My Little Pony Tee shirt!

 Thanks to my sister-in-law...we are My Little Pony nerds!
We love MLP, the new Friendship is Magic episodes are sooo cute!
Especially Pinkie Pie!
(full name: Pinkamena Diane Pie)
Pin It
 My little Hailee is like Pinkie Pie to a tea!
So we just had to upgrade this plain old dollar store shirt!
 Take one shirt.  Yes, we found this at the dollar store...no visible flaws!

I made a solid silhouette of Pinkie Pie in Photoshop...you can nick it here.


Here's the process for getting an image to cut out on the silhouette!

Drag your image into Silhouette Studio...
 Use the 'Select Trace Area' tab and highlight your whole image...
it will then appear outlined in yellow.
 
 Then adjust the high pass filter, threshold and scale...
so that the entire image is yellow...but not the background.
 Then select the 'Trace Outer Edge' button, should give you
 red cut out lines all around your image!
You can then drag your shadow image over and delete it!
Then you are good to cut if you are doing a normal vinyl or picture project!
 However, on HEAT TRANSFER VINYL,
the images are cut on the backside of the vinyl,
 so reverse everything before cutting!

Select your image...click the mirror left button.
Position it in place and delete the other image!
 Words must also be mirrored if you are going to say anything on a shirt!

Here she is cut out on our heat vinyl in pink!
Weed out surrounding area.
 Place the plastic side up, sticky side down onto your shirt!
I used a tea towel to cover the image and iron on.
After about a minute of ironing (moving it around quite a
 bit to prevent burning) remove the towel and iron directly
 on the plastic...continue moving your iron!
 Pull the plastic off gently!  Make sure edges are
secure, or replace plastic and iron again.
Your Pony will be all giggles!



Linking up to THESE parties this week!

YAY for My Little Pony nerds! I was one myself and will be again soon I'm sure {when my daughter is a little bigger}. I want to try that heat transfer vinyl too! I tried the printable one, and it faded after I washed it and I was sad. ;)
