Boy Tshirt


I had a plain white Tshirt and I asked my grandson (nearly 4) what he would like on it and he said 'butterflies'.

I created this image in Silhouette Studio. I found a cloud ( digital version of Echo Park Sweet Day) and it contained words such as kindness/ caring/ carefree - words not always associated with 'boyishness' but which are just as important for boys as girls. I used the text feature to add the word 'boy' on top. The butterflies are part of this week's Silhouette free cut file and I used the 'fill pattern' feature to fill them with the cloud pattern.  Then I traced the image and cut it out of heat transfer paper, on the Silhouette Cameo.
