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
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO
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 before cutting. Then load the HTV into your machine and cut. Just a little note, these grunge designs can take extra long to load into your software and even longer 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!
Then, follow the manufacturers instructions to apply the HTV to the t-shirt
I found the green shirt at Walmart on clearance for $3! I’d say that’s pretty lucky and so this design is perfect!
What do you think about the grunge look? Would you have thought getting that look could be so easy?
