I have a little boy who loves robots. His favorite movies and action figures all revolve around these little machines. While watching one of his favorite movies the idea hit me. He would probably love a robot shirt! I searched the Silhouette Design store and found this cute robot graphic from by Hero Arts.
Now I do love that little heart in the middle, however I wanted the shirt personalized. Instead of the heart I added his initial. In the studio software I first ungrouped the image. This allows me to edit any shape from the design.
Once the heart was cut I used the text tool to add the letter B. I used the font Petticoat Black by Scrapnfonts.
I loaded the stencil vinyl into the CAMEO. I made sure my cut settings were set to vinyl and hit the send to Silhouette.
Once the image was cut, I weeded out the design with the hook tool. I then applied the transfer tape to transfer the image onto my shirt.
Once my stencil was on the shirt I used Silhouette black ink and a sponge to paint. I pressed the ink on lightly to give the ink a broken look.
Wait for the paint to dry before pulling the stencil off.
I couldn’t stop there. I also made one for his little brother but instead of using the fabric ink I used metallic heat transfer vinyl. I love the way it shines on the black shirt.
He loves his robot shirt. He even asks to put it on. I asked him what he wanted his next shirt to look like. He just said more robots. I think I have my work cut out for me!
With Silhouette the possibilities are endless for shirt designs. Personalized shirts make the perfect gift for the holidays. Are you planning on making any gifts this year with your Silhouette? I would love to hear about them.
