Celebrating New Years is always something I look forward to. My husband is from Tonga and they’re right on the International Dateline so they’re the very first ones to celebrate the New Year.
We ring in New Years in Tonga at our local church meetinghouse. We grab lots of balloons and string and have the most fun time dancing around the sports court. No lie, it’s one of the most fun nights we have on the island. Here is our Christmas tree that we have in Tonga and we had a craft night where all the kids cut paper snowflakes and we blew up more balloons for the tree. I remember my husband telling me that some Christmases all they got were balloons and they were so excited. Here is the family a few years back on our trip. We try to go to Tonga every few years but it’s getting expensive since we all require seats on the plane. It’s definitely a humbling experience going there and I tell you all about our trip to Tonga in this post.
But enough about Christmas lets talk about New Years and how you can get 12 free New Year SVG files!
Like I said above, New Years is always a fun time of year for us. But believe me, when I say, I’m the same mess that I was in 2017. I can’t get my act together so this New Year, Same Mess SVG file is perfect in describing me.
Supplies for your New Years shirt
- New Year, Same Mess SVG file
- Tank Top
- Iron On Vinyl
- Heat Press, EasyPress or Iron
- Cricut or Silhouette
- Weeding Tool
Click on the link above to the free SVG file and save it to your computer. You’ll then upload it into your electronic software. To upload an SVG file into Cricut Design Space, follow these instructions. To upload an SVG file into your Silhouette software, Persia Lou has a great step-by-step tutorial on how to do that.
Next, cut your free New Years SVG file with your electronic cutter. Remember to mirror your image so that it cuts properly. I prefer using my Cricut and that’s just because I’m used to it. I haven’t used a Silhouette in a few years but they cut the iron-on vinyl just as good.
After you’ve unloaded your vinyl from the cutter, you want to remove any of the images that you do not want to go on your New Years shirt. Use a weeding tool or a safety pin and take off the vinyl. You now have your entire New Year, Same Mess image still attached to the carrier sheet.
Being by preheating your fabric to the suggested settings. Lay your iron-on vinyl on top of the shirt and then press for the recommended amount of time. Turn the shirt over and press again. Depending on what material of HTV you use, you want to check if it is a warm peel or cool peel.
What does it mean to cool peel or warm peel heat transfer vinyl?
It’s simple, cool peel means to allow your HTV to come back down to room temperature before you peel off the carrier sheet. Warm peel means to pull the carrier sheet off of your material while it is still hot.
A lot of foil iron on is cold peel. You want to allow it to cool down so that your foil HTV doesn’t wrinkle. You’ll have to use a little bit of force to take the carrier sheet off of the cool HTV but it won’t peel off your shirt.
What if I don’t want a workout shirt?
Easy, put this on any shirt you own to let your friends, family, and strangers know you are one hot mess! It looks super cute on this baseball shirt and quite frankly, you can wear it all year round.
