Hello!  Welcome to another Silhouette Sunday.  Today I want to show you another baby onesie I gussied up  with HTV (heat transfer vinyl).  I photographed it along with the one I showed you last week (or was it the week before?  Heck I don't know, the days are a blur!!).
This cute Silhouette file of an old, old saying  is just perfect for a little boy but it was a tad hard to weed --- and not as hard as some.  When you get to weeding (removing the bits and pieces of vinyl that are not part of your design for any of you not familiar with the term as it relates to HTV) it can be very difficult to see the lines and know which is vinyl to be removed and which is vinyl that stays.  I have been sorting and organizing  craft supplies and a light bulb went on in this old brain when I was in the middle of weeding this file.  I ran across a small, portable light table in my cleaning frenzy and the thought hit me --- that little light table would help with weeding!!  It works beautifully!!!  You could jig something up to work without buying a light table if you don't have one ----that's what I would do if I didn't already have this one.  All you need is a light source under your vinyl that illuminates the cut lines--- and just weed away!  I can't wait to try this on something REALLY hard to weed.  Should make the process much, much easier.
