Default heat transfer vinyl onesies

ok, so someone posted this blog yesterday:
http://vanessachristensontutorials.blogspot.com/


and I was looking through her tutorials and I am in LOVE with the heat transfer vinyl onesies...problem is, I cant find anyone that makes those images!! She sells those two images in her shop, but I want different images, I have looked ALL OVER the web, and even asked etsy users that makes wall decals if they would make some on the heat transfer paper..but no luck. Does anyone know where I can find these? Thanks so much!

I actually have a Silhouette Machine that cuts out shapes and the heat transfer paper, but have had horrible luck with the heat transfer not sticking when you iron it. I would love to sell you some; however, fear that you will be unhappy with the product. The paper is from Silhouette, and I'm not sure if it's just their material or user error??

I have a craft robo and can cut almost any black/white clip art image (silhouette) as well as ANY font imaginable (I'm a font junkie LOL) My problem is I have found the heat transfer paper but it is pricey. Anyone have a source for the paper that won't cost me an arm, a leg and a foot?

My dad does them, but I asked him about it and he said that his only work with a heat press. That it probably wouldn't work with a normal iron, because the heat has to get up to like 360 degrees or something. So if you happen to have a heat press?? lol

You need to use a commercial heat transfer machine to get the vinal to stay good - alot of heat! I don't think a hand held gets hot enough! That's what I just for my rhinestone shirts! I have also used vinyl- holds really good!

I have a vinyl cutting machine also. I made some shirts for my boys in December and they turned out good. I just used an iron and they are ok. I've washed them a couple of times and they're still holding up. A heat press would definitely have made them better though.

As for the images, are you looking for images so you can cut them yourself?
