I wanted to make a Christmas shirt for my boys this year. It’s not very traditional but that’s what I like about it. Want to make one of your own? Here is what you will need:

  • Shirt (long or short sleeved)
  • Heat Transfer Vinyl
  • CAMEO or Portrait
  • Hook Tool
  • Iron and thin scrap of fabric


First, I measure the shirt to determine the right size of the design. From here I head over to the Silhouette Studio.  I ended up using a deer head I found in in the Silhouette Online Store.


I copied the deer 9 times and put them in rows of three.  I tried making sure they were evenly placed by using the grid view.


Once my design is ready to go, I turn on the CAMEO. I will be cutting the heat transfer vinyl without the mat so I choose load media on the screen.


I am all ready to cut! I send the design to the Silhouette and let do it’s cutting.


Once my design has been cut it times to weed.  Using my hook tool, I pull off the excess vinyl that I do not need!


Once my design has been weeded, it is time for placement and to iron! I place a thin fabric over my design and press. I  remove the plastic transfer paper, replace the thin fabric and press again.



In the Silhouette Studio, I make a circle and cut it out on red heat transfer vinyl. I place it on the last deer and press.





Grab a pair of sunglasses, your shirt, and snap a few pictures!
