Silhouette's heat transfer material and the Allstar font (get it free here or here), you can make school shirts for any team for just a few bucks! I used the white flocked heat transfer material and cut out a large "U" for the front and "Go Utes!" for the back.
Here's the quick and dirty how to for Silhouette's heat transfer material.
1. Create your wording in the Silhouette Studio software. BE SURE TO FLIP HORIZONTALLY SO THE WORDS ARE BACKWARD! Select the appropriate heat transfer medium from the cut menu and cut your letters out of the heat transfer material with the shiny side down.
2. Use a sharp object (I used my Making Memories paper piercer) to remove the parts of the transfer material that you don't want to transfer (like the center of letters).
3. Place your image plastic-side-up on your fabric.
4. Cover with a cloth. Heat your iron to the Cotton setting and press over each area of the image for 45-60 seconds.
5. VERY IMPORTANT: Wait until your image has cooled before peeling off the plastic.

The other kids chose their own lettering/designs. Our friend Brooklyn wanted her last name with her favorite number, jersey-style.
And my youngest chose this "Go big or go home" design from the Silhouette shop. He's been saying that constantly ever since.
I am loving this heat transfer stuff! You can find it on sale now for 25% off, or if a Silhouette is on your wish list, get one with a 3-pack of heat transfer material for only $219 (over $125 savings) over at Silhouette. Use code LITTLEBIRDIE. But only through May 25th!
