I ordered a new tool the other day! It’s the Clover Mini Iron II. It has all sorts of attachments for hot ironing just about anything.
It is technically used to iron quilts, appliques, bias tape, paper crafts, and small surface areas that are hard to reach with bigger irons. It has three heat settings; low (wool, rayon, polyester, silk), medium (cotton, linen), high. It has a large iron tip, ball tip, slim line tip, hot knife tip, and a small iron tip. You can press any small spot on your fabric projects. Or, you can use it for pressing your HTV on smaller projects.
I ordered the Clover Mini Iron II to use for heat transfer vinyl on cups, mugs and smaller surface areas. I made a cute decal for my cup to take to work.
I first saw this mini iron on Alexis Middleton’s Silhouette Savy class on Craftsy. I have learned a lot of new techniques from that class. She was using the Clover Mini Iron II to put HTV on a pair of tennis shoes. It does get very hot, so watch your fingers and the kiddies!
I’m currently working on a large stencil and vinyl wall decal for a friends business logo. I learned how to make the large decals on Alexis’ class. So fun. I’ll share this project in the future. This week I received a new 12″ x 24″ Silhouette cutting mat to use for large vinyl projects. It makes cutting a lot easier than trying to tape everything together.
