Silhouette Sunday--San Francisco Giants Poncho

Last Halloween, my husband and daughter went to the San Francisco Giants World Series Parade (because they won the 2014 World Series!!!!  Woohoo!!!!).  They knew it was going to be rainy so they went and bought some cheapy ponchos from Sports Authority the night before...luckily they were orange!

But what is going to a parade to celebrate your team if you can't show off your Giants gear?

They came home and my daughter asked if I could make her a stencil with my awesome machine (the Silhouette Cameo) so they could spray paint the SF logo on her poncho.  I told her I could to better and cut and stick the logo on it!

At that time, I still had not purchased any vinyl...I only had some black Con-Tact paper.  I searched for the SF logo and did some button pushing (seriously, it is still a trial and error for me) and voila...

It lasted the day...but it did start to peel off in some spots--not sure if that is due to it being Con-Tact paper and not vinyl or if it had to do with the cheap poncho.

Maybe I should have made the MVP-Madison Bumgarner a cooler poncho! :)

Thank you for looking!

    1. Thanks :) I get my inspiration from the internet :D

  3. Great work! I have never tried contact paper. It sounds just like vinyl but cheaper! I think the poncho is so cool! I'm sure your daughter thought you were pretty cool too! I love that!

    1. Thanks girl! I don't think Contact paper is very durable though.
