create your own pattern with vinyl

Dudes. I don’t know how this idea popped into my head…but all of sudden I knew that I wanted a shirt that was covered in my glue gun logo!  -it was actually totally easy to create your own pattern with vinyl

Easy…..but time-consuming. I cut out the logo really close together to get as many on one sheet as I could (and I only used one 12×12 rose gold vinyl sheet from Expressions Vinyl!  The cord part of the glue gun is really little so I had to weed it very carefully! (If you are new to vinyl –make sure to check out my new youtube vidoes! )

After it was all weeded (notice…I lost a a few.) I just placed them all over the shirt. You can measure it out–or eyeball it.

 

I ironed them on–and this was time-consuming. Since it was so spread out–I could only iron 3 at a time. so pressing 15 seconds repeatedly got old…reallllly fast! (Luckily, Cricut sent me an easy press–(post coming soon about it) So if was going to make it again-it would be so much quicker!

 

But I love how it turned out…so really…it was time well spent!

 

I decided to make my daughter a Halloween shirt with the same basic idea–but used Bats! So think outside the box! Such a super cute way to make a custom shirt!
