Place the HTV pieces on your cutting mat so that they cover the same gridded areas as the software.

Layer by layer, press the HTV onto the felt shape. To get the HTV to stick on a job like this, all you need is adequate heat and pressing time.

To prevent the felt from coming into direct touch with the iron, you may want to cover it with parchment paper.

Then, peel off the HTV’s carrier sheet.

Using any additional colors of HTV, repeat the pressing process. Before pressing, remember to cover the HTV with parchment to keep it from coming into direct touch with the iron.

You could use a glue gun to glue a pin on the back or use some fuse-able material to make patches.
