Use this Self Love Club SVG file to make a cute DIY Valentine Shirt. Whether you are somebody’s plus one or are hanging out solo on Valentine’s Day, this Self Love Club SVG file is the perfect saying for your Valentine attire.
When I sat down to create my newest SVG bundle, I knew that retro was the way to go. I really love the look of this file and am so happy with the way this entire bundle turned out (you can see the full bundle later in the post). I think this saying is so important because as women, I feel like we are taught to always take care of everyone else but we very rarely give that same love and care to ourselves. It’s time to take care of ourselves this Valentine’s Day.

HOW TO MAKE A SHIRT WITH SELF LOVE CLUB SVG FILE AND HEAT TRANSFER VINYL
- Grab the Self Love Club SVG file in the resource library, accessible to my email subscribers. Not an subscriber? Sign up at the bottom of this post or here.
- Cut out the Valentine SVG file onto heat transfer vinyl (HTV). I like to use Siser Easyweed HTV because it is easy to work with and holds up well in the wash.
Here is a detailed tutorial on how to cut heat transfer vinyl with a Silhouette.
If you want to use multiple colors of vinyl, this tutorial will show you how to cut out multiple colors of vinyl.
- Weed away the excess vinyl.
- Place an EasyPress Mat into the shirt. Use the EasyPress 2 to adhere the vinyl to the shirt at 325 degrees for 15 seconds. I recommend an EasyPress 2 instead of an iron because you can set the exact temperature and the plate provides more even heat.
Here is a detailed tutorial on how to use a Cricut EasyPress 2.
- Remove the carrier sheet (cold peel) and you’re done!
