred to the vinyl to be cut. Since the pencil is going on the liner, you don’t have to worry about it showing up on your vinyl. Once the liner is removed, you won’t see the pencil marks. Continue adding your templates on top of the liner and tracing around them.
Step 6: After all of your words have been added to your vinyl, use scissors to cut out each letter.
Step 7: Place the red, white, and blue tote bag on top of a heat pad or ironing board. Heat up an EasyPress (or iron) to 340 degrees. Place it in the center of your bag and heat for 5 seconds. Then, arrange your letters on your bag to get an idea of spacing.
Step 8: Remove all of the words except Rosé. Place a Teflon sheet on top and heat for 30 seconds. Then add your remaining letters and heat them until all of your words have been added.
Step 9: Let all of your letters cool and then remove the top liners. If any of the vinyl starts to pull up while you’re removing it, just place it back down over the vinyl and heat it again. After you heat the vinyl again slowly remove the liner unit the vinyl is nicely adhered.
You now have a trendy large tote bag perfect for all of your outings this summer! If your bag gets soiled while you’re out and about, don’t worry because the vinyl and bag are both washable! You’ll just want to toss it in the washing machine on cold with the gentle cycle. To dry it, envatjust hang it up to air dry. Enjoy!
