Monday, Monday... here we are.   Hope everyone had a relaxing weekend.  Today's post is a t shirt I decorated for
Shaelyn.   She's such a trooper,  always wears what I make even if she may not like it!
Here's what you need to get started.  A t shirt of choice.   The Big Shot machine.  Fabric-  I used out carry over fabric called Springtime Vintage Designer Fabric (still available).   Serif Essentials Alphabet Die,  Heart Sets Sizzlts Die and  Big Shot Fabric Adhesive.

Get started by cutting our all your letters and heart, make sure you while you are cutting them out you are also backing them with the Big Shot Adhesive.  You will cut both out at the same time.  Follow the directions for the adhesive.   It is easy to use.  Just treat it as paper, you will cut it just hte same.  It rolls right through the Big Shot and you can cut them right along  with your letters.  Once all cut, heat up your iron and lay the letters on your t shirt where you want them to be.  After you remove the backing to the ahesive, start to lightly iron the letters onto the shirt.   Seriously that is it!   All done!
Let me know if you have questions!  xoxo

Here is is done,  sorry the picture is a bit dark.
