Hello UTT&D fans. I am Beckie from Infarrantly Creative and I am grateful to be here to show you how to make a Vintage Inspired Silhouette Ornament.

I had made a Chalkboard Silhouette Pillow for my son’s room and I still had the digital file. I used the program that came with my Silhouette machine to design the silhouette. Then I shrunk it to fit inside my 3″ embroidery hoop and added ‘Isaac 2010′ in the Pharmacy font from dafont.com.

I cut out my file onto heat transfer material in a mirrored image.

Then I ironed it onto some cotton linen fabric using some scrap fabric as a press cloth.

I removed the plastic backing and had a perfectly cut silhouette of my son.

Then I hooped it into the embroidery hoop and cut the excess fabric on the backside.

You can either cut out some felt to cover the edge or be lazy like I was and just put fray check on the ends. Then cut a length of ribbon and hot glue the ends one over the other while it is threaded through the top space between the hoop and the pin.

Take another length of ribbon and make a bow out of it and then hot glue it onto the top -

and you are done. It is a cute little reminder of those darling features on a 4 year old boy.
