Hello my crafty friends,
Today I am sharing t-shirts I made with my two new machines.
I have been researching heat press machines and a new die-cutting machine. Proworld had a good deal during the Memorial Day weekend, in which you buy a specific amount and get a discount on the heat press machine so I jumped on it. I was intimidated by the heat press machine, however after completing my first t-shirt job I asked myself why I did not buy it sooner.
I have been a loyal cricut customer for a long time. When the company stops supporting non-cricut software it limited my options to design, I started research on various die-cutting machines. I gave my husband a wish list for my birthday/Mother’s Day gift. I was very surprised to receive this in the mail Wednesday.
Even more surprised because I just ordered the Silhoutte Cameo over the holiday weekend. The Cameo is currently on back-order until the end of June, I will probably cancel that order.
The KNK-Zing die-cutting machine is the total opposite of the cricut and cutting layout so now I have to retrain my brain..lol. Making these t-shirts was my first project using both machines. It is definitely a new learning curve but I absolutely love the way it cuts the vinyl.
Here are Dr. Seuss’s Thing 1-Thing 6 t-shirts I made for my co-worker.
Gildan Red T-Shirt (youth L,M,S, 3T, 18M, 12M)

I can not wait to try other materials on the KNK Zing. I am planning to keep my Expression 2 to have more options. Now on to my vacation t-shirts and reorganizing my scrap office again.
I hope you enjoyed, thank you for stopping by,
