DIY Golf T-Shirt and a Silhouette Promotion!

Those of you who know Little Crafter know that one of his absolute favorite nice-weather pastimes is…
mini-golf!!!  This child would golf all day every day if we let him.  Fortunately, we have three courses within half an hour of our house…and about a million when we go to Myrtle Beach!I recently decided to try using some heat transfer vinyl to make him a mini-golf t-shirt.
I used the flocked white vinyl that came in my Silhouette Heat Transfer Starter Kit.  In addition to five sheets of vinyl, a hook tool, an idea book, and an instructional DVD, the kit comes with ten exclusive heat transfer images to download…one of which happens to be two golf clubs and a golf ball!  Perfect!
I downloaded the image and opened it in my Silhouette Studio program.  I sized it to fit his shirt and changed the settings to indicate that I was cutting flocked vinyl.  Then, I adjusted my rollers and fed the vinyl into “Cammie,” {my beloved Silhouette Cameo}, without a cutting mat.  It cut perfectly and was ready to be ironed on!


I peeled the extra vinyl off the backing, then followed the package instructions to iron the transfer in place, covering it with a cloth and ironing until it was secure.  He wanted to wear it right away!  This shirt has become one of his all-time favorites.  He wears it about once a week, and each time, it comes out of the wash looking just as good as when it went in.  {sometimes better, depending on if he played in the dirt or ate spaghetti!}


I am definitely anxious to use heat transfer vinyl again!  I’m thinking of making myself a tote bag or a t-shirt with the one artsy mama logo just for fun.  And, of course, LC thinks he needs about ten more shirts too.  Looks like I’m going to be one BUSY mama!
