Olivia just started third grade and wrapped up her tutorial before the end of summer! She completed everything from the project to typing up the Silhouette CAMEO tutorial with very limited help from me (except for the heat press part)!
Hi ,it's olivia and today i`m going to do the tutorial on making a matching shirt for my doll. I got this shirt for my birthday and I wanted my American Girl to have one too. When I turned 6 my mom got the doll shirts to make coloring book style shirts for my birthday and she still had one left over!
So first, you take a picture of the shirt you are using. Then, send it to yourself (by email) and download the picture to your computer
Then, open Silhouette Studio and go to 'file' and then 'open' and find the picture you saved.
The picture will be very big so to make it smaller click on it and pull the corner box in.
Then measure your mini shirt on how big you want your design to be.
Go into Silhouette Studio and size your design again so it will fit on the shirt
Then flip the design (right click and flip horizontally) because you need it to backwards to put on the shirt.
Then add your registration marks for print and cut (if you click "M" they come on).
After that put it on your cutting mat and cut it (my mom has the best cut settings in this Silhouette tutorial for printable heat transfer).
Then remove the extra and put your design on your shirt...
Press it on the heat press. My mom helped me with this part.
Then when it cools down peel off the paper part on the back.
Now you're all done!
