Custom Christmas Pajamas

Custom Christmas Pajamas

Our family tradition every year is giving the boys pajamas to wear on Christmas Eve.  This year I decided to embellish my own. One of the things I love about the CAMEO is the endless possibilities for design.  You are not just limited to one image or design. You can create your own. I love playing around with different typefaces and finding the perfect match.

 

The phrase I used for this shirt was one I saw a few years ago on a card. It stuck with me for some reason and thanks to my CAMEO I made it a shirt!

 

I used flocked heat transfer to make these plain white shirts come to life.

I worked on my design in the Silhouette Studio. I tried out different fonts and graphics until I found one that I liked.

 

Once I decided on my design I flipped the image horizontally.  You will want to have a reverse image you use heat transfer.

I positioned my texts and graphics close together before I cut. This cuts down on any wasted heat transfer!

Using the hook tool I weeded the design. Flocked HT (heat transfer) can rip easily. It doesn’t have the give that smooth does. Just go a little slower when weeding the heat transfer.

I then assembled the text and graphics on my shirt.  Press with an iron for about 60 seconds and you are done!

I paired the shirts with matching pajama pants and it ended up being a cute p.j. set.

  1. Those are adorable! I love the fonts you chose.

    1. Thanks Caroline!

  2. These are adorable Tori! I’ve got to get some of the heat transfer and play with this fun technique!!

  3. So cute – what a great way to personalise a gift. Love this idea!

  4. This is so stinkin’ cute! Fabulous job!

  5. Love these Tori…so cute and festive!

  6. Great tutorial and a brilliant idea! Now you have me rethinking my Christmas pajamas this year. My kids would love a customized set of pjs!

  7. My kids would love personalized pj’s like this! Where did you get the cute striped pants?

    1. I found them at Old Navy. They came in a PJ set. I just replaced the shirt! 🙂

  8. Do you sell the file for the silhouette?

    1. No. Sorry!! It’s pretty easy in the design just using the fonts. If you have any questions on how I put it together in Studio just let me know!

  9. I love these!!! I think I’m going to do these for my kids for Christmas. I would love to know where you found the striped PJ pants.

    1. Thanks Monica! I found the P.j. pants at Old Navy in the toddler section.

  10. Wow, your kids are going to be rockin’ around the Christmas tree this year in these pjs. Well done! And that last picture is too cool!

    1. Thanks Lauren!! They are stylin’ thanks to the CAMEO 😉

  11. How do you get the polka dots on the solid flocked HT?

    1. It is how the tree is designed. When you cut that tree out it has holes in it. So the white polka dots you are seeing is the white shirt underneath.

  12. LOVE THIS!! Tori makes such awesome stuff. I think my husband is getting me a Silhouette for Christmas.. Can’t wait!

    1. Thanks Marni!! I can’t wait to see all the projects you come up with! I know they will be amazing!

  14. Can you create this project using the Silhouette Portrait or can it only be done on the Cameo?
    Kind regards

  15. Love your couture p.j.’s! ☺

    Hopefully this does not sound like foolish questionS but a) when the cut-out image is transferred to the project is there any sign of a transfer paper border/background residue or ….
    b) does it just peel off and only the image is left?
    Reason why I ask is: when doing a inkjet iron-on transfer it is recommended that you leave a border plus there is always a noticeable (shiny) residue no matter what type you use. THANK YOU. -Brenda-

  16. How do you do to maintain your text as a one block and no individual letters?
    Thanks!!
