[Silhouette Project] st. patrick's t-shirts

(yes someone is sassy... and needs her bangs cut)

Do you have your green shirts ready for the BIG day??
We pulled out the silhouette and our favorite product, the heat transfer and whipped up a few.


products used: Silhouette Flocked Heat Transfer in white + green t-shirt
fonts usedCowboys + Serifa BT
Type LUCKY in the font Serifa BT. The size is shown in the above photo. You will also need to adjust the Character Spacing too.

 U is in the font Cowboys. Size is shown above. 

Right click and select Mirror Vertically.
After you have your image cut you need to peel away the excess.

Then just center it on your shirt where you want it. With a thin rag on top use the iron to heat the transfer.
Then comes a little secret we've found helpful. Let it cool. Then peel back the backing. If you come across a part that hasn't adhered to the shirt yet, just repeat the steps until everything sticks.

  1. Where do you get your heat transfer and vinyl? I order mine from the silhouette website, but do they have it at Michael's or Hobby Lobby?

  2. Your kids are just adorable and those shirts ROCK! Man I love that machine...sometimes I wish I would have gotten this instead of the cricut..:)
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. LOVE them! I wish I was 1/10 as creative as you girls are!!! Thankfully, I have your blog for inspiration!

  4. I am soooo in LOVE!! May have to make some of these for my kiddos!


  5. I also have a question about the transfer sheets. Would they work in a Cricut? I have Design Studio, so creating the cuts wouldn't be hard. Where do you get the sheets?

  6. These shirts are...ADORABLE! As are your children! :)

  7. as far as i know you can only get the vinyl and heat transfer from the silhouette website. i wish we could just pick it up at the craft store... maybe someday! :)

  8. WOW! I just found your site and I love it. I spent about 2 hours looking through your archives. You are very creative. I am inspired!

  9. Love it! I SO need a Silhouette so that I can do heat transfers . . . and so many more things :)

  10. I love your idea for shirts. I have been wanting to make my kids some shirts, but haven't had much luck finding a plain green ones.

    Did you know you can change project layout from landscape to portrait? It might make it a big easier to work with.

  11. Love the saying on the girl tee! So cute!

  12. love these shirts & your blog! Where did you get the shamrock image?

  13. lol nevermind i reread & found my answer

  15. Love the "Pinch Proof" design! Would you ever consider selling the design, ready to apply to a t-shirt? My daughter would love a shirt like this.

  16. Great Idea!
    I think that here, in Spain, i will celebrate St Patrick's day with my pupils, thank you for sharing!

  17. These are amazing. I've got to get a silhouette because I keep seeing so many great projects with this baby! Thanks for sharing!!
