HOW TO LAYER IRON ON VINYL TO MAKE PRIDE T-SHIRTS
June is National Pride Month in the United States. We usually attend at least one pride festival a year. However, with the pandemic, most have been cancelled. So, I decided to, at least, make us this Pride T-Shirt using iron on vinyl.
When I was designing this shirt, I wanted something with the Pride Flag and the Equality symbol. The Pride Flag typically has primary colors. In my SVG file, I have included both a version with primary colors as well as a pastel, more modern, take on the Flag.
LGBTQ Pride Month is celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. June was first declared “Gay and Lesbian Pride Month” by President Bill Clinton in the year 1999 and 2000. In major cities across the United States, the month encompasses thirty days of events.
In this tutorial, I’ll give you my step by step instructions and tell you what materials I think work best when making this project.
