I hope you guys aren't too sick of hearing about my new Silhouette!!
I have about 237,484 or so projects in mind with it so I hope not :) Here is my latest!
I started with this little top and bottom I purchased at Wal-Mart for $2 a piece.
For this project I am using Silhouette's Smooth Black Transfer Material with my machine.
Here is my machine...
I cut a small piece of transfer material and put it in the machine with the glossy side down. The picture below would be the wrong way to do it. I definitely put the glossy side up first because I did not feel the need to read directions....
I downloaded a peace sign from Silhouette's online store. I LOVE this feature of Silhouette. It's very similar to iTunes. They have a massive online store of clipart and designs fro $.99 a piece. It takes just a second to pick, download and checkout and then it immediately adds it to your library.
After cutting the peace sign with the machine I peeled the extra material off. You just want to peel away what you don't want to be ironed on. Here's mine!
That leaves the clear part a bit tacky which is great because it stays in place while you are ironing. I placed it on my onesie below. You have to use a high cotton setting on your iron for 45-60 seconds. I also poured the water out of my iron first.
Then, I placed a piece of fabric over my design and ironed it.
A minute later I was done and peeled the clear plastic piece from the design. It pulled up super easy.
And I was left with this cutie! I was hesitant to post until I washed it to make sure it washes well and good news! It washed awesome. I hang dry many of my clothes and this said to hang dry for longer lasting designs so that was no problem.
Little Miss wasn't totally cooperating when I tried to get an action shot but here are a few anyway :)
Haha... Can't you tell she loves it??
I love how I turned a $4 Wally world outfit into a custom design for almost nothing! Can't wait to make more!! Go check out our friends over at Silhouette!! It is the bomb and you will so not be disappointed!!
