“Be the good” Heat Transfer Tee
First Cut

“Be the good” Heat Transfer Tee

I came upon the sentiment on this shirt several years ago and it became one of my favorites. So when I stumbled on a shape in the Silhouette Design Store with the phrase “Believe there is good in the world,” I knew I had to make something with it.

One of my biggest goals is to raise my son to “be the good” in the world – while I want him to be successful, I also want him to help others and make the world a better place. Isn’t that what all parents hope for their children? So I made this cool shirt for him with a mixture of flocked and smooth heat transfer material.

  • Layering materials adds extra dimension. Just remember to use smooth heat transfer material first and flocked heat transfer material on top. Design it all in Silhouette Studio together to ensure the size and layout will work together and then cut separately.
  • To make a portion of the words/letters a different color, simply continue “ungrouping” the shape until all words are separated. (Right click, ungroup) Then, select the words that will be the same color and “regroup” them. This ensures that the spacing and size is the same for all.

Now I want to make myself a matching tote bag. Because we can all use a reminder to be the good in the world.

I’m a wife, toddler momma, blogger and notorious dabbler. I believe in letting go of perfection and prefer to enjoy the journey and embrace the mistakes. I love decorating, crafting and gardening – and I also believe that nearly anything is cause for celebration. That means I've created more heat transfer T-shirts and customized banners than I can count.

  1. What a wonderful shirt! I love this!

  2. Terrific shirt Kim! I love that you added the globe but made it subtle.

    1. Thanks, Analisa. All those little details were a bit of a patience-tester to pick out, but I really love how it turned out.

  3. LOVE this, Kim! The glove addition is super cool.

  4. Great shirt Kim…I like the subtle globe detail too!

  5. newbie here: so when you ungroup the letters, you first print the red letters on red vinyl , put on shirt- then print black letters on black vinyl and line-up and put on shirt? am I understanding correctly?

  6. This is a great shirt and a great quote, Kim. Love it! And appropriate for any age.

  7. Is there any videos how to do this??? I just get so confused! And my previous heat transfers came off
