Silly New PJ’s with Heat Transfers!

(The promotion runs May 17 – 25 so don’t wait!)

One of the fun things about having a teenager (besides the fact that you can send them to the grocery store when you’re out of milk) is that they are old enough to have their own sense of humor.
For some reason both my kids have developed these snarky, sly senses of humor. I have no idea where they get it.
Ok I do.
It’s Mr. F.T.’s fault.
Yep babe – I just threw you under the bus.

So for our new pj’s, here’s what we came up with:

We went hunting for inspiration at Snorg Tees – an online shop with hilarious t-shirts.
(Disclaimer – some of the shirts there are edgy/risque/etc. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.)
We picked out these two styles to knockoff:

Hedgehogs Can't Share Everything Is Easier Said Than Done

I switched them up a bit – for my daughter’s I made a different hedgehog and for mine I added some cute little stick figure friends.
(If you’d like the Silhouette files of the designs I made – send me an email (bev(at)flamingotoes.com) – I’ll mail them to ya.)

Silhouette’s Heat Transfer is soooo easy to use!
You just cut out the design . . .

Peel off the transfer material that isn’t part of the design . . .

If you’re anything like me, realize you haven’t reversed your image until you’ve peeled off all the transfer material. Lovely.
Redo the whole thing.

Much Better.
Place the sticky transfer tape down on the shirt.

Iron On . .

Peel up the plastic and your transfer should be ironed on to your shirt! If it’s not, put the plastic back and re-iron.

I couldn’t waste the extra little hedgehog from my unreversed transfer – so I ironed him onto the back of the t-shirt at the bottom.

That’s it – so easy right?? Yet I still felt the need to show you all those steps. ;)

I like my daughters a bit better than mine – I think the blue stands out more on the white.
Doesn’t matter too much – it’s not like a ton of people will see them. ;)

What do you think?
I have a fun sweater re-do coming up this week too!
