Heat Transfer Vinyl
One of the reasons that I wanted to get the Silhouette was because of it's vinyl cutting abilities. The possibilities are endless! I ordered some heat transfer from amazon (still expensive) and decided to test it out. I'd seen a shirt on Pinterest that Linwood and I joked about that said, "My Wife is Hot." I decided to practice on a couple of shirts that were at Michaels on sale for under two dollars. So I cut the junk on my machine, which worked quite well, and then peeled off the background to leave only the letters that I wanted transferred. I heated my iron and ironed and ironed! Some of it didn't want to come off, so I just ironed more! The end result I was happy with, and my husband looks nice in his new shirt ;) I decided to take one of my parents favorite movie quotes (Princess Bride- I'm not a witch, I'm your wife!) and make a throw pillow for part of my mom's Mother's Day gifts. Actually... I hope she doesn't see this before then! Oh well :) Enjoy the pictures!
