Learn how to make a beach hat with heat transfer vinyl. They’d be perfect for a custom set for a girls’ weekend or bridal party too!
First, you’ll need to design your cut in Design Space.
Measure across the inside and outside circles of the brim of the hat. Create two circles on the canvas in these sizes and center them. Slice the two circles so that you have a ring representing the space on the hat where the vinyl will go.
See this Design Space project for an example.
Then curve the and size the text within that space. Delete the ring and cut the iron-on vinyl.

Apply vinyl to beach hat
Layer the vinyl on the hat and place a piece of parchment or protective sheet to cover the iron-on and the hat.
Use the EasyPress 2 (I like the small size 6×7 for this project) Because of the curve of the hat, you’ll probably only be able to do a section at a time and then move to the next spot.
Peel off the carrier sheet.
Here are some great idea starters for your beach hat phrase:
Head in the Clouds
Out of Office
Do Not Disturb
Wish You Were Here
Wild and Free
If you make one I would love to see the final result of your beach hat with heat transfer vinyl.
