A few weeks ago, I posted this Grunge Valentine Stamp.   After that, I had lots of questions about how to weed grunge files.  So today, I thought I’d show how easy it is to weed one of my grunge designs. I make the grunge design as easy as possible to weed, so you get the grunge look without spending tons of time weeding.

Here’s what you need:

To start, upload your file into your cutting software.  Adjust the size to fit your shirt (mine is approx. 10″ x 7.25″).  Be sure to mirror your design.  Then load and cut with HTV vinyl.  Just a little note,  these grunge designs can take extra long to load into your software and to cut.  So, be patient.  Next, get to work weeding away the excess vinyl.  Here are some pics of me weeding this design.  I make my designs so that almost all the grungy pieces come up on the first big peel.  Just go slow.  There are just a few spots that I had to go back and weed, but the whole design took less than 5 minutes.  So easy and it looks great!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your files, they are all wonderful! Do you have any advice on weeding grunge patterns? You said that your designs remove almost all the pieces when removing the first big peel. You mention to go slow. Do you design your pieces in a way that this is easily accomplished? If so, thank you, thank you. Other designers have pieces that require a lot of time to remove the “grunge” that doesn’t remove with the first big peel. The use of a lint roller over the pattern helps, but one has to be careful to not remove the pattern.
    Thank you!

    • Yes, when I design any files with the grunge look, I spend lots of time adjusting the file so that the “grunge” peels up easily. This is probably not the case with all designers. The lint roller is a good tip!

  2. what font do you use? I did this design using your tutorial but instead of vinyl I did it as a stencil with freezer paper…It came out amazing! It’s not always easy doing this as you have to transfer little pieces by hand but this font is done in a way that it’s all connected.

    • The font I used is 1873 Winchester, but I added the grunge look. I try to make my grunge files as easy as possible to weed/transfer. Glad it worked for you!
