I had Friday off due to no daycare, so Alex and I had a nice 3 day weekend. I received more vinyl last week in the mail and decided to make a couple more projects on my days off. I made some shirts and signs this weekend. First we will look at the shirts.
The first one was Paul’s idea. It is a dinosaur that wraps around to the back. I have never done a design like this before. The decal was listed as a project in the Silhouette design studio. I have an older machine, so I could only make the dinosaur so big without having to make two transfers and piece together. I layed the shirt out in half with the seams in the middle. Then, pressed on with the iron. I am still in the learning phase of working with heat transfer vinyl.
The second shirt for Alex was to use more of the fluorescent green that I have. This was another design in the design studio. I did it before I went for a run Friday morning. The nice thing with these designs is it doesn’t take long at all. All I had to do was resize and cut. It only took about 5 minutes total to make this one.
The next were two tank tops for me. I bought the tanks at Wal-Mart for $5. They are very comfortable! The first is to match Paul’s Hoptopia shirt. I do not have a picture of the back, but I put three hops going down. These were hard to iron on as the seams were so close together and I couldn’t get a good press down on the design.
The second was a design from the design studio. I have liked this design for a while.
The nice thing that I like about the design studio is you can buy a single image. Most are around .99. You can also create your own design as well.
Stay tuned for the second post with the signs that I created this weekend.
Make today great,
