I have been experimenting in my craft room and had a go at something I have been wanting to do for ages and that is heat transfer vinyl.
My niece is pregnant and I wanted to make her a little crafting gift so having seen lots of people use their Cameo to make T-shirts etc. using heat transfer vinyl, this is what I came up with....
The first design 'Little Peanut' is one I downloaded from the Silhouette Store by Lori Whitlock and the second one uses a bear graphic I bought a while ago from Etsy by DigitalDesignsAndArt and which I printed out on some iron on heat transfer paper that I bought from Crafty Computer Paper.
I cut them all out on my Silhouette Cameo using HTV which I bought from MDP Supplies along with the onesies. You can buy sheets of the HTV instead of a full roll from MDP and their customer service is really good. I purchased some glitter HTV in pink and gold and there was a problem with the pink glitter HTV. They exchanged it straightaway for me along with the onesie that I had ruined so I can highly recommend them.
I don't have a heat press but just used my iron on a setting between cotton and wool (no steam) so I'm not sure how well they will hold up in the wash although the transfer paper and HTV is washable. A heat press uses a lot more pressure and heat and makes them definitely permanent but time will tell!!
I gave them to her this weekend in these little gift boxes from Reverse Confetti that I decorated...
I cut out the bag liners and tags from Reverse Confetti 'In The Bag' dies that match the gift boxes. The sentiment is from WPlus 9 Blanket Stitched Blooms and the 'hugs' and monogram were cut out on my Cameo.
I had such fun making these that I am going to have a go at a T-shirt for myself using some Gold Glitter HTV!
