I use two different kinds of vinyl because that’s what I had, but heat transfer works best!
1
Using the top of a cup, cut out one eye.
2
Using the bottom of the cup cut out a second eye.
3
Using smaller circular objects, cut black circles for center of eyes.
4
Place eyes on shirt and plan out eyebrow. Make a paper pattern then cut out of red vinyl.
5
Plan and cut out paper pattern for mouth then cut it out of blue vinyl.
6
Iron heat transfer vinyl to the shirt.
7
Peel away clear protective sheet.
8
If using regular vinyl, place on transfer sheet and rub.
9
Place black eye pieces onto white ones and rub (or use iron if using HTV)
10
Cut out mouth and eye brow pieces (don’t forget to remove paper backing before placing)
11
Place pieces and rub or iron depending on type of vinyl you are using.
12
Place a rainbow sticker on the right foot of brown shoes
13
Trim any excess off headband and cut strip of soft felt to go on headband.
14
Using a glue gun, glue felt strip around the headband
15
Trace out what you want the spork to look like and cut out of stiff felt.
16
Curl onto headband and cut slits so it lays nicely. Glue by curling ends under for nice look.
17
Make or buy white leggings (check out my Instagram or YouTube for leggings tutorial)

You are all done!
