My Peeps Shirt

DSC_0040-1

I wanted to try Silhouette’s sewable interfacing, too, so I could give you my thoughts on it.

I decided on a quick shirt for Campbell, since I’m positive he’ll continue his streak of demanding mom-made holiday wear.

The chick shapes came from the Silhouette online store.  The font is Aharoni.

The sewable interfacing definitely doesn’t cut as cleanly as the clean cut, BUT there still were not a whole lot of places where I had to trim strings…maybe 2 or 3?  And, honestly, even if I’d had to re-cut every single line with scissors it still would be faster than tracing and cutting manually.  Especially when I forget to mirror image stuff on the back when I’m doing it the old fashioned way and have to cut it more than once.

It was a good thickness for sewing and held stuff in place nicely.

So yeah.  I liked it.

I sewed the letters all messy (on purpose, with my free motion foot).  I’m not sure how I feel about them.

The March Silhouette promotion runs through Sunday.  Use code “CRAP” to get a machine, both kinds of interfacing, and a roll of white flocked heat transfer for $229.  Code “CRAP” will also get you 25% off the interfacing.

  1. LOL My husband and I were JUST talking about making shirts with similar images that said "Don't 'dis my peeps!" :) It MUST be a good idea – these are really cute!

  2. Cute!

  3. I like the messy sewing on the letters. Very cute shirt!

  4. CUTE! I made some that are two chicks, similar to that, that say "DIG ME" and "RULES" (so it is CHICKS DIG ME, lol)
    And I made some that look like the peep rabbits!
    That is way cute!

  5. OMG! Hilarious and adorable! Love it!!

  6. Thanks for the review. I have some of this waiting to be used. I'm debating letters because they will be so small (for a onesie). Good to see and hear about it.

  7. That's so cute!!

  8. I like the messy stitching too. It will look cute after it's washed and gets "worn" looking–nice for a boy especially.
