Bring on the glitter pocket bling with this quick tutorial
The popular sequin pocket T-shirts that were so trendy this past fall is back for summer, but this time glitter vinyl is bringing the shimmer. Glitter pockets are a great way to update old tank tops or add life to bargain T-shirts. This DIY trend can be accomplished quickly and doesn’t even require a vinyl cutter.
DIY Glitter Pockets
What You’ll Need:
- Siser Glitter heat transfer vinyl
- Scissors or a vinyl cutter
- Heat Press or Home Iron
- Heat Transfer Cover Sheet
Step 1: Measure your pocket.
My pocket measures 3 inches by 3 inches.
Step 2: Cut your vinyl square.
I like to be exact so I created a 3×3 square in Silhouette Studio and cut it out using the Silhouette Cameo.
Step 3: (optional) Weed any excess material from the outside of the square.
Step 4: Heat Apply!
Set your heat press temperature to 320°F. For a home iron, use the wool setting and no steam. Always cover your materials with a heat transfer cover sheet or parchment paper before applying heat. Press for 10-15 seconds with firm pressure.
Step 5: Peel Carrier Sheet
Glitter is a warm peel, so remove the carrier sheet from the heat transfer vinyl after its cooled for a couple seconds and your trendy top is finished!
Step 6: Wear it!
I love the way the glitter pocket updates this basic tank top into something a little more fun and sparkly. Plus I adore Jade Glitter. It’s refreshing and reminds me of a tropical vacation, which, as you can see by my ghostly complexion, I have not been on lately.
