The holiday season is upon us and people all over America are kicking it into high gear when it comes to Christmas preparations. From shopping to baking to decorating our homes, we may as well be employed by Santa himself. Christmas spirit abounds and traditions are underway.
While we’re talking about traditions, lets talk about the tradition of watching Hallmark Christmas movies.
Hallmark Christmas Movies SVG for T-shirts
We all know that all of the Hallmark Christmas movies have the same plot yet we all tune in religiously to watch them. They’re sappy and cheesy yet we are all compelled to watch for some reason. Maybe it’s just the escape from reality and the hustle and bustle of the season. It gives us an excuse to take a break, drink some hot cocoa and kick back before our endless to-do list calls our name again.
Regardless of why we watch, can we all just agree that if we’re going to watch, we should at least be wearing this fun Hallmark Christmas Movies T-shirt.
Lucky for you, I created a FREE Hallmark Christmas Movies SVG for you to download and DIY a cool shirt of your own.
Yeah, yeah. They are probably a dime a dozen at this point but I always like to put my own spin on a design. As always my designs are FREE for commercial use as long as you credit The Girl Creative.
If you’d like to create items to sell without credit, head on over to the shop to purchase your Blanket Commercial Use License that allows you to create and sell without credit.
Don’t forget your hot cocoa either. I got you covered with my Homemade Hot Cocoa Recipe.
Are you wondering how to make your own T-shirt? Here are a few tips to help you get started.
Tips for making a Custom T-shirt from Heat Transfer Vinyl
Electronic Cutting Machine: In order to make your own Hallmark Christmas Movies T-shirt you will need an electronic cutting machine. I am a Silhouette Cameo owner and have been using it since about 2011. I have worked with both the Silhouette Studio Software as well as the Cricut Create Software and have found the Silhouette Software to be more user friendly.
If you aren’t already an owner of either machine, now is the perfect time to buy one. Many Black Friday sales are still underway so just bite the bullet and make the purchase. You won’t regret it. Besides, Merry Christmas to YOU!
Where to Shop for Silhouette and Cricut Supplies
Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV): To make this Hallmark Christmas Movies shirt, you will need Heat Transfer Vinyl (also referred to as HTV). My brand of choice for HTV is Siser and you can purchase it many places but my favorite places to shop for Siser HTV is Amazon or Michaels.
Iron or Heat Press: I don’t own a heat press (yet) so I use my clothing iron for all of my t-shirt creations. It has not failed me yet so if you are a beginner and are feeling overwhelmed by everything you need to get started, no worries here. A regular clothing iron works great. Just remember, pressure and a hard flat surface are your friends.
SVG Design or Cut Files: Here’s where I come in. Now that you have your cutting machine and your HTV, you are ready to get crafting. At the bottom of this post you will find the link to download this SVG cut file. Load it right into your Silhouette or Cricut software and get creating.
In addition, don’t forget to check out my shop that is full of FREE SVG cut files as well as FREE Printables.
