First Silhouette Heat Transfer

IMG_3880

One of my daughters picked out a cute top to go with some corduroys for Christmas. It was attached to a plain turtleneck—a two-for-one deal. My other daughter decided she’d like a new printed turtle neck too. I had some inspiration pinned from Hanna Anderson to get this project going.

T-Shirt Idea to try (T from Hanna Anderson)

I got the “cat silhouette” and the “flower tree” from the Silhouette online store.

I curved the flat end of the flower tree graphic a little so it appeared more like a branch than an upside down tree.

I followed the directions for using the flocked heat transfer material that came in the Silhouette Heat Transfer Starter Kit {thanks Mom!}. I did have to leave the iron on the material longer than it said for a couple of the spots that wanted to come up when I peeled up the transfer sheet.

The white flocked material picks up every bit of lint so it’s not so clean and white anymore {and it did make it through a normal wash!}. Yet this shirt is still a hit with my 6 year old!
