Siser Fluorescent StripFlock Project – Hanging with my Peeps

Today I am so excited to share a project featuring the new Siser fluorescent StripFlock Pro iron on vinyl colors from Siser North America!  I was able to test these new flocked colors out, and I can tell you that after one project I am hooked!  It worked perfect for this Easter peeps project!

Not only are the colors amazing and vivid, but the texture of this vinyl is so soft and it has a little bit of a fuzzy feel.  That’s right, I said it is fuzzy!  It reminds me of the baby books that have images of animals with texture for the babies to touch. It is perfect for this Easter Peeps towel project.

Bright Beautiful Colors

Here you can see the fluorescent colors that I was playing with.  I decided to use the orange, pink and yellow for a great springtime color combination.

For my design, I used a svg from one of my favorite sites, LoveSVG . . . HERE is a link to the exact svg that I used for this project.  I did adjust the colors on the SVG to go with the colors of the Siser flocked vinyl.

To cut the Siser flocked vinyl, I used my Cricut Explore machine and had it set on Iron-on +

I placed the Siser StripFlock Pro on to my Cricut mat, with the shiny carrier side of the vinyl down on the mat.  Next, flip or mirror your image since you are cutting from the back side of the vinyl.

Look at that texture!

After I cut all of the layers, I weeded the excess material away.  This vinyl is a little thicker than a regular HTV due to the flocked texture, but once you get your weeding tool through the flocked vinyl it weeds so easily!  I did find in that it was easier to poke my weeding tool in close to the corner of the piece and kind of slide it towards the corner of the vinyl to get it started.

This close up photo is so you can see the texture of the flocked vinyl.  If you like the way it looks, wait until you touch it!  I want to use this flocked vinyl on all of my personalized blankets from now on since it is so soft.

First, since the pink bunny is in the center of the image, I started by pressing that layer on to the towel with my heat press.  This allowed me to center the entire image more easily.  The application instructions for the Siser StripFlock can be found HERE.  I was able to line up and press both the yellow layer and the black at the same time, and then the orange was the last layer that I pressed.

Here is the finished project hanging on my oven, all ready to welcome in Spring!  I could do a whole coordinating look with these bunnies for Easter. I could make a banner or Welcome Spring sign, napkins, shirts, embellishments on Easter baskets. The list goes on and on!

I prefer to use Siser brand vinyl for my iron on projects. I feel that is the best quality brand of iron on vinyl out there, and it weeds the easiest. For permanent vinyl I like StarCraft vinyl. People have asked me why not Cricut brand, since I use a Cricut machine. Personally I just do not like the way the Cricut vinyl cuts or weeds. I think you should find the brand you love and work with that product. Test things out for yourself. Sometimes it is just a personal preference like how some people would rather have Pepsi products over Coke products.

So once you find your brand of vinyl, where should you buy it? If your favorite brand is sold at the local craft store, then you are lucky in the fact that you can pretty much garantee that you can run to the store and pick up vinyl when ever you need it.

For me, Siser was not always sold in the stores, as it is now, so I had to get it from online retailers. Again, this is where you can either go with your personal preference of stores or go where the best deal is. One day the best price might be at one store, and then the next week it might be from a different retailer. We all do this when we sometimes pick up toliet paper at the grocery store, but then we also get it at Target when it is on sale.

I also love that I can order large rolls or small sheets when ordering Siser online. This can give you a larger variety of choices and allow to to save money on larger orders.

Because of that, I will always share all of the different resource I am connected to and you can choose which one is best for you!

Heat Transfer Warehouse is another supplier that I love, and they are actually somewhat close to me. Their headquarters are in North Dakota and I am in Minnesota. They even have their own line of vinyl, and they are partnering with other companies to really bring you a wide variety of products.

You may have noticed that there are a lot of retailers that only ship to places in the United States. This is because shipping prices can really add up. I want to be able to help my followers find their products no matter where they live and that is why I was happy to find some retailers that ship world wide! That is where the next two compnaies come in as options.
