When I decided to customize our stroller, I went in search of successful attempts online and found none. So, I figured I’d try anyway.
I’m really happy with the results.
If you don’t have a Cricut or Silhouette machine, you can buy heat transfer iron on designs in abundance on Etsy, usually for a pretty reasonable price.
My tips for stroller customization are as follows:
- Before you get too far into the project, make sure your hood (or the part you want to customize) is removable in a way that will allow you to iron it. For us, the hood popped right up.
- Make sure you test an inconspicuous spot with your iron before you attempt to adhere the heat transfer vinyl.
- This is best done with an iron rather than a heat press, because you may need to squeeze into small areas where a heat press isn’t appropriate, but the nose of an iron can squeeze in.
- As you can tell from the picture, the vinyl is going to adhere itself down into any textures on the fabric in a different way than tshirts, so be prepared.
I used a glass cutting board over a wooden cutting board as my surface and a regular iron set to high. I applied it just like I would for a tshirt, just with a bit more care for angles.
The vinyl I used was Siser silver, specifically it came from Siser NA EasyWeed Heat Transfer Vinyl Set of 12
Finally, if you want a fancy letter like the one I have, this site has a huge selection. Clip Art Etc. I have no affiliation with the page, other than that I love the selection of letter there.
