Having a daughter as an officer without hesitation we support our folks in blue.
Dan and I served in the mounted patrol a few years ago and enjoyed serving the county in any way we could. So it’s no surprise I wanted to make something festive for these summer celebrations, especially since our girl is home for good!
I started making shirts for our ministry team and for helpers which helped me practice. I tell ya the company Expressions Vinyl is awesome! I love their videos and special help they give when something doesn’t work. I appreciate that not only for myself but for ones like you who try them I know I am sending you to a great company!
To make this shirt however was a bit more tricky because it was a layered process and adding the BLUE strip made it even more tricky. But, it worked! Using the Cricut Explorer and having the Cricut Design space to put the design together to form this wonderful expression of where the necessary tools to pull this off. I also have a heat press which I have found to be much better than the iron due to the heat intensity. If you are going to get into crafting such products, one must have the right tools!
I did the white layer first, stars second, and the red pulling the one red one-off, ironed on than did the blue by itself. MOM was last.
- Use the Easyweed brand NOT stretch if you have the Cricut press or iron
Red, white , and royal blue, and Black or dark navy blue for words.
Enjoy! It’s fun and make wonderful gifts too!
Love deeper, talk sweeter, and support the ones who protect and serve,
