The AVENGERS T-shirt and Stencil!

Pin It
The Avengers!
For the ENTIRE family!
Who's your favorite?
At my house...everyone likes someone different...except me.
My 4 year old son loves Iron Man, and he's my fav too...but because he is my son's favorite...he has asked that I like Captain America instead.  How can I resist? 
Here's an image you can use for personal use...right click to save off. 
Or PIN it and use later!  :)
If you are fortunate to have an electronic cutting device...
throw the file into your software and tell it to cut it out!  
I've got the silhouette, so here's how I did it.
I feel awesome about this one.  Feel free to comment on my awesomeness! 

I used my silhouette.  Dropped the saved off files into silhouette studio.
Use the trace tool to select the image...adjust the levels and trace outer edge.
Then tell it to cut! 
(for heat transfer, make sure to reverse the image...
I forgot on the black shirts, but they still look awesome!)
I used white Heat Transfer Vinyl.
Weeded out the excess...
Press sticky side to the shirt
I use a thin fabric handkerchief to iron the image first

Then iron straight on the plastic...for about 2 minutes
moving around constantly.
I use the tip of the iron and make sure I get all the intricate parts!

Peel back carefully, double checking that all the edges are ironed down!

Then SMILE!  Because you have an awesome shirt!!!
I got all these shirts at the dollar store!
Cheap is my middle name!
It wasn't too bright...they were stunned with the amazingness of the shirts!
Iron man...shooting!
Okay, so I worked up this series of icons/stencils.
With the "favorite" in the center, slightly larger than the others!
Right click to save off the image...for personal use.

Hulk (no one's favorite at my house...anyone out there love Hulk?)
 Black Widow (My daughters favorite for obvious reasons)

 Captain America (my favorite by default)
 Hawk Eye (Daddy's favorite)
 Iron Man (4 year old's favorite)

 And Thor (10 year old's favorite)

Leave a comment telling me which AVENGER is your favorite!  :)
And if you do end up using the graphic...send me a pic! :)

Linking up to THESE parties this week!

I love it!!! So creative! How does it hold up to washing? That's always my concern with transfers!

So cute- your exacto work is AMAZING! I highly doubt I could "weed out the excess" as well as you did! My boys would love these though, so I will be pinning to give it a try once Valentines Day craziness is over :) Thanks for sharing- glad to have found your blog! Hope you have an awesome weekend

This is a wonderful idea! I am going to borrow it for Nevada Reading Week this year! I run daily activities for the middle schoolers I work with, and this fits perfectly with the theme, Got Books? Be a Superhero...READ!". I'll share pics of the kids working on it. Thanks!
