Admittedly, this is really soon to share another Silhouette project, but I was so excited to use this machine, I signed up for ALL the upcoming promotions – hahaha! And, I’m glad I did because I just found out I get to give away ANOTHER Silhouette Portrait electronic cutting machine!!! The heat transfer materials for the machine are one of the products that I have been drooling over for quite a while! I didn’t have a lot of time to get fancy with this first heat transfer project and I have been wanting to cut out this little bicycle for so long, it had to be done before anything else. The bicycle is one of the images that is included in the free set of heat transfer downloads that you get when you purchase the heat transfer kit. Could it be any easier? I put this bicycle onto a fabric frame that I also cut out with the Silhouette using the sewable fabric interfacing. I first ironed the background frame onto a plain-ish pillow; then I used a really narrow, short zig-zag stitch to go around the whole thing. After the pillow was ready, I ironed on the bicycle heat transfer. Done! You can find a simple, envelope-style pillow tutorial here.
Silhouette is offering a promotional price for their Heat Transfer Starter Kit as well as the Cameo or Portrait cutting machines. You can purchase any of these products through the following promotional link: Silhouette Heat Transfer Promotion . The promotional price is available from June 4-June 15, 2013 using my affiliate code: GIRLINSPIRED . Have fun! I think I might get some of the printable heat transfer material – that looks super cool!
