Anyone else interested in heat transfer material?

Ok so I'm guessing that there are others out there like myself who might be interested in the cutting a heat vinyl with the Cricut to design or decorate their own shirts. Decorate your Duds for 4H, school t-shirts that need a name, but were to expensive to have them silkscreened, etc...

Cricut cut-able, transfer material for custom apparel and fabrics
smooth in 10 colors: black, white, brown, cream, silver, lightblue, blue, red, yellow, pink
flocked in 10 colors: black, white, grey, darkblue, lightblue, red, yellow, green, purple, pink

What I have comes as 9"x 36" for $15
I have cut these for myself to 9"x 12 and 9"x 24
so they fit with my Cricut supplies easier.

Here's the deal - I figure there are other out there who say
"I gotta try that!" just like I did, and want one of each color to do
something creative with. so I have split the boxed material into a trial packs
for those adventurous souls like me who want to give it a try.
Trial packs of heat transfer material:
LikeIt-Smooth - $37.50 + 4.90 sh for 10 sheets 9"x 12"  - all smooth
LikeIt-Flocked - $37.50 + 4.90 sh for 10 sheets 9"x 12" - all flocked
GottaHaveItALL- $75.00 + 4.90 sh for 20 sheets 9"x 12" - both smooth and flocked

I realize that there may be other places on the net selling this
and I will check them out for big projects, but for now I just
want to give it a go with my Cricut and figured others might as well.
So I am shareing the discount price I got.


Happy Crafting!

TShirt with heat smooth and flock vinyl

I really like the way this shirt turned out.
I used the carts. -  Home Decor, Storefront(bug head), graphically speaking (handmade words)

The tan is smooth heat vinyl, the pink is flocked heat vinyl.
I cut it with the deepcut (blue) houseing set to 5, and on low or medium pressure, just enought to kiss cut the vinyl and not cut thru the glossy carrier sheet. When you weed this vinyl the carrier sheet is tacky and will stick to shirt.  On next one I will do a video.

Happy Crafting!
