…a heat transfer vinyl t-shirt project…or pillow project…or?
So, it’s the last day of the year, and we’ve been in a deep freeze for the last week— -26 to -33 base temps with the wind chill bumping it into -35 to -45 range. No matter which way you look at it, it’s cold out there, so when the owner of the Canadian SVGs & Designs Facebook group [waves to Lee!] issued a design challenge for “winter/cold” designs because of the “freakin’ ccccold temps”, well, I was all over that like skates on ice.
Here are the free SVG & Silhouette files to download, in case you want to make a t-shirt or pillow or something to, um celebrate(?) winter. LOL…yeah, “celebrate”, that’s it.
I designed this to be cut from two colors: white and another color (I used black). When you open the file, you’ll find the pieces of each color are grouped together to make application a breeze.
If you’re cutting this design from heat transfer vinyl (HTV), consider using flocked HTV for the car snow to give it that poofy snow-drifty look.
For instructions on how to cut and apply heat transfer vinyl, follow the directions at the “The Struggle is Real” Toddler Shirt project.
What’s with the hashtag #plugitin, you ask? When it gets cold enough, cars won’t start, so in the colder parts of Canada, we install a block heater under the hood and and keep it plugged in while the car is parked. A heavy duty extension cord goes from the block heater to an electrical outlet located in the garage (if you’re lucky enough to have a garage, but it’s unheated), or on the outside of the house, or there may even be a dedicated outlet on a post nearby.
Where’s my project?
Well, um, yeah, I kinda don’t have one. Yet. I’m at the lake for some post-Christmas R&R. My Cameo is here, but no white HTV and no shirt, so I’ll make my shirt and post pics in a few weeks, once I’m home again.
In case you’re wondering… this is what -27 with a wind chill to -35 looks like from my window right now. :^)
So, light the fire, add some Baileys to your hot chocolate, and keep warm, peeps!
Happy New Year!
