Some time ago, I attempted to make myself a shirt with lyrics from the song “Defying Gravity” (from the musical Wicked) but I bought viny that wasn’t HTV. So, I applied the glittery vinyl to a canvas and gave it to our music teacher at school for her to hang in her classroom. I still had plans to make a shirt for myself, so when @Edel (who waited very patiently for me to finish it) asked if I’d make her one, too, I ordered up some green glitter HTV. I got the first one cut, but it was a beast to weed, so I put it aside. Then, life intervened, and, in the meantime, a couple of the letters fell off the HTV sheet. When I tried to cut the second one (and a few extra letters to replace the ones I lost), it did not cut properly at all, and I ruined the entire sheet of glitter HTV. I swore I’d never buy glitter HTV again! It’s pretty scratchy on the shirt, anyway, so no great loss, in my mind.
Instead, I picked up some nice bright green HTV and cut the design again. It was still a beast to weed, and I realized about halfway through that it was because, for some reason, the cut lines around (and inside) each letter didn’t connect, so I had to use tiny scissors to cut away the last bit (I was at my mom’s and she didn’t have an X-acto knife). But, I finally got it weeded, and I think it came out pretty great! It looks crooked in the photo, but I’m pretty sure it’s straight in real life
I didn’t cut myself one, because it looks like I’ll need to change the font for the text on the back. I’m not torturing myself with the weeding of that font again!
