Ghost Shirt

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! 

Ghost Shirt using Heat Transfer Square

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!
