This is one of the most special projects I have ma This is one of the most special projects I have made ❤️ A dear friend asked me to screen print on her late husband’s handkerchiefs. She wanted to gift one to each of their grandchildren.⁠
⁠
Talk about pressure not to mess up!! These were so special and irreplaceable! I used my screen print press to ensure perfect placement of the monogram on each handkerchief. ⁠
⁠
Because they were so thin and soft, screen printing was the way to go.  The @speedball_art <a href=fabric ink soaked into the fibers leaving a soft feel.⁠ ⁠ Thank you, Kim, for trusting me with this project ❤️❤️❤️⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #memorialgift #monogram #memorialgifts #cricut #cricutmade #cricutmaker #cricuttutorial #cricuteverywhere #cricutcrafting #designspace #cricutcrafts #cricutproject #cricutcreations #cricutmachine #diyscreenprinting #craftroom #screenprinting #screenprinttutorial #vinylcraft #htvvinyl #speedball #screenprinted #vinylcrafts #craftsblogger #silhouettecameo #madewithcricut #cricutexploreair #cricutcreated #htv #pigskinsandpigtails">
I bought this IKEA pillowcase probably 2+ years ag I bought this IKEA pillowcase probably 2+ years ago and FINALLY did the project I had in mind for it!  These pillow cases are great for screen printing but I have learned a few tricks to getting a perfect print.⁠
⁠
⭕️ Line up your screen before putting the <a href=painter’s tape on the screen. This makes it easier to see that your design is centered.⁠ ❌ Don’t use the 10x14 frame for this. The full 12x12 sheet of vinyl fits better on this 16x20 size frame.⁠ ⭕️ Instead of using a large squeegee, I printed each XO individually with a small squeegee. This made it easier to get even pressure on each letter.⁠ ❌ Don’t squeegee over the pillow seams. When your squeegee hits these bumps, it can cause your ink to bleed. ⁠ ⁠ Watch my stories for a more detailed explanation of these tips!⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #diycraft #cricut #cricutmade #cricutmaker #cricuteverywhere #craftymama #cricutcrafting #cricutcrafts #cricutproject #craftersofinstagram #cricutcreated #cricutmachine #screenprinting #screenprinttutorial #vinylcraft #speedball #screenprinted #vinylcrafts #craftsblogger #vinylscreenprinting #createmakeshare #pigskinsandpigtails #diycrafts #silhouettecameo #diycrafting #craftersgonnacraft #makersgonnamake #calledtobecreative #ikeafind #vinylcutter">

Did you notice my trick for lining up the screen? Before adding the <a href=painter’s tape I was able to see through the screen to figure out my placement. I used dot stickers to mark the top corners, making it easy to line up the screen each time. ⁠ ⁠ I’m sharing a couple more tips in my stories today so be sure to click through those! ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #diycraft #cricut #cricutmade #cricutmaker #cricuteverywhere #craftymama #cricutcrafting #cricutcrafts #cricutproject #craftersofinstagram #cricutcreated #cricutmachine #screenprinting #screenprinttutorial #vinylcraft #speedball #screenprinted #vinylcrafts #targetbag #vinylscreenprinting #createmakeshare #pigskinsandpigtails #diycrafts #silhouettecameo #diycrafting #craftersgonnacraft #makersgonnamake #targettrip #svg #vinylcutter">
