Whatever Wednesday: Not so boring white shirt

I have a ton of white shirts, but rarely wear them because they are little too boring. Oh and because I'm afraid of staining them because of my kids. So I put some pretty flowers and swirls on this one to really spruce it up!


This is how I made it:
1) I cut the design out with my Silhouette. I used the flocked turquoise t-shirt vinyl from Expressions Vinyl.

2) I removed the excess vinyl.

Here's the design, taking off the extra took forever!

3) I arranged the t shirt vinyl onto the shirt before I ironed it on. I've made the mistake of not seeing how it will look before...

4) I then ironed the vinyl onto the shirt.

Here's how it looks all ironed on.

I wanted to add something extra, so I added some rhinestones from the rhinestone starter kit.
5) I cut a little piece of the transfer paper and put a rhinestone on it.

6) Using the wool setting on my iron, I ironed the rhinestone onto the flower for about 45 seconds.

7) Then I flipped the shirt, I ironed on the inside, to set the glue.

8) I did this again to a few other rhinestones.

And now my white shirt isn't so boring!

With the rhinestones, you have to wash the shirt inside out and hang dry.

I love the shirt. Where did you get your Shilouette at and do you like it better than a Circuit? I want to get a Shilouette but they are not cheap. Just wondering. But I love all your items.
