I made this shirt to wear on our day at sea complete with a monogram on my sleeve. I am finding that the cutting and layering of vinyl is much like making a card only the tshirt canvas is much larger than a card base!

I made today’s shirt for our Alaskan cruise that sails today. This was a fun shirt to create by layering the cut vinyl in 3 colors and heat pressing. The Alaskan adventure begins!
Today I am sharing theI tote bag that I made for my friends birthday gift. I filled the bag with handmade cards, treats, and a gift card. I am beginning to love my vinyl projects. While making the cards to put in this bag my Big Shot died again. I am at a complete work stoppage so I will have to find a source to buy one because I am unsure when Stampin Up will be introducing their new cutting machine. Until then, I will continue to make shirts for my upcoming 38 day roadtrip!
Yesterday I posted that I started a new hobby with making t shirts using HTV vinyl and a Cricut Maker and a heat press. This is the design that my husband wanted me to make for a festival friends daughter who drew the artwork (see pix on left in the back on notebook paper). This was an even harder challenge that took even longer to clean up the scanned image and convert it to an svg cut file but the finished project complete with 7 colors of vinyl turned out great.
I have taken a break from card making to take on a new hobby- creating SVG files and cutting the image on vinyl using a Cricut Maker and then heat pressing them onto tshirts. This shirt was one of the more difficult images that I did. My husband and his brothers go on an annual Morgan Man Outing (aka MMO) and his dad always made generic tshirts for the event. Well Bob is no longer alive so my husband decided he wanted to take on the annual tshirt project and step it up a bit. So he bought me a Cricut for Christmas that I really did not want and it sat in the box unopened until mid July when the talk of the MMO tshirt came to light. My husband had it in his mind that the Cricut would magically make his idea happen. He had a photo of the cabin in Hocking Hills that they were staying at and wanted that true to life picture converted to his t-shirt design. Well that meant we had to open the Cricut box and figure this project out! Many man hours learning the Cricut design software and understanding the the differences in vinyl and the tshirt making process and even purchasing a commercial heat press we finished the tshirt and were able to finish 11 tshirts in a rainbow of colors.
I have been on a kick lately to use up old product to make room for new and made thes two cards from the now retired Broadway Bound and and leftovers from the Broadway Star Paper Pumpkin kit.
Happy 25th of the month so that calls for a Christmas card. I did a fun fold corner fold card so that I could show off both sides of the retired Christmas Around the World DSP. I added a label from Stitched Labels Die #146828 to add the sentiment from the Candy Cane Season (Retired) Stampin Up stamp set. I added other labels form the Stitched Shapes Dies #152323. I added the corner border using the image from the Make a Difference #146676 and Candy Cane Season stamp set.
