Surprise Silhouette Cameo T-Shirts

Hello Halloween lovers! Welcome to fall and the month where you eat too much candy.  Woohoo! I have been known to stretch the Halloween season around my house and let my kids dress up in Halloween garb way before and after October 31. These fun t-shirts are sure to make your kids giggle, and possibly get them out of their costumes for a minute. What’s not to love about a shirt you pull over your head? If you own a Silhouette Cameo machine, I am providing you two options with a mummy and a Olaf design. My kiddos designed these themselves.

Supplies:

Plain T-shirts
● Iron on white vinyl
Silhouette Cameo machine
silhouette mat
● stick pin or other weeding tool
● iron/ironing board
Olaf file
Mummy file
● Press Cloth

Step 1. Pre-wash your t-shirt.

Step 2. Cut out your vinyl. Make sure the shiny side is down on your cutting mat. I always make sure I do a test cut when I am working with iron-on vinyl because some are thicker than others.

Step 3.
Once the file is cut out start weeding your design. This is just a fancy word for removing the areas of vinyl you don’t need. I use a stick pin to do this.

Step 6.
Once cool peel away the sticky backer sheet. Then take your press cloth and iron on top of the design. Turn the shirt inside out and iron the opposite side too, just to make sure you get a nice adhesion.

Step 7.
Next, making sure the shirt is inside out and your design is facing the right way, iron your face on the underside of the shirt. Repeat steps 4-6.
