The 12″x10″ EasyPress is a perfect solution to a large project like a DIY ‘Good Vibes Only’ Sweater. Use this free cut file to create yours too.
I’ve only had this 12″x10″ EasyPress 2 for about two weeks and have used it SO many times! Turns out most of my projects are huge… I have used it for sweaters, banners, t-shirts and all sorts of fun things. This project is one I’ve been wanting to do for a while. Tie dye is a trendy cool look and I love the look of the inverted text so I combined those two trends for this fun sweater!
The EasyPress was a game changer for my Iron On hobby and the EasyPress 2 is even a step up if you can believe it. It comes in three sizes so if you can’t see yourself making a large project like this, maybe you’d prefer the smaller size for hats or onesies.
Another awesome thing about the EasyPress 2 is it heats up faster! The smallest one heats up in about a minute and the large one only takes about 3 minutes. It also has a USB port on the back for firmware updates so if they have any fun new features to add you don’t have to buy a new device, you can just hook it up to your computer and download them for your already purchased device!
The EasyPress also has an even heat so you can get projects done quicker and they last longer. I could literally go on all day… if you’re not using one of these for your iron on you need one!! Plus they’re portable and affordable unlike a big ol’ heat press.

I decided to tie my sweater with some rubber bands and dyed it using the Rit DyeMore in Graphite for a cool gray look.
Then you’ll load up this project here! I created it for you so you can just click print and get creating. Don’t forget to mirror for iron on! If you want more iron on tips be sure to go through my checklist I’ve created for you here.
After your project is cut you will weed the negative space out. This feels kind of funny to weed the letters and not the white space but I love the look!
Next you will heat up your surface for just 5 seconds and then start ironing on the vinyl. When you get your EasyPress 2 they give you every detail of how to use the device and it is really pretty simple. You’ll heat it up to 340 (for this project) and then just place it on top of the vinyl for 30 seconds. You’ll flip the sleeve over and do the other side for about 15 seconds. I ended up pulling this with a ‘cool peel’. In other words I waited for the project to cool down to pull off the plastic.
Once you’ve pulled the plastic off you are all done! This is such a simple project but I love the subtly of it.
