100th Day of School T-Shirt with HTV


 Tomorrow is our 100th day of school !
And I WILL be there! 
Andrew is off so he can stay home with any sick kids.
The principal said we could wear jeans tomorrow if we wore a 100th day shirt.
So I immediately thought of HTV (heat transfer vinyl) and my Silhouette Cameo!
I decided to do a Keep Calm shirt reminiscent of THIS shirt that I created last May.

First step is to create what you want to cut in the Silhouette Design Software.
This is very easy. For this shirt I simply typed what I wanted then chose the font.
You must be sure to mirror the image ESPECIALLY with text.
 Then double check your settings. It is essential to have the right settings so you cut through the HTV but NOT the clear plastic sheet.
Then you will select CUT, let the machine do it's thing and end up with this.
You will then want to peel the excess HTV away from your letters - this is pretty easy - much easier than regular vinyl!
  
Here I am almost done weeding I just need to get the center of the letters. Then you will peel the plastic sheet with the HTV off of your cutting mat.

You will then center it on your shirt (I chose purple surprise, surprise!)
 I like to put a shirt form inside my shirt for added structure. They are like $1 at Hobby Lobby!
You will hold a hot iron (no steam) on each section for about 30 seconds or refer to manufacturer instructions on your HTV. Then slowly peel away the plastic sheet - if any vinyl sticks carefully lay back down and iron again.
After removing the plastic sheet I like to go over the whole thing one more time with the iron.
There you have it! A custom 100th Day Shirt!
Yikes I was having a bad hair day! My hair is always so staticky and fly away in winter!

Blake has to take in 100 of something in a baggie - he chose Skittles and he gets to dress like he is 100 years old! Can't wait to get pictures of that!

Kaden isn't celebrating 100th day.
Third Grade does 101 Dalmatian Day!
So he has to dress like a Dalmatian Friday and they get to watch the movie and eat puppy chow!
I free hand cut "spots" out of black HTV and made him a shirt.

Find Joy in the Journey,
 Tess

Who is the Krafty Mama?


Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
