If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you know that I’m a huge fan of all things zombie! Back in 2009 I created a zombie design that I applied to a cardigan with my Print Gocco Screenprinting Kit (awh, I still miss my Gocco!) In 2010, I cut the zombies out by hand with freezer paper and used some fabric spray paint to make a Zombie Invasion Tee for my son.
It’s been a couple years since I’ve done anything with the design so I thought it was high time to dust off the old photoshop files and update the Zombie Tee with my o-so-handy Silhouette Cameo!
Can I just say that this project was 10x less painful with the Silhouette?! I still remember the crazy cramps I got when I cut this out by hand the last time. I think it took me three different cutting sessions with breaks in between to finish the whole design. My poor aching fingers!
The only frustration I had this time around was getting the machine to trace the correct outline of the zombies but now that that’s all figured out, you won’t have to worry about a thing! Make sure you give the iron plenty of time to stick down all those thin edges and when in doubt…iron, iron again!
Just in case anyone else is crazy about zombies (who isn’t?!), here are the files to make your own Zombie Invasion Tee! As always, please refrain from using this and all Tried & True designs for commercial purposes. Be good or I’ll send my walkers after you! :D
