Halloween is coming and it is a fact that you need this super cute ghost shirt. It’s so cute and you can put it on a shirt, a tote bag, a coffee mug…options are open to your imagination! I am happy to share my heat transfer cut file with you as well below.
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!
Supplies Needed for Ghost Shirt:
- Silhouette Cutting Machine (I use the Cameo)
- Black Heat Transfer
- White T-Shirt (or other white blank)
- Free Cut File
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.
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! :)
I have made SVG and DXF files in addition to the .STUDIO3 files. So everyone can have some ghostly fun! Download below!
