Happy Thanksgiving (+ a DIY Clemson shirt idea) wishes you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I created the design above using the software that came with my Silhouette cutting machine, cut it into orange flocked heat transfer vinyl, then applied it to a cheap purple shirt from Target. 'Flocked' vinyl has a felt-like velvety texture to it. It took all of 30 minutes tops to make and was a fun, unique shirt to wear to Thanksgiving festivities (especially around our Gamecocks family and friends).

Here is a basic image file of the design. If you have an electronic cutting machine like the Silhouette or Cricut, open this image in the design software and use the tracing feature to turn it into a 'cut' file.

Click on this image. Right-click and select
'save as' to save the image to your computer.

If you don't have an electronic cutting machine, you can still insert this image in a Microsoft Word file (or something similar), fill it in with orange color, print onto heat transfer paper using an inkjet printer, then iron it on a shirt.

For both options above, check the instructions for the vinyl or paper you use. Some types require you to flip the image horizontally so it's backwards before you iron it on a shirt.

Other options for crafting with this design...
  • Vinyl stickers to stick on mugs, wine glasses, dishes.
  • Print it out, cut out the design, and use as a stencil with fabric paint on a shirt
  • Print out, grab some orange and purple crayons, and keep the kids busy coloring while you 'virtual shop' tomorrow

Please only use this design for personal purposes - this is not intended for commercial use and is licensed through the crafter's license through Clemson University.

If you do create something fun using our Paw Turkey design, please be sure to share with us on our Clemson Girl Facebook page!

Oh yeah... speaking of shopping... we have lowered the prices of our clear, plastic Clemson totes for this weekend only. You can purchase one of our customized, clear Clemson bags for a super low price. These will make great Christmas gifts for the Clemson Girls in your life... and you may have to gift them early so they can be used for the ACC Championship Game in Orlando. Visit this weekend to take advantage of these temporary low prices, in addition to lowered prices on other Clemson Girl goodies.

Happy Thanksgiving and happy shopping! XOXO
