Fun With Custom Designed Vinyl

Last week my mom and I hit the road for a little mother-daughter time, traveling to Texas for my niece's graduation and, of course, to spoil the grandkids. One of the highlights (there were several) of our trip was getting to pick up my custom printed adhesive vinyl and heat set vinyl from the design contest I won a couple of weeks ago. So a Mother's Day "crafternoon" was in order since my daughter is the one with a vinyl cutting machine.

I really didn't have any 'fantastic' ideas of what I wanted to use the vinyl on, so I decided to cut my business name and some flourishes for tattoos on my sewing machine.

It really dresses up the old gal, don't ya think?

I'm sure these new tattoos will make sewing even more fun!

Of course, I had to update my travel mug with a new decal too. Mom dressed up her travel mug too. She used my vinyl and had her initial cut into the center of a circle.

We also cut out a decal from heat set vinyl to put on a T-shirt. Now I just have to find a shirt I like. I'm thinking this decal might pop on a heather gray, or even a navy, shirt.

In case you didn't see my winning design, called Pansy Parade, that I posted a couple of weeks ago, here it is again.

I'm back home now, laundry is done and everything is put away. I'm working on new designs for a Christmas fabric collection for my portfolio. What are you working on?
