Independence Day is 2 weeks away and I thought it would be fun to make some cute 4th of July shirts for my girls using the new Rhinestone kit from Silhouette. This was a promotional post I wrote as a contributor for Somewhat Simple.
This first one featuring the statue of liberty and text “Home of the Free”
This 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.
