Do you have a little dancer in your house? This Another Day Another Plié Dance Bag and Cut File is perfect for creating an adorable DIY dance bag or a fun t-shirt for every day wear.
It’s no secret that wandering the isles of Target is a therapy that I cannot find anywhere else. Sadly I live by one of the smallest, yet most heavily shopped Target stores in Utah. It’s pretty much like Black Friday every day of the week! That means when you see something you *might* like, you scoop it up instantly.
That’s how the sparkly bag I am using in today’s post ended up in my house. Sparkles and glitter are like a magnet…I saw the bag and it immediately went into the cart. Pausing to consider what I’d use the bag for or to justify the purchase would have resulting in someone
grabbing it picking it up right under my nose.
The sparkly bag has been sitting in the house for a month and almost went back to the store a few times, before I realized it would be the perfect bag for my little friend Stella to store all of her ballet accessories.
Another Day Another Plié Dance Bag + Cut File
Stella, with her perfect ballet bun, is now the proud owner of Another Day, Another Plié dance bag. Today I am sharing the instructions to create a bag of your own, along with the cute cut file.
To recreate this Another Day Another Plié dance bag you will need:
Another Day Another Plié dance bag instructions:
- Download the cut file in the format that works best for you (see supply list above).
- Upload the design to your design software and create the appropriately sized layout.
- Mirror the image so that the text appears backwards on the screen. Feed the heat transfer material into your machine with the glossy side down. Select HTV in the media menu and cut.
- Peel the negative space in the design off the plastic backing, leaving only the words and shapes on the clear plastic transfer sheet.
- Pre-heat the tote bag you’re planning to transfer the design on for about five seconds and crease the center for reference.
- Position the design on the tote bag face down so that you see it through the clear transfer sheet. Your text should be facing the right direction at this point.
- Place heat on top PRESSING FIRMLY into the design for 45-60 seconds OR if you have this amazing little portable heat press 15-20 seconds!
- Remove the iron and cloth. Gently peel up the transfer sheet. If the HTV continues to stick to the transfer sheet, replace the cloth and press again making sure to apply pressure.
Note: Follow the instructions on your HTV to determine if the transfer sheet should be pulled back when the vinyl is still hot or if you should wait until it’s cooled. When using a metallic like the rose gold, I wait for the project to cool down before removing the transfer sheet.
