Easter is coming! It’s later than usual this year (April 16), but it will still be here before we know it. And in some (highly uncharacteristic) advance crafting, I actually whipped up a fun little Easter shirt for my son!
I had seen a few variations of these “hopster” Easter shirts while browsing Pinterest and I thought they were so clever and cute! (Get it…it’s like #HIPster, but since he’s a bunny with hipster glasses and a hipster mustache, it’s #HOPster…heh, heh.) So, I decided to make my own version of the design and slap it on a shirt for my 2 year old. It took me less than 30 minutes!
SUPPLIES I USED:
- Toddler Raglan Baseball Tee from Old Navy
- Flocked heat transfer material (see bottom of this post for a special promo and discount code!)
- My crafty BFF Silhouette Portrait
After I put together my #hopster design in Silhouette Studio, I mirrored my image and cut it using the flocked heat transfer material settings.
I love weeding flocked HTV – it’s so easy!
Then I placed the HTV on the shirt, put a thin cloth overtop, and ironed it on with high heat and lots of pressure.
A few minutes later, I had a super cute shirt…
…for my super cute kiddo ;-)
Of course, he wasn’t super excited about posing for pictures. Though he’s already got the “angst-filled” model look down pretty well!
Either way, I think he’s pretty adorable!
