Basketball Mom Shirt

I am no stranger to my Silhouette Cameo machine but after two years of working with Silhouette I had never tried the rhinestones.  I was very hesitant because I have never had luck with blinging stuff out before using rhinestones.  Well I tried the Silhouette rhinestone kit this month and let me tell you…I was impressed.  Not only was it easy the rhinestones transferred to the shirt effortlessly.  Amazingly enough I did not lose one rhinestone in the transfer!  So I created a “love, peace, basketball mom shirt.

1.  I purchased the heart, the peace sign, and the basketball rhinestone pattern from the Silhouette store.

2.  Then I cut it out of the rhinestone template kit and applied it to the backer board in the starter kit.

3.  Then I poured my rhinestones on and used the rhinestone positioning brush to push the rhinestones into the cut holes.

For those stragglers I used the Pick Me Up.

4.  Next I adhered my transfer tape to the rhinestones and pulled them up to transfer them to the sticky tape.  applying rhinestones to a shirt

5.  I positioned the shapes where I wanted them and iron them for one minute on the wool setting with a press cloth over the transfer tape.  Then I turned slowly removed the transfer tape revealing the rhinestone shapes.

6.  Then using the Varsity font I cut out “Anderson” on the vinyl and transferred the negative to the shirt.  Then I used the Simply Stencil white paint to silk screen the last name on the screen printed tshirt

7.  I let it dry for several hours and then ironed it with a press cloth to set the ink.
