Hats off to a fun end of summer gift! Today I’m sharing a project I made for my BFF for the Labor Day weekend. Now you have to understand my BFF, she has a very unique sense of humor and I LOVE her for it! The shirts she finds and wears, you guys, crack me up every time. We will spend hours joking around and coming up with funny gift ideas. So in light of the Labor Day weekend I decided to make her a funny hat that she could wear since she has plenty of T-shirts. We have this inside joke that when she drinks she starts to talk in cursive. Do you have those friends that when they have one too many they start to well, sound a little different than they normally do? I’m sure she is going to kill me when she reads over my post but hey, you know BFF for life! LOL
I started thinking of a way I could turn our joke into something that others could also laugh about and “My plan today… Talk cursive” was born. Now this is a hat you can bring along to those fun summer holiday parties. I wanted a light weight material and the perfect shade of pink. I found exactly what I was looking for and not only did they have various patterns but a variety of colors too.

Begin by downloading the design above.
You will want to decide the size of your text then measure your hat to ensure you will be satisfied with the results.
Once you have opened your file you will want to resize your text to fit. One of the most important things to keep in mind when cutting a heat transfer projects is that your design needs to be mirrored before cutting.
Prep your Silhouette file to send to print and load your pink heat transfer vinyl onto your Silhouette cutting mat then the grey. Make sure you place the shiny side down onto your mat. This will put the adhesive side or back side of your heat transfer up.
Once your files have been cut unload your design and weed it.
Place your cut design onto your hat and make sure your happy with placement. I used a towel to form to the hat to make it easier to iron. You will want to grab a piece of material to place on top of your design before you begin to press down with your iron. I made sure to heat up the iron before hand.
Make sure to press firmly down onto your design and apply a lot of pressure to ensure your design does not peel over time. I pressed down a few different times, each time for 45-60 seconds before lifting my iron off the design.
Now you may peel back the clear sheet carefully and slowly to make sure it adhered to your material.
