This shirt design was actually made with Disney’s Princess and the Frog movie in mind.

I love the music, the story, and Tiana in general.

It was pure coincidence that Disney announced the reimagining of Splash Mountain into Princess and the Frog, but this shirt is perfect to wear to the parks now! Especially with these interchangeable ears!

    How to set up your design in the Silhouette Software for success.

    First, you’ll want to draw a weeding box around your design (the red box in the picture below).

    This will help you easily weed your design so you don’t have to pull up a lot of vinyl at once.

    Then, select your design and the box and CENTER it.

    Then you’ll cut by color. You can do this in the Business Edition easily, it’s a little more labor intensive if you have a different version of the software.

    How to mark the center of the vinyl once it’s cut and weeded.

    Remember how we drew a box around the design and centered it in the last step? That is what will help us find the center of our design now!

    When you weed heat transfer vinyl there is a carrier sheet on top of it. The sticky side is what you put on your shirt (or whatever material you’re putting the design on).

    For this step, you’ll want to fold the carrier sheet in half (sticky sides facing out) and crease the middle. DO NOT crease the vinyl, only the carrier sheet.

    Then you will use a ruler and marker to draw a straight line down the crease so that it is easy to see. (this is optional but really helpful to be able to see where your line is on the carrier sheet)

    Do this with each piece of vinyl you have so that you can easily line it up! Also, use permanent marker for this. The one I used bled a little (see image below) and it was a bit annoying. Permanent marker will stop that from happening.

    Sometimes finding the center of your shirt can be difficult, which is why a tee ruler is perfect to use on your shirts! Instead of drawing lines in permanent marker and trying to line everything up manually, this ruler makes it so much easier (and faster)!

    We also have a heat transfer vinyl sizing and placement guide that you can download! It includes the best sizes for all types and sizes of shirts, the best heat press to use and more!
