Camping

I had a couple of requests for camping related items. It is usually pretty easy to find an image on line that can be traced, I usually look for black and white silhouettes.

The shirt started out just being a simple font design(remember to mirror your design) but once I pressed it I noticed I had a tiny stray vinyl outline where I missed vinyl when I weeded, thus the arrows were added to cover up my mistake.

The mugs was simply cutting the design and applying. I made sure I told the new owner to hand wash only and she informed me that when you camp everything is hand washed!

Heat transfer vinyl

About a year ago I bought a heat press. I love cutting vinyl and thought that I could have a lot of fun with heat transfer vinyl. From what I read on line you can have a lot of success using an iron but a heat press is definitely faster and less work. I don’t use it as much as I would like to but when I do it sure is fun.

A friend has a sister who is a Chicago Bears fan, we live in WI, we are not Bears fans. So her sister asked for a Bears shirt for Christmas and this is what we came up with. :O)

The fun thing about the shirts is that the majority of them are just using a font to create the verse and then mirroring it so that it appears correct on the shirt. Most of the shirts cost under $10 to create, including the price of the shirt. The hoodie was a bit more.
