The topic: Making the shirts


I use a Quickutz Silhouette (it’s all Allyson’s fault) to cut out the vinyl. Then the vinyl needs to be “weeded”. That means you have to take away the part of the design you don’t want printed on to the shirt.

I’ve got a hook that came in a kit that I got at Wal-Mart. I’ve only got one, so I checked online and they aren’t cheap. I asked Brian if he thought Harbor Freight or Home Depot would have something similar. He said for sure Harbor Freight would.

So, we had dental appointments yesterday morning (the dentist isn’t even a mile from our house). Brian’s was before mine. He was gone by the time I got there.

The hygienist mentioned something that Brian had said I needed a tool for and I had no idea what she was talking about. Well, when she talked a little more, it became clear.

When she was scraping his teeth, he had an epiphany. He asked what she did with her old scraping tools. And she told him what I needed.

I came home with a bag full of teeth picks. Metal teeth picks, scrapers, I don’t know what you call them, but I bet they do a great job of weeding the vinyl.


Hey…if it’s MY fault, share the wealth then, sister friend. smile

Glad to see you’re getting more use outta yours than I am with mine!
