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.
