Two DIY graphic tees - got my cool lettering down!

I've been waiting all winter to make this project!!

Ages ago now I got the idea for this "happy camper" t-shirt but with the cold and rainy weather keeping me from doing much of anything outside the past few months, I made myself wait till at least the end of March. So the other weekend my t-shirt dreams became reality and I put together this quick Silhouette vinyl heat transfer lettering tee.

A couple months ago I did make my now quite popular "vacation mode" tee (worn here) using a basic all caps font and the Silhouette design program. (I also made this "hello weekend" tee a while back, trying out graphic tee lettering, but since then I've found my font and lettering size!) (I didn't blog about the grey vacation mode tee, but you can see all my other Silhouette projects here.)

It was SO fast and easy this time since I already had the font and size picked out from the vacation tee. I just did a save-as and typed HAPPY CAMPER! I store the Silhouette machine in a file cabinet drawer but it's really easy to pull out and plug in.

I did do an extra step on this tee, as I did on the vacation mode one--I changed the line spacing between the words. It was too big before. I drew vertical lines before I cut the words apart so I could line them up again on the shirt. Here's an in-progress after I had already removed some of the plastic backing.

No actual camping for us yet this year, but we did get out to Forest Park the other weekend and I got to rock the tee with my very utilitarian hiking outfit. The trails were definitely muddy in spots, but it was so worth it to be out in such a beautiful place again! We hiked almost every weekend last summer and I'm excited to get started again.

I also got to pull out the bladder backpack from the coat closet. I never thought of myself as a sporty enough person to need one of those but we bought ours last year (less than $15!) and wow, I love it!!

Comfy, celebratory tee!

I highly recommend the Silhouette Cameo machine (and specifically the vinyl starter bundle) for easy, fun, totally personal projects like this!
