How Do You Cut a Patterned HTV on a Cricut?

Cutting a patterned HTV on a Cricut is easier than it looks! Heat transfer vinyl, or HTV, is a special type of vinyl that can be ironed or pressed onto fabric. It has a special adhesive backing that adheres to fabric when heat and pressure are applied. You can use your Cricut machine to cut patterned HTV into intricate designs and shapes. Here’s how:

Step 1: Gather your materials. You will need your Cricut machine, the cutting mat, the patterned HTV, your chosen design, and an iron or heat press.

Step 2: Upload your design to the Cricut Design Space. Once you have uploaded your design, adjust the size and orientation to fit your needs.

Step 3: Place the patterned HTV onto your cutting mat with the shiny side down and load it into the Cricut machine. Make sure that it is firmly secured in place before pressing “Go” in Design Space.

Step 4: Once the machine is done cutting, carefully remove the excess vinyl from around the design.

Step 5: Peel off the clear plastic backing from the HTV then place it onto the fabric where you would like it to go.

Step 6: Apply heat and pressure using an iron or heat press following instructions according to what type of HTV you are using (there are different types of HTV with varying instructions).

Step 7: Carefully peel off any remaining plastic backing from around your design then admire your finished product!
