Good Egg t-shirt TUTORIAL

  i’m sure y’all have heard that the Silhouette can now cut fabric using special interfacing. let me tell ya, it.is.better.than.sliced.bread. yup! and totally addicting! ;) i made Baby H a “Good Egg” shirt with it. {don’t ya love the look on his face! cracks me up}

i totally love that chevron egg! it’s so perfect for a boy.


Things I used:

  • Image: patterened_eggs_C02847_1
  • Font: Ariel
  • Interfacing: Clean Cut
  • Carrier Sheet: thick media
  • Cutting Cap: Pink
  • Scissors
  • Teal Cotton Fabric
  • Baby Shirt
  • iron


First iron your fabric to the interfacing with the wrong side of the fabric against the rough side of the interfacing. Iron for 2-3 seconds. Let the fabric cool, then remove paper backing. Apply fabric to a Thick Media Carrier Sheet.

 Add your image {Patterned Eggs} to your Silhouette Studio document. I like to show the gridlines set at 1″. That helps me size my images correctly.

 Select your Patterned Eggs, then right click and select Ungroup.

 Delete all unwanted cuts individually. Then hold down the Shift key and click on all the cuts you want to group together again. Right click and select Group to keep all the cuts for the chevron egg together as they are. Then resize the egg to your desired size using the gridlines as a reference.

 Add your “Good Egg” text below the egg and then send your document to your Silhouette to be cut. When using the Interfacing, you’ll want to change your cutting settings: cutting speed to 3-5 {i use 3} and cutting thickness to 25-30 {i use 30}. You can also click the box to have your Silhouette double cut the image if you want. {with  my lightweight cotton, i did not double cut}


After you cut out your image, you may need to use scissors or an exact-o knife to trim a couple threads.


Place your Chevron egg and lettering with the interfacing against the shirt and then iron for 8 seconds.

Then put that “Good Egg” shirt on your adorable egg… errrr baby! Great shirt for Easter AND year round!
**note: Silhouette recommends hand sewing around the Clean Cut Interfacing. i opted not to. i do not know how it will wash.**

    Super cute shirt!! I have a quick question – I am a new Silhouette owner (yippee) and I noticed that you said you used the clean cut interfacing and didn't sew it to your shirt. I have only used the sewable interfacing on fabric and have sewed it . . . I was wondering if you had washed this yet and if it stayed on the fabric. I would love to be able to do some fabric items and not have to sew them on:-). I was just following the instructions on the interfacing but I know that sometimes other ways work too:-). Thanks!!!

    Hi Linda.
    My precious hubby bought a Silhouette Cameo for my Christmas present. I’m going to love it, I’m sure. sew and I want to use it for appliqué and other fun stuff. So, if you have any suggestions, let me know.

    Also, where do you get a thick media carrier sheet?

    Thank you,
    Judy
