DIY Dish towels supplies



Step One

Prepare your design in Silhouette Studio®. I added rectangles around my images so that I have a border area to protect the material I will be stenciling on.




Step Two

Select “Stencil Material” in your Cut Settings window. Once selected, the appropriate blade depth settings will be suggested.

Step Three

Place stencil material on cutting mat and insert into machine. Select appropriate blade depth before inserting blade into slot. Proceed to cut design.

Step Four

Remove mat and use the hook tool to weed the stencil material. Weeding is the process of removing all of the areas on the stencil that you would like to eventually fill with paint.

Apply transfer material and start applying fabric ink. I recommend using a sponge dauber and using a little product at a time to prevent bleeding.
