Can you guess what today is? Today is our monthly Silhouette Challenge! Each month I team up with a few of my favorite creative ladies and we all make a project using our Silhouette Machines. This month our theme was all about fabric! If you can wear it, use it as a bag, clean with it or snuggle up to it, you can make it with a Silhouette Machine! Just look at all of these fun fabric projects!
For my Silhouette fabric project I decided to make my self a cute shirt to wear while I’m working on all my fantastic DIY projects.
After designing, cutting, and weeding out my design with my Silhouette Machine I grabbed a gray t-shirt and laid out my design using two sewing pins. To make sure the pins were even I made a few quick measurements using a ruler.
Next I prepared my fabric by heating it for about 15 seconds using the high heat setting on my iron.
Next I applied my graphic to my shirt using the sewing pins as a guide. Then using light pressure I applied my graphic. The instructions on the adhesive vinyl say to let it sit for 25-30 seconds. I found this was too long and the plastic would start to adhere to the iron causing it the distort the image slightly. I recommend holding it in place for around 15 seconds. To made sure my design adhered I went over it twice and then turned the shirt upside down and ironed it from the reverse side for another 25 seconds.
Once the shirt cooled completely, I gently removed the plastic. Then my shirt was ready to wear!!
