The mini press does have a bit of an advantage for this specific project, however, because it’s best for getting into small places. We’re pressing this heat transfer around a pocket, so the Cricut mini can get right in there!
Turn EasyPress Mini on, set to medium temperature and allow to heat up
Pre-press garment for 5 seconds
Press design for 25 seconds using light pressure, while constantly moving the EasyPress
Press the back of the garment for 15 seconds
Peel carrier sheet warm
I’m using a silicon pad to press on, but you can also use an EasyPress mat if you have one!
I turned on my EasyPress Mini, set it to medium temperature, and waited for it to heat up. It didn’t take long to heat up!
I pre-pressed the garment for 5 seconds.
I positioned the design onto the shirt. If you like, you can use heat resistant tape to tape your design down. This is because you will constantly need to move the EasyPress Mini as you press your design.
I placed a Teflon sheet over the design and pressed it for 25 seconds, constantly moving the EasyPress Mini, as Cricut recommends in their heat guide.
Then I turned the t-shirt over and pressed the design from the back for 15 seconds.
I let the design cool down for a little bit, and then removed the carrier sheet.
Just like that, it’s all done! It looks like the giraffe is just having a little nap in the pocket! So cute.
A perfect EasyPress Mini project!
