SOUS Die-Cut Trick or Treat Challenge...

This week, to keep with the Halloween theme, the SOUS Die-Cut girls are challenging you to use your die-cuts to make a "trick or treat" project!!!

I used the Witch Feet SVG from Miss Kate Cuttables for this t-shirt for my daughter...

Here's a little tutorial for easy reference:

  • Pick out your fabric colors much like you would your paper
  • Measure each one carefully because you will need to apply Wonder Under to each piece before cutting
  • Cut all your pieces - if your machine has a "fabric" setting use that, otherwise use a deep-cut setting to get a clean may still have to trim some strings here and there.

  • Iron your cut pieces onto your shirt
  • Zig-Zag stitch all the way around your images for an applique look.
  • Embellish if you'd like!!!
Here's a picture of my daughter this morning wearing her you can tell, she's at the age where picture-taking is the LAST THING on her want-to-do  I also bought the shirt a size larger because she actually won't be wearing this 'till next year since she already has one for this year.

And her matching hand band & bow...
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Don't forget to visit the SOUS Die-Cut Challenge and play along with us!!!  Also...while you're over there, take a look at the other DT Members and what they've created Trick-or-Treatish!!!
