This Thanksgiving totally feels like it came out of nowhere. We are less than 24 hours from going out of town to visit family and I am a hot mess express over here.
Not only have I not made myself the shirt that I wanted to wear for Thanksgiving, but I haven’t even finished the packing. Can you sense the panic that’s working itself through my body right as I type this?
The one good thing I’ve got going for me is that I have the perfect design ready! I know that this shirt will not only be popular because other mama’s tend to feel the same way, but it’ll be a shirt that I can pretty much wear all year round.
I am so happy to be sharing this free SVG cut file with you today. I know that if you haven’t made yourself a shirt for Thanksgiving, then this will be coming at just the right time for you.
If you’re done and ready to go for Thanksgiving and you’re already pretty much past Christmas and into the new year, then save this for next year. I’m sure we will all still be feeling like “kind of a mess” then.
So today’s freebie will actually be two different freebies. I am sharing with you the multi-color design that you see in the first photo above, and I am also sharing a “grunge texture” one.
If you actually weld the first multi-color design, you could actually make this 3 freebies. You’d have the multi-colored one, a solid one and then the grunge texture one. So feel free to make this however you’d like.
I’m thinking i’m going to go for the solid design and just cut it all out in one color. I won’t have much time to get this done before my husband gets home today, so I’m positive this is the quickest way to make this design.
I’m not sure how it happened, but grunge textures have become all the rage in the design world. People love the way shirts look when they’re finished.
If you’re wondering how I created this grunge SVG file, it’s actually pretty simple. I just used my Distress / Grunge Textures Kit that you can purchase on DesignBundles.net and then I just “subtracted” pattern away from my design. I know this sounds a little bit complicated, but I promise you it’s not. Stay tuned as I may make a DIY tutorial on how to do this in the near future, since it’s so popular.
Also, here’s a tip if you’ve never used a grunge design before. Try to not use glitter or other premium types of iron-on vinyl.
The best vinyl for grunge designs is Siser Easyweed Heat Transfer Vinyl which I like to order from one of my favorite vinyl shops, Expressions Vinyl. The reason that Siser Easyweed brand works better is that the vinyl by nature weeds easy and because it’s so thin, you won’t have any trouble pulling out the tiny specs of vinyl. Trust me on this.
Remember that if you’re in a pinch, and last minute like me, you can now find Siser brand vinyl at your local Michaels. They come in rolls of 3 feet I believe and so it seems like they’re more expensive than if you buy them online, but they’re not “that much” more. Plus, they’ll have a ton of colors for you to choose right there.
If you go online to their website, you can even see what’s available in store before you head out, this will save you a trip in case they’re out of the colors you’re looking for. You’re welcome ;).
QUICK NOTE: You can use these designs for personal and commercial use. If you’d like to share them with your friends (I’d LOVE THIS!), I do ask that you just link them to this post and help support my website. Also, please don’t upload it to a print on demand (POD) website, or send it for mass production.
Thank you so much for your support, and if you make anything with this design, tag me @PerfectStylishCuts, I love seeing your makes.
