Hi friends – a quick post tonight. I just wanted to call out the new Silhouette/Cricut cut files designed by Megan at Made for Mermaids. The awesome thing is, 100% of the proceeds from these are donated to local Houston charities.
I made a quick Mama Nina in shirt length last night – seriously, 1.5 hours from cutting to hemmed, this is lightning speed for me, the slow poke! I decided on this one again because I used somewhat flowy triblend I had laying around, and I figured it would hang nicely. Plus, since this was my second HTV project, I wasn’t so sure about my iron + rayon spandex, which would have been my first choice for this pattern.
I’m super pleased with how the vinyl worked out though! This was my first time using the metallic one with my Cameo 3. I did have to adjust the default metallic HTV cut settings a bit to get the lines perfect, but it was pretty easy. I also had to press REALLY hard with my iron to get all of the tiny letters to stick, since I don’t have a heat press. But more on all of that when I finish my Silhouette review soon. 🙂
I ended up accidentally stretching out the back neckband when ironing it, so it isn’t my best sew ever in terms of fit, but it’s cute and supports those affected by the recent natural disaster, so what’s not to like?
I paired it with my trusty denim SOS pants. I realllllly need to make more of these. I wear them an embarrassing amount of times…per week. Ha!
The cut files are still on sale, grab them here! The pack includes multiple designs, or you can just buy one individually. Any help is appreciated and I’ve been so amazed at the many ways the sewing/crafting community has come together to help those in need the past few days. So inspiring.
