Lil' Drummer Boy T-Shirt Tutorial

to make a LIL' DRUMMER BOY t-shirt
using the Silhouette...

01. Purchase the drum set shape from the Silhouette store.
(and if you hurry... all shapes are 50 cents until Monday!!)


02. Download the free font jailbird jenna from HERE.
03. Type your text and then make sure to mirror everything horizontally.
    (right click + select mirror horizontally)
04. Cut out on the Silhouette using the white flocked heat transfer.
05. Iron-on following the directions on the box.
(note: after you iron for a few minutes, let it completely cool before ironing again)

Hurry because some of them end as early as tonight!!  Good luck.  :)


  1. That picture is hilarious and I'm a new Silhouette owner and have been itching to use a heat transfer-this is perfect and so dang cute!

  2. Are you kidding? IT's that easy??? I made a shirt that was very similar for my son a few months back and doing it with the freezer paper technique it took forever to cut out. I so want a silhouette machine! BAD!

  3. My DS would LOVE this shirt. Now if only Santa would gift me a Silhouette so that I can make him one :)

  4. Do you know if a printable heat transfer would work for this project as well as the flocked? The shirt is spectacular!

  6. Love it! I need to make one of these for my little guy!

  7. I would LOVE to make this for my "little guy". He is a 15y.o. 6'1 and is a drummer for his band. My problem is I do not own a silhoutte(but as a scrapbooker i would love one,$seems to go to college and sports.) Is there any way I could purchase this just as it is ready to iron on a t-shirt for my son to wear for the holidays? PLEASE let me know.

  8. Love it! What a great pic too! :)

  9. How fun, my 4 year old would totally rock this shirt!

  10. i think i've checked your site 100 times this morning... really crossing my fingers, wishing and hoping and praying to be the big winner!!

  11. when r u going to announce the winner? i've been dying all day to find out :o)

  12. I featured this post on my blog if you want to check it out.

  13. I am dying to make this for my nephew...he LOVES drums! Unfortunately I don't own a silhouette or know anyone who does. (I'm working on changing this!) Do you know of anyone/anywhere that I could order this or another custom design from? If not, would printing the image on iron-on paper work or would there be a big difference in quality? I want it to look like something you could find in a store. I've been searching etsy, but can't find anything yet. I'd really appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks!
