Valentine tie shirt

I am so happy I found the silhouette studio software. It is VERY easy.  I thought I would try to cut fabric on my wishblade.  I browsed etsy and saw lots of cute tie shirts for little boys, so I decided that would be an easy project.  I picked up a long sleeve tee at Walmart and a quilters quarter at JoAnns.  I washed both items.  Then I ironed on some heat transfer material on the back of the fabric.  In the silhouette studio I clicked on the draw a polygon button on the right side.

I then drew my tie. A triangle at the top and then a kite like shape for the bottom.  It took me about 3 tries to get one that I liked.

Then I wanted to ad a heart at the bottom, so I used the draw a curve shape button and drew half of a heart. I copied and pasted the half of a heart.  I then clicked the object button at the top and chose transform and the mirror horizontally.  This gave me two identical heart halves.  I moved them together and erased any excess.

I scaled down the heart and moved it onto the bottom of the tie.

Now you are ready to cut out your design.  In the settings you can choose your material and then cut out your tie.  I had to choose double cut to get it to cut through my fabric, I must have had a thicker fabric.

The last step is to iron it on.  Be sure to use a hot iron and only iron from the front side.  I love how it turned out!  A few days after making this we saw a little boy getting his picture taken in the same kind of shirt.  His Mom obviously had great taste.
