Cue Megan-December Birthday-Best Friend-and Ugly Christmas Sweater/T-shirt Connoisseur
So as a bonus add-in for the mug I made her for her birthday I decided to make her a t-shirt. First of all, I wish I could give a cookie to whoever uploaded this design on Facebook cause its hilarious and probably took way more patience than I will ever have to do something this cool.
|Silhouette Cut File|
.Cause once the design was cut I had to pick out all the little in-between pieces of vinyl from the design (the technical term is "weeding") and I kinda wanted to shoot my eye out (yes that was a blatant Christmas movie reference)
|Tiny little pieces|
The other thing that was nice about this file was that I didn't have to worry about remembering to reverse it. Since the part of the design that is actually going to adhere to the fabric is going to be a mirror image of what was on the computer screen. But luckily this image looks great from both directions. Then all I had to do was iron.
|Protect your work from melting|
I used a piece of parchment paper in between the vinyl and the iron that way if things got too hot I wouldn't have little melty pieces of vinyl stuck to
And then I'm left with a most excellent Christmas shirt to wear....now if only I could get Megan to send me some selfies of her modeling all these awesome things! For now you'll just have to settle for a boring shot of the finished product with no model.
