My sister-in-law, Cindy is turning 60 on New Year's Eve. Her husband (my brother) is planning a great party for her and I knew I needed to get something "special" for her. So, I found a funny Grumpy Hello-Kitty image and thought it would be super fun on some PJ's.
Here is the top that I created. I'll go to out and purchase some bottoms to go with it.
|PJ top created using Square1 Printable Iron-On|
Here is the supply list to create this PJ top:
- Shirt: I purchased a soft long-sleeved shirt from Walmart. Wash and dry before applying the iron-on fabric
- Square1 Iron-On: comes in a package of 3 sheets 8.5" x 11". Purchase here
- Printer: I have an HP OfficeJet 7210
- Iron: use a dry iron (no steam) pre-heated to Cotton setting
- Silhouette: to cut your design
- Wash and dry your shirt.
- Pre-heat iron on Cotton setting. NO steam.
- Design what you're going to put on the shirt. I found this Grumpy Hello-Kitty image that someone else used on the front of their niece's t-shirt. In the Silhouette software, trace outer edge.
- ** FYI - If you want a copy of my *.studio design, let me know and I'll email it to you. Leave me your email address in comments section below **
- Print your design on the Square1 Iron-on Material.
- Set print setting on your Silhouette. Here is a picture of my print settings for the Square1 Iron-On.
- Cut image on your Silhouette. Cuts like butter.
- Do some minor weeding. All I needed to weed was around some of the letters.
- Iron. You'll want to lift and press. Don't move the iron around in side-to-side motions. I held the iron in place for 60 seconds, then lifted and placed in another location until all areas were ironed-on.
And that's it! Super easy and super fun, too!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and product review. Go out and try something new! But, leave me some blog love first!
