Retro Wear - 70's Style; Printable Cuttable Creatables

Hi there, I’m sharing a retro themed project with you that I created for the Printable Cuttable Creatables blog. When I saw all the retro image SVGs, I was so excited since who doesn’t love a fun 70’s project?! 
I am attending a 13 going on 30 party next weekend and we are to dress as our 13 year old selves. I was not a fashion queen back in the 70’s but I remember wearing cut off jean shorts, T-shirts, long tube socks and Converse High Tops.  I thought it would be fun to add some Hand Peace Sign E728 SVG images to my jean shorts.

When you add the image to Cricut Design Space, you get two sets of hands.  I love that you get two different styles in one SVG file.  This gives us more options in one file!

I chose to use the hand with the outline for my project so I ungrouped the entire set and then hid the hand set I didn’t use.

After that, I adjusted the height of the remaining image to 3”. As long as the image is locked (you can see the padlock above the dimensions), you can change the width or height and the image will adjust accordingly.

From there, I duplicated the image six times to get the number I needed. I knew I was creating this image in multiple colors, so I changed the colors of each of them individually - lots of earthy tones for this project!

I placed the solid pieces all over the jeans and ironed them on using my Cricut Mini Press. Since these are a warm peel, I let them cool down a little and then peeled the backing.  Next comes the lined images which I placed on top of each solid hand.  (There is usually a little bit of shrinkage so it may not fit exactly.) 

So cute!  What do you think?  I can’t wait to show these off and I know my 13 year old self would have loved these!

There are so many cool retro SVGs to check out on the Printable Cuttable Creatables website, I know you’ll find something you’ll love and be sure to check out the blog for inspiration!
