I downloaded 3 different monkeys from Silhouette; one of them came with a tree. I already had grass in my library. I printed them out on paper first so I could decide exactly how I wanted to place them on the shirt.
So I printed from my Silhouette SD to my regular home printer onto regular plain ol' paper.
I printed this onto regular t-shirt transfer that you can get anywhere. I am VERY NEW to having the Silhouette and could not figure out how to have it cut a line around all the words as opposed to each individual letter and I was running out of patience so I just cut around everything by myself.
(Did you notice the shirt color change? I've decided that since this shirt is for my younger grandson I would put the monkeys on the green shirt, and use his blue shirt for his own train shirt like his big brother's.)
Did you notice how I even wrapped the tails around the tree branches? Let me tell ya... that was not the smartest move I ever made! DUH! What about the paper backing that you're wrapping the transfer with? Ugh... So I have a tip for ya: DON'T DO THAT! :) I won't go into all the details of the frustrating parts of undoing that. It's a lesson I won't soon forget!
Even with the lessons I learned in the process, I like the shirt and the outcome... and most importantly I think the youngest grandson will enjoy it too!
