Christmas Pajamas- Official Cookie Tester
Every year we give our kids pajamas on Christmas Eve, so they can wear them on Christmas day. It’s a fun tradition and the kids look forward to it every year. They love getting new Christmas pajamas. Some years they are actually Christmas themed and some years they are just regular. I always get a new pair too (my husband does too) and it’s been awhile since I had actually Christmas pajamas, so I decided that I wanted some this year. I found these adorable Christmas joggers at Ross, so I knew that I wanted them. So I made up this fun official cookie tester shirt to go with it.
Here is a quick video to show you the process of how I made it:
This is how I made the official cookie tester shirt:
I started with a plain white shirt that I got from Walmart and then some heat transfer vinyl. I used several different kinds. I used a buffalo plaid in bright red, stretch HTV in black and Easyweed HTV in chocolate and green. When I make shirts I like to use the stretch HTV. The only time I don’t use the stretch is when I don’t have the right color in it, like in this case. The stretch is great for shirts because it stretches and moves with the fabric.
Using my Silhouette CAMEO, I cut out the design out of the different heat transfer vinyls. I mirrored the image and cut it with the shiny/plastic side down. I used the designs from here. I used a couple of the files to create the shirt.
Before I pressed the HTV onto the shirt, I arranged it onto the shirt to make sure it was in place.
Using my heat press (you can also use an iron) I pressed the HTV onto the shirt. First thing I did was pressed the shirt without the HTV to get all the wrinkles and moisture out of it. I then put on the vinyl one layer at a time. Because of the plastic, you have to do each layer separately. As you can see, I did the official first and then did the cookie next. I pressed each layer for 15 seconds at 305 degrees.
In between each layer, I used a heat press cover sheet. You can layer Easyweed HTV, so on the gingerbread man, I just put the face and clothes directly onto the body. Once all of the vinyl was on the shirt, I then moved the shirt on the press and pressed it again, just to make sure that I got everything pressed on. You can see that in the video.
And that’s it! It’s so cute and super easy to make!
Here is the official cookie tester shirt with the Christmas joggers that I got. I’m excited for my Christmas pajamas this year!
