A few month ago I came across some very early and therefore very cheap red and green stripy children’s pajamas.
I know a lot of people do the matching pajama thing for Christmas morning, but so far we never have, not even for the children. But this year I thought it would be fun!
As cute as they are, especially once they would be on my even cuter 5-year-olds, they seemed to be missing something.
So I got a chance to try iron on vinyl! And what can I say – I’m in love! Oh the possibilities! I especially love the flocked vinyl! It has just that little bit of extra texture to it and it seems a little more sturdy too!
Anyway, here’s what I did to the somewhat plain pajamas! Not a whole lot really but now they are personalized and the kids LOVE them! Anna wanted a snowflake on it too, but Max was happy with just his name!
It was really easy to do. I used my Silhouette Craft Cutter to cut out the letters and the snowflake.
Incidentally, if you are waiting to purchase a Silhouette Craft Cutter, NOW might be the time. They are down from $299 to just $174.99 on Amazon right now! That’s the lowest I’ve seen them anywhere so far!
But I digress!
I positioned the letters on the shirts while the iron was heating up. Once positioned I pressed the hot iron on the various parts and pressed for about 30 seconds.
After it cooled a bit I peeled off the clear plastic on top and voila! All done!
Once the Christmas rush is over, I’m going to have to explore the heat transfer vinyl more thoroughly! I can think of so many possibilities to enhance shirts, pillows, fabrics etc
