I am so excited to share with you this super cute tutorial to make a ghost shirt!
Ryan’s nickname is “Boo” so I thought it would be cute to make him a “Boo” shirt for Halloween! The nice folks at Silhouette sent me some heat transfer to use and so I thought this would be a perfect project for it!
Here’s how I did it!
I made up this cute ghost face using the Silhouette Software. It was fairly easy to do. I used ovals and circles and then subtracted the circles from the ovals and rotated them. Then I used the “edit points” tool to make the mouth oval a bit of a kidney bean shape. (If you have a Silhouette and want the file I created, just shoot me an email and I’d be glad to send it to you to use!)
Then I flipped my image horizontally so that it would be mirrored. Don’t forget to do this, otherwise your heat transfer will be backwards on your shirt!
I inserted the heat transfer and cut on Cammie.
Next I weeded (removed) the excess heat transfer from the designs and cut the face and the word “Boo!” apart from one another.
I positioned the face centered on a plain white t-shirt. I set my iron to cotton and then placed a thin towel in between my iron and heat transfer shape. For good measure, I also removed the towel and pressed the image on the shirt directly. Just be sure not to melt the plastic backing of the heat transfer. I carefully peeled the backing off and was left with a cute little fright face :)
I repeated the same for the word “Boo!” and I put that on the back of the shirt!
I think he looks pretty cute if you ask me…oh and the shirt is cute too! *wink, wink*
I barely got the back of the shirt shot…this little ghost is FAST! :)
Disclosure: I was given free product from Silhouette America to use however all opinions are 100% my own.
