Adventure Awaits T-shirt

I recently purchased a cute t-shirt to put in my son’s Easter basket. But it came in a 2 pack and the second shirt was a plain peach pocketed tee that I wouldn’t have bought if given the choice and didn’t really see me dressing him in very often. So, being the crafter that I am, I decided to make it into something I would like to dress him in. I googled T-shirt ideas and came across this shirt that I was just going to recreate with the words adventure awaits (but without all the yellow details).

I traced the continental outline in Silhouette Studio, but when I typed the words, they didn’t stand out very well from the outline, regardless of what font I used. Then inspiration struck and next thing I knew, I was stretching letters this way and that to come up with the final design.

The compass design is done with shiny gold htv

I had a hard time with the ‘E’ at the end of ‘adventure,’ and am still a little on the fence about the design, but overall, I’m happy with it.

I love it! The design is great. Did you slice the vinyl at the pocket or is it closed up?

The E turned out great, and to draws the eye down to the next words in the phrase. Great job,
