Faux Pockets

Hello, Friends!  Marilyn here with a faux pocket project.  I saw several of these while scanning Pinterest and thought I would give it a try.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Square 1 Iron-On - 1 sheet for both shirts will work.
  • Iron or Heat Press - if using a heat press, set it at 325 degrees for 4 seconds.
  • Silhouette Software
  • Silhouette Cameo
  • Ink Jet Printer
  • Blank T-Shirts


Faux Pocket T-Shirts

To make these, first design your pocket using Silhouette software.  I got the pocket outline from a Facebook Silhouette group (Happy Sil) and added the initials I wanted :  first initial, last initial, middle initial.


Use the Monogramm KK SC font to make yours like mine.  I had to ungroup the initials then offset each by 0.01 to make the initials thicker.


Once done with designing, send the image to your ink jet printer and cut using your Cameo.


Decide where you want the faux pocket placed on your tee and heat press in place.


And you're ready to wear your tees!

Thanks for visiting today! ~ Marilyn

Friendship Algorithm T-Shirt

Hello, Friends!  One of the benefits of having a heat press in your home is being able to make your own t-shirts on a whim.   Here is a tee made using the The Big Bang Theory's character  Sheldon Cooper flow-chart on making a new friend.


This particular t-shirt will be worn by my grandson Andrew at his middle school.

Thanks for stopping by! ~ Marilyn
