Chillin’ With My Peeps

Cuteness overload – - the post with lots of pictures of my niece and a small shout-out to the project at hand…cause even though the shirt is cute, she’s cuter!

Chillin' with my Peeps

I needed to write the post quick ( sometimes I’m on top of it, sometimes it sneaks up on me) and I knew of the perfect quick and easy project – a peeps shirt!  So then I had to have my mom swing my niece by my house so I could do an impromptu photo shoot – because let’s face it, cute babies make pictures even cuter.

DIY Bunny Peeps shirt

 My original idea was to have 5 peeps because with my kiddos and my niece, there are 5 cousins.  But 5 glitter peeps on a onesie took up too much room – - so I went with 3.  Still cute.  I put “chillin’ with my peeps” at an angle for that extra pop of fun.

You can see my post over there: Glittered Peeps

Peeps are such a simple shape, that this is an awesome hand-cut project.  If you don’t have a Silhouette or Cricut, you can still cut heat-transfer vinyl – you just use scissors.  So it’s good to find simplistic images.  But I have to admit I love having my Cameo and how I can crank out a custom shirt in just a few minutes.

Did you notice she’s also modeling one of my Paparazzi Headbands?  So cute!


About the iron-on vinyl:
You’ve probably noticed, but one of my FAVORITE things to use is heat transfer vinyl.  I stock up on plain tshirts when I see them at thrift stores or on sale, so I always have some on hand when a project calls.  It’s just such an awesome way to add personalization.
On top of that, my FAVORITE type of heat transfer vinyl is GLITTER Heat Transfer Vinyl (because everything needs a little sparkle!) and Expressions Vinyl  (affiliate link) has tons of color selection in that category – you won’t be disappointed.  If you haven’t used it yet, what are you waiting for – try it!

I included several tips on the post over there, but the biggest one is….
MIRROR the text before cutting – - I know to do that, and I still forgot the first time I cut the “chillin with my peeps” – oops!  You do this because with Heat Transfer, you actually cut the back of the vinyl (put the shiny side of the sheet down against your mat) and then flip it over to iron it on to your item.

She’s just learning to sit – - we got a few pictures before she toppled over.   How about that it happened to be her 6 month birthday – so the impromptu pictures can double as milestone pictures.  Bonus!
I used a Bunny Peep clipart and the trace function on my Silhouette – - if you would like to save that step, just let me know and I can email you the file (mandybeez at gmail).

    This is so cute! I could not find your e-mail address, but could you please send me the file you mentioned in this post? ([email protected])
    Believe it or not, I have had a Cameo for about a year and have only used it one time! I really need to sit down and play around with it, but I just don’t know where to begin. Maybe this would be a good first project :)

    This turned out fabulously! Way to pull something AMAZING together in the final hour. (And I totally know what you mean about deadlines creeping up. I have one myself this Saturday. Eek! Better get on that stat.) Great job, Mandy.

    I just tried on onie’s for my nieces new baby. I had so much fun I could go nuts with the vinyl. However, were did you get the shape to cute, or did you down load it? I have a cricut and I don’t recall any of the images looking like these.
