Beware the power of my Sonic Seam Ripper!

Back in January I had the opportunity to attend the Women's March in DC, with my dear friend Audrey.  I had already made her a pussyhat for the March itself, and since then we've both been gathering and putting aside bits and bobs for each other in commemoration.  I bought some pins from an Etsy artist, bought a few books of images from the March, the profits of which went to Planned Parenthood, and put aside some of my Women's March bookmarks for her.  Meanwhile, I had also gotten a new Silhouette Cameo and planned on making her a shirt.  After Mitch McConnell's iconic words criticizing Senator Elizabeth Warren, I knew it would have to be a "Nevertheless, She Persisted" shirt.  So I printed my first heat transfer vinyl!  Which sat around for weeks, waiting for me to pick up a blank tee shirt.   Roll Eyes

This past weekend, she had a BBQ to celebrate getting tenure this year, and of course I had to bring all the presents.  I grabbed a tee at Target and had my first adventures with ironing on heat transfer vinyl.  It was cut from a shiny pink vinyl.  It definitely took longer to apply than the 45-60 seconds indicated on the package.  More like 2 minutes.  (If you're having trouble getting yours to stick, I recommend doing it longer, THEN letting the project cool for a few minutes, before removing the clear plastic.)  



After making Audrey's shirt, I felt like her awesome feminist husband needed a present too, so I took a stroll through my stash, and came up with a blank blue tote bag.  He's also a professor, and travels 1.5 hours each way to work everyday, so I figured he can always use another book tote!  This one was cut from white flocked heat transfer vinyl, and so I went with a retro 70's font.  I have no idea where the tote originally came from.  It's been in my stash for quite a while.  



Edit: In case anyone is curious about the book titles, I picked up Why I March: Images from the Women's March from Around the World and Why We March: Signs of Protest and Hope--Voices from the Women's March.

At some point, I'm going to have to break down and try that vinyl transfer with the Silhouette. Those look great!
