Au Revoir Graphic Tee


I am loving the graphic tees that are so popular right now. When you can make them yourself it's even more fun because the possibilities are endless.

One of the advantages of being crafty is that when I see something I like I can make it. And usually I can make it for a fraction of the price. As I took my daily stroll through the photos on People.com I saw this t-shirt worn by Kate Bekinsale and my daily mantra of "I can make that!" ran through my head. The shirt she has on is $78. I made mine for less than $5!

Source: People.com


Supplies: Old Navy T-shirt, Silhouette Cameo, Black Heat Transfer Vinyl, Iron

First, I designed the text using the Silhouette program on my computer. I simply played around different fonts until I liked the way it looked. REMEMBER: You will need to reverse the text for this project!!



Next, I measured the front of the shirt to determine the size of the text.

I placed my Silhouette Heat Transfer Vinyl shiny side down on the cutting mat, set my blade to 9, and cut the design 3 times to ensure a complete and sharp cut. Then I weeded the extra vinyl off of the clear backing to leave on the text.

Finally, I placed the vinyl where I wanted it on the shirt shiny side up this time. I used a dry, hot iron on the vinyl until the clear backing peeled off cleanly. I wasn't sure if the fine print font I had chosen would work well but it turned out perfect.



This is an example of how I would style my shirt. How would you style yours?
