Butterfly shirt

By now, you know that one of my favorite things to do is take a plain shirt and put some heat transfer on it and give it new life!  It's super easy to do and I feel like I get new clothes!  

This is how I made it:
1) With my CAMEO I cut out the images.  All of these were from the Silhouette online store.  For the smooth heat transfer, I used blade 2 and thickness 16.  For the flocked I used blade 3 and thickness 33.  
2) I first put the silver flourishes onto the shirt and ironed them on.  
3) Next I put the butterflies onto the shirt.  I used the multi-use paper, so I didn't burn the heat transfer.  
4) Next I put the white onto the butterflies.  I love how it looks on the flocked heat transfer! 
Here is the heat transfer on the shirt, love the colors!!

I wanted to add some rhinestones onto the shirt, who doesn't love a little bling?  I just recently got the new designer edition software for my CAMEO.  It's awesome!!  Here are the additional features that you can do with it:
  • Ability to open, manipulate, and cut .svg files
  • Rhinestone tools to convert designs into rhinestone templates and create your own rhinestone designs
  • Sketch tools to convert designs into several styles of sketchable art
  • Creative knife tools to allow you to clip designs using different patterns
  • Enhanced eraser set to modify designs with more precision
  • Built-in ruler and guide lines for precise alignment and drawing
I had to try out the rhinestone feature!  I used the supplies in the rhinestone starter kit.  
5) I just draw a little loop with the draw tool.  

6) Then I went to the rhinestone page and clicked on the edge button.  It's so easy and quick!  I used the 16ss size.  
7) I cut the image out, I used the blade 3 and thickness 33.
8) I peeled the blue paper and then put it on the backer board.  
9) I then filled it with rhinestones.  
10) I put the transfer paper on the rhinestones and then put it on the shirt.  I then ironed it using the wool setting. 
11) I flipped the shirt inside out and ironed the inside to set the glue. 
12) I did another loop with the 10ss rhinestones.  
And that's it!!  It's like a new shirt :)

Remember that right now, you can get the rhinestone starter kit and the CAMEO for only $269.99!!!

I have a silhouette cameo. I was wondering what the number of the images you used.

Hi I was wondering if the silhouette heat transfer design has remained tightly attached after several washes? By the way, the shirt looks great! You did a wonderful job!
