When you need a new graphic tee... remember how easy it is to DIY?? Silhouette lettering tee

I got the graphic tee bug over the weekend and was inspired to make a new one! I've done tee lettering projects before, but not in a while and not with my Silhouette machine, which makes it SO easy to create designs and text in the size and style you want. (See all my Silhouette projects here.)

So, I pulled out my Silhouette Cameo machine and a newer plain black tee, and made a tee with the sentiments I had in mind at the time!

HELLO, WEEKEND!!

I keep the machine in an empty file cabinet drawer, but it's easy to pull out and plug in for projects.

I played with the fonts and size in the Silhouette Studio program that comes with the machine on CD... there are LOTS of fonts to choose from, and designs and shapes... I've barely begun to test the limits of what you can do! I love working with the vinyl package since the vinyl lettering is so perfect for ironing onto fabric and SO easy to use. The negative space around the letters peels off but the vinyl stays in place so you don't have to place the insides/multi-part letters. (See my most detailed tutorial about Silhouette vinyl lettering here.)

I highly recommend the Silhouette Cameo machine (and specifically the vinyl starter bundle) if you want to make super easy one-of-a-kind designs with iron-on vinyl or any of the other ooooodles of materials you can use with it!

Hoping to try something new (like the Fabric Ink Starter Kit I have but haven't used yet) soon! Any suggestions for projects to branch out with??
