Strawberry Shortcake Shirt


My daughter is only 1 1/2 years old but she is in LOVE with Strawberry Shortcake!  I was so excited to see that Silhouette now has some Strawberry Shortcake designs!  (I was going to do a Strawberry Shortcake party for my daughter’s 1st birthday, but I couldn’t find designs I liked for the decor.  She will definitely have a Strawberry Shortcake party for her 2nd birthday now!)  When she saw these designs on my screen as I was working on this project she got so excited and started saying “Strawberry Cake!”  As soon as I finished this shirt she was trying to put it on.  I’ve never seen her so excited about clothes!

Here’s how I did this project…

  • I found all of the designs in the Silhouette Design Store that I just had to use.
  • I made sure the cut lines of each design were set to ‘cut edge’
  • Then I turned on the registration marks.
  • I used the little eye dropper tool in the fill color window to pick up the exact colors from Strawberry Shortcake, then filled each of the hearts.
  • Next, I printed out the designs on the printable heat transfer material for dark fabrics.
  • Then, I placed the printed heat transfer on my cutting mat, loaded it into the Silhouette and clicked cut.

Now here is the tip I have for you today….if you are using a regular pressing cloth instead of a towel to press this on, make sure that it has cooled completely before removing the pressing cloth or you could tear your heat transfer material.  I learned that the hard way.  🙂

This was my first time using the printable heat transfer material and I am really impressed with it!  As always, Silhouette and it’s products have helped me make a very professional looking project.


Whenever I make a project with a special media I like to use every inch I can. That is why I decided to cut 2 Strawberry Shortcakes, her pets and the hearts.  I can always find a use for them somewhere, like on this little tote bag…




My daughter loves purses so I used the extra designs I’d cut out and made her this little tote bag to go along with her shirt.  This way I could make her something fun with the Valentines day design and she can still wear her shirt after the holiday has passed.

I have been married to my fabulous husband for 4 1/2 years and last June we were blessed to adopt our beautiful daughter, who is now 9 months old. I have always loved creating things, which led me to get my degree in Fashion Design. I love to make anything that can be worn or used to decorate my house. I also have a love of organization.

  9. Such a cute project! When you use the printable HTV, can you print it using an ink jet printer or does it have to be a laser printer?

  10. I have printable fabric but it isn’t really good for using in clothing that would be washed often. So I am very curious about how printing the color on the vinyl and washing work?

  11. this is so cute!! how do you wash it? mine faded after just one wash
