Silhouette Shirt

Remember, the Silhouette Heat Transfer promotion is still going - - it ends on Wednesday, so don't let the deal get away from you.  Use the code "SugarBee"

 The discount is $219 for a Silhouette and 3 rolls of heat transfer material (savings of over 125 dollars!)

If you already have a Silhouette that you can get 25% off of all heat transfer material.

So, want to see what I made recently??  I had this whole vision in my head for a Summer School Outfit - summer school here is like Summer Camp and my daughter can't wait to go and learn about inventing, cheerleading, drama, arts and crafts, etc.  So I thought I'd made a Circle Skirt and Shirt to go with it.

Well, the combo was a Project Fail - - there's just something about this whole getup that's not jiving with me:
 I used the pink and turquoise heat transfer from the colors in the skirt, but it still didn't "flow" so I added those ruffles around the sleeves to incorporate the skirt fabric, but they were weird.  I also added some rosettes of the fabric on top of the heat transfer, but I liked them.  I think the main problem was that the shirt was too floofy to go with the skirt.

So I told my daughter it wasn't a set after all and that the shirt goes with jean shorts instead.  Much better, right?!?  I took off the weird ruffles and now I love it.  I love the heat transfer and how easy it is to personalize things!!
To make this, I cut all the turquoise flowers and then all the pink ones - - I had them positioned really close on the sheet so as not to waste any.  Then I cut them all apart and positioned them on the shirt where I wanted them - it's that easy!

Stay Tuned to see the new look with the Circle Skirt....later this afternoon....

But your daughter looked adorable in the first outfit anyway :)

I think the first outfit looked fine, but I know how that is when you have something pictured in your mind and it just doesn't turn out as planned. The flowers on the shirt are nice and summery. =)

Cute, no matter what! You have to be happy with your project to matter what we all think. Thanks for sharing!

Both look super cute! I need to get a silhouette.

So cute! Thanks for sharing at Make Something Mondays!
