Our family is getting ready for some FOOTBALL with the playoffs in just a few hours.
Now that the Green Bay Packers are out, our devotion has switched to the Denver Broncos…at least for Lily and I. She has been asking for a Broncos jersey but it just hasn’t happened yet. A true fan needs to be properly outfitted so today, my fabulous 11 year-old daughter made this adorable t-shirt in about 15 minutes. She is such a rock star that I had to share her handiwork. Now this tutorial is requires a Silhouette or Cricut machine:
- navy t-hirt
- iron on vinyl in watermelon and white
- silhouette/Cricut machine
- First step is to create your design. Lily chose a font called “I wish I were Taller” which I found funny.
- She added a black and white Broncos graphic. She used the Trace function in the Silhouette software to highlight the areas she wanted the machine to “cut”.
- After tracing the image, she deleted the image leaving only the outline.
- She used the Transform function to Flip Horizontally the image. This is necessary because the you want the inverse image as it will be ironed on.
- Cut the design with the Silhouette machine
- Remove the background vinyl leaving only the desired image on the clear plastic backing.
- Set iron on hottest dry setting.
- Put image on desired location of shirt.
- Iron for 10-15 seconds or follow instruction of your vinyl. Use hard pressure. Keep it moving so as not to melt the vinyl.
- Remove plastic.
