May 2011 Silhouette Promotion
I've had SO much fun playing with the heat transfer material. I have to share with you some of the things I've made. With Father's Day coming up, I wanted to make some shirts for my husband and father-in-law.
My husband is a big time computer geek...very techy. So I thought it would be very fitting to give him a shirt with computer jargon. The most important thing to remember when using the heat transfer material (or vinyl) is to MAKE SURE you reverse your image so it isn't backwards when you iron it on. The instructions on the box and on the print screen warn you, but JUST in case you miss those warnings, I thought I'd add one more!
The next shirt is for my father-in-law. My dad died when I was a teenager and my kiddos call their other grandpa, "Opie". If you asked them who their grandpa is, they would probably tell you they don't have one. So I created this shirt called, "Team Opie".
This image, "Wonderful" is for purchase in the online Silhouette Store. I just adjusted the size, reversed the image and cut it. It turned out pretty cute!
I wanted to try something a little different, so the next two projects I used the heat transfer material on something other than a shirt. I just stuffed the ball cap with a hand towel and ironed the image on to the hat. Then I added a few rhinestones by putting them in place and ironing them on one at a time.
My last project was to make a pin cushion for my sewing room. I typed up the text, reversed the image, cut it out and ironed it on. Whala!
