Silhouette CAMEO 101: Heat Transfer

You all know that I LOVE heat transfer! I love taking a plain shirt and transforming it. I especially love making something personal. For Christmas, we are doing a cousin exchange. My baby has her cousin that is only 4 months older then her. I wanted to make him a cute shirt. So this is what I came up with.

This is how I made it:
1) I got the design all ready in my Silhouette Studio. Then I cut it out of the heat transfer paper.

Did you know that the CAMEO cuts the 12" media but it also cuts the 9" SD media!!
2) I adjusted the rollers to fit my white flocked transfer paper. For the flocked I used the blade setting at 3, thickness 33 and speed 5. For the smooth heat transfer I used the blade setting at 1, thickness at 14 and speed at 8.

3) I removed all of the excess.

4) I then ironed the heat transfer onto the shirt.

I decided to make matching socks too! My nephew is going to look so cute in his new, personalized shirt! :)

Remember that there is an AWESOME deal coming on Black Friday on the new CAMEO! I'm sure that Santa would love to bring you one for Christmas! :)

when you make these, did you wash the garment first and then iron on the images? My images peel off. But I don't was the garments first.

Hi! A few questions for you if you don't mind:

1. What she said above ~ do you wash the clothes first and did you have any peeling issues?
2. Do you use the Cameo heat transfer paper only?

Thanks for the info! I really want to try this on my mom's cameo! :)
