We have another fruity craft project and this time it’s all about the lemons because on a nice summers day, what’s more refreshing? Lemon themed slogans like ‘Main squeeze’ I absolutely love at the moment. I wanted to create my own take on this with a simple lemon top. I found this pink top, which I love and I knew the yellow and green vinyl would contrast really well.
Here’s a mood board of lemon themed ideas which inspired my ideas.
You will need:
-Iron (2 dot setting) or Heat Press (150 degrees)
Design your lemon drawing on the cutting machine programme such as silhouette studio along with the text you want.
Cut the lemon with ‘Make’ written inside in yellow HappyFlex.
Weed your design revealing the lemon and then weed out the letters.
Type out ‘Lemonade’ and add your leaf designs to your artboard cutting programme and cut these out in green HappyFlex.
Pre-press your t-shirt to get rid of the creases and moisture in the fabric.
Add your yellow flex to the t-shirt and add greaseproof paper on top. Press this for 10 seconds with your iron or heat press.
Peel away the top layer of plastic and then repeat step 6 with your green flex pieces.
Now you’re ready to Make Lemonade! This t-shirt would be great to tuck into some denim shorts or jeans for a summer outfit!
