I love to read and one of my favorite books is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I often watch Pride and Prejudice while I am folding laundry and before too long the laundry has folded itself. The long eloquent speeches by Miss Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy are my favorite parts of the book/movie. My husband reminds me a lot of Mr. Darcy. He is a man of few words but when he speaks you want to hear what he says.The theme for this month’s Silhouette Challenge is kids. I went with babies and created this future Mr. Darcy onesie. You may swoon if you are sitting down. The Mr. Darcy part of the design uses glitter heat transfer vinyl because Mr. Darcy shines above all the rest!

1. Download the file you need. These files are only for your personal use. I have already mirrored the design for use with heat transfer vinyl (HTV).
I used a 0 – 3 month onesie for this project so you may want to resize the design if you are using a larger size.
2. Use the Silhouette to cut the heat transfer vinyl. Load the shiny plastic side of the HTV down into the Silhouette. For the glitter HTV, I used the Silhouette setting for Heat Transfer Material Flocked. I used the Silhouette cut settings for Heat Transfer Material for the regular vinyl.
3. Weed the designs. I find the Silhouette hook helpful in helping me grab the middle of letters for weeding and to hold down any stubborn letters.
4. Iron on “Mr. Darcy” HTV. I ironed on the “Mr. Darcy” portion first because that is the most important part of the design.
I used one of my son’s old cotton blankets between the iron and the HTV and pressed the iron down for 60 seconds.
5. Iron on “future” HTV. Since the HTV plastic is clear, it was easy for me to center “future” above “Mr. Darcy.” The ironing and peeling process is the same as in step 4.
