Adorable Baby Gift {using the Silhouette Craft Cutter}

25 Jun
Do you want to make an adorable, custom baby gift? I am addicted to making fabric projects with my Silhouette. They have this medium called Heat Transfer sheets that are so cool! It come in all sorts of colors and you cut out images with the Silhouette and then iron the images on to clothing. And it comes out so smooth. Every. Single. Time!!
My sweet neighbor/friend had a baby boy a week ago and I wanted to make something cute for him. I knew that her kids love dinosaurs so I found some images in the Silhouette Library — all three dinosaurs for $1. I downloaded the images into my library. Then I added some text and inserted the Heat Transfer material. Easy peasy. **Note – be sure to mirror your image before you cut it out!!
The Heat Transfer material has a shiny side that is sticky once you peel the negative space off. Then I flipped it over onto the onesie and ironed the image on to the little shirt. Once the transfer cooled, I peeled the shiny clear coat off and there was the decal — perfect! Each onesie took about 10 minutes to make!
And I just discovered that there is PRINTABLE Heat Transfer material. So you create your image using the Silhouette software on your computer, then Silhouette records the dimensions, you print it on the printable heat transfer material using your color printer, then insert the sheet into your Silhouette and it knows exactly where to cut it. And you iron it on! I need to get some of those PRINTABLE sheets!
Ohhhh – the possibilities! I am learning something new and wonderful every single day!
