Boy's Subway Art V-Day Shirt

I received some T-shirt iron on vinyl from Expressions Vinyl and couldn't wait to try it out. I found some plain t-shirts at Target for under $5 each, so I decided to make my kids some Valentine's Day shirts.

Problem: How do you make a Valentine's Day shirt for a boy? I didn't want to use hearts or anything, so instead I tried my hand at making my first-ever subway art. Using my Silhouette, I was able to come up with this:

I seriously love this little boy and all those words just make me smile (so does seeing him in his cute little shirt). But guess what?! He likes it too:

For my girls, I once again let them browse through the Silhouette site for shapes and they decided what they wanted for their shirts. We had a lot of fun and they are happy with the results, and that's what really matters.

I loved working with the iron-on vinyl. I only had to iron it for a few seconds, and the film peeled right off and everything stuck to the shirt. Super easy! I highly recommend using this stuff!


  1. Both are GREAT!!! As a boys mama, I especially love the subway art. How cute are you? Too darn cute!

  2. Super cute! Your kids are adorable!

  3. Great shirts!

    How does the vinyl actually work? Do you cut the picture with scissors and then iron, or how?

  4. That's it ... I'm buying a Silhouette! I've been drooling over all the Silhouette projects in Blogland!

  5. I dont know which part is the cutest
    the shirt
    or the actual models
    SO precious


  6. Those are adorable! I so need to invest in a Silhouette!!

  7. Very cute! There is a robot with a heart in the Silhouette store that I made a shirt for my son for. He loves robots! You can see it here:

  8. I'd LOVE to see a tutorial of how you did the subway art shirt. I'm BRAND new to the Silhouette world and need all the help I can get!
