Easter Tea Towel with Foil Vinyl | Free Cut Files Included!

Updated: Oct 20, 2019


I recently found this Rose Gold Foil Vinyl and I just had to get it! Foil vinyl is a bit different then working with regular iron-on vinyl so I figured I'd do a quick tutorial with some tips I've learned along the way.

Supplies I used for this project

Rose Gold Foil Vinyl - This vinyl is not the same product as regular iron-on vinyl so you do have to treat it differently to get a good final product. Make sure to read the instructions that come with your vinyl or follow my tutorial below and you're project should turn out great!

Tea Towels - I go through a lot of Tea Towels and have always ordered them from Amazon. I have tried pretty much every flour sack towel that Amazon offers and this is my favorite as of right now. I will update this if I find a better quality one at a cheaper price.

My Heat Press - This is not the best one on the market but it was inexpensive and has worked well for me for 2 years so far.

Make sure to read the instructions that come with your vinyl. I used Cricut Foil Vinyl so my instructions below are based on those with a few of my own tips and tricks.


1. Cut out the vinyl using the Custom Setting and set to Foil Iron-On Vinyl. (Make sure to mirror the image)


2. Once you cut out the design you will want to weed out the excess vinyl.


3. Place design on the material and then cover with a Tea Towel or Teflon Sheet.


4. Next you will want to heat the design for about 30 seconds. I used a Heat Press set at 310 degrees. If you don't have a heat press just use a regular iron set on the cotton/linen setting with the steam turned off.


5. You will then want to flip the design over and heat again on the reverse side of the material for about 30 seconds.


Do not peel off the plastic yet. This vinyl easily takes the shape of whatever material it is laying on while being heated. The plastic will protect the foil and prevent you from getting a pattern in it while heating the opposite side.


6. Once you have heated the vinyl on both sides, wait for it to cool completely before peeling off the plastic layer.


With regular iron-on vinyl I can typically ignored this step. However, with this foil vinyl you WILL want to wait until it has cooled completely before removing the plastic. The corners don't stay down until it has cooled and you may stretch or distort the edge of your design.
