Did you see my first promotional post on Somewhat Simple? Here’s the more detailed run down on my 4th Of July rhinestone shirts I made my girls…
My cutie 2 year old’s shirt:
This first one featuring the statue of liberty and text “Home of the Free” was the more difficult of the two. I don’t yet own the Silhouette Designer Software, which means my rhinestone designs are currently limited to only pre-made designs. I wasn’t settling for that, so I free handed the rhinestones for my Statue of Liberty torch. What I did was open a rhinestone design, ungroup each dot and manually move it to the torch. I cut it separately from the rest of the Statue of Liberty, of course, and did my layering on top after I had ironed on the vinyl first. I thought that was pretty genius of me. I wouldn’t do it for a large project though- too time consuming! The font I used for this shirt is a free download from dafont.com called “American Donut”. It has stars inside each letter, I thought that was pretty cute.
My 1 month old’s onesie:
I created these shirts with the rhinestone starter kit, which is the promotion of the month from Silhouette. You can score big on this deal from Silhouette by taking advantage of Somewhat Simple’s promotional code
