Personalization with the Silhouette

I'm loving my Silhouette! My friend Brooks made me an awesome "baseball mom" t-shirt to wear to my boys' baseball games - and I was inspired to get my boys' baseball gear personalized.

Isn't the baseball mom t-shirt adorable? Seriously. Love it.




And here's the boys' baseball gear.



I used the font Varsity to create their names, being careful to watch the sizing because of the spacing above and below this font when you type it out. Also, make sure to mirror your fonts when printing them on the heat transfer material. I used smooth red and flocked white. The baseball on their bat bag came from the Silhouette store (design baseball_outline_C00450_17986).

My boys were so proud of their baseball gear - they said the other boys would be jealous that they had such a cool mom. :) So sweet!

  1. Those are great, Lissa!! That'd be a great sideline for you, as well! I'm thinking of how I can do the boys Tae Kwon Do bags that way!

  2. Great idea and great results! Makes me a little sad I don't have any scrappy tools like that! Fabulous job, I especially love the Dodgers shirt!

  4. Hi! Did you use Silhouette transfer paper or regular store bought transfer paper?
    Also, did you use the mat?
    Very cute idea!!
    Thanks

  5. Hi Brittany - I used the Silhouette transfer paper and no mat to cut with vinyl. As for the mat, the vinyl doesn't seem to need it but then again, sometimes it does. I have ruined some projects by not using the mat and had to start over. It's a trial by error sometimes!
