Today I’m going to share some shirts I made a few weeks back.
Some times it just feels good to sit down and make a few projects just because.
My daughter started on a new softball team this Fall season and I needed a few shirts. Red is not usually in my wardrobe, so new shirts were in need of some sprucing up. Libby Ashcraft with Libby’s Loft had just posted a Retro Words tutorial and it was one of those must-do projects. It is also extremely popular right now and the method she shows can be done with any bold font that you choose.
Check out Libby’s tutorial HERE on how to create this Retro Words.
I love that it uses several tools in the software such as: Offset, Guides, Knife tool, Align tool, Replicate Panel, Cut by Fill Color, and more.
Click on each of the words above for more information on that tool.
And I couldn’t just create my coaches shirts that were naked on the back, so it was perfect timing that these designs hit the Silhouette Design Store at the same time I was creating this project.
Don’t Stop When You’re Tired by Lori Whitlock – Design #302756
I did change the #Football to #Softball and it worked perfectly!
It’s How Big You Play by Lori Whitlock – Design #302758
And the favorite by everyone this season was this one.
If At First You Don’t Succeed by Lori Whitlock – Design #302764
The coaches and parents sure loved these shirts and I received a lot of compliments on them.
Sometimes, you just have to put everything else aside and just make a few projects for yourself! I hope that you have some time to play with your Silhouette machine soon!
Have you created this effect for yourself or others?
I would love to see your projects feel free to post on my Facebook group at Silhouette Secrets with EllyMae.
