Batman™ Shirt | Analisa Murenin for Silhouette

 

 

Did you know you can find DC Batman™ Comics designs in the Silhouette Design Store? With this Batman™ design and flocked heat transfer material I was able to make this shirt for my little guy in minutes.

 

What you’ll need:

  • Silhouette CAMEO®, Portrait®, or Curio™
  • plain shirt (prewashed)
  • flocked heat transfer material (black)
  • hook
  • iron
  • pressing cloth
  • ironing board

 

Step One: Preparing The Design

 

Resize the design to fit comfortably on the shirt. When using heat transfer material you have to remember to mirror the design before cutting it. This is easily done by right clicking on the design and selecting “Flip Horizontally”.

Step Two: Cutting The Design

 

Heat transfer material gets fed directly into the CAMEO or the Portrait without a cutting mat. The clear plastic side should face down. When selecting the material type you’ll find separate settings for smooth heat transfer material and flocked heat transfer material. Make sure to select the correct one since flocked heat transfer material is thicker.

Step Three: Weeding The Design

 

Once it’s cut you should be able to see the outline of your design clearly enough to weed it. Weeding the design is when you remove all the negative space from the design. The hook tool really comes in handy here, especially with smaller areas of the design.

Step Four: Ironing The Design

 

Place the design where you want it on the shirt. The black part should be touching the shirt and the clear plastic part should be on top.

Once the design is in place you’ll want to put a pressing cloth on top of the design to protect it from the direct heat of the iron. I usually use a scrap piece of fabric, but even an extra t-shirt should do the trick. Use firm pressure to iron over the design for around a minute. You may have to experiment because all irons act a little differently.

You’ll know the shirt is ready when the clear plastic peels up without any pieces of the flocked heat transfer material sticking to it.

This is such an easy to make shirt that any Batman™ fan would love to wear!

Analisa

Hi there, I’m Analisa! I love to travel and explore new places along with my husband and son. When we’re not on the go I’m happily crafting. I’ve been a crafter for as long as I can remember. When I was younger I collected every craft kit I could get my hands on. Not much has changed. I love my Silhouette because it such a versatile instrument for creating. I can stencil fabric with one project, then create stickers for my son with the next. I love experimenting with all it can do.

  1. So cute! I adore flocked heat transfer. (I knew this was your project as soon as I saw it, Analisa.) 🙂

  2. Thanks Kelly! My little guy loves when I use the flocked heat transfer material because it’s fuzzy:)
