Make It Monday - Tee Shirt Edition
Last year at this time I didn't have Rose my Cricut yet so I spent the holiday season crafting with corks and toilet paper tubes - not that I'm sorry about that but this year I have Rose and she is working over time. I have gone a little crazy making tee shirt after tee shirt to get ready for spooky season and I thought for this Make It Monday I would share some!
For Halloween Horror Nights I made Eric a Texas Chainsaw Massacre (his request) shirt to match one of the houses and not to be outdone I made myself a Bride of Frankenstein shirt. I purchased the cut files from an Etsy shop, you can find it here and the vinyl came from HTVRont which is by far the easiest and most durable vinyl to work with!
Hard to tell in the photos but the black vinyl I used for my shirt had some blue glitter in it, subtle but very cool. I used the Cricut 9x9 press which takes a lot of the guess work out of settings. I have already decided I want to upgrade to the larger press and get the mini for some detail work!
For Howl-O-Scream I went with a Scream theme as it is my favorite scary movie. I got the cut file from another Etsy shop, find it here. Used the same brand vinyl because it's spectacular. I'm pretty proud of this shirt because I over weeded Ghost Face the first time I cut him so I went back and then added him in last. It could have gone horribly wrong but thankfully it didn't.
I got a lot of compliments on this guy throughout the night and I can't wait to wear both of these during the season as we have our themed movie days on the horizon! The actual shirts I purchased through Amazon. I tested a bunch of types and sizes because they are inexpensive I was less worried about screwing them up. The tank you can find here and the black tee you can find here. Eric provided his own shirt but it worked really well. Keep in mind these shirts were purchased to use with vinyl if I was doing ink transfer it would be different. Let me know if you have any questions and stay tuned for more Halloween creating!
