Father's Day Gift {FAIL}

I've been whipping out little gifts here and there with my new Silhouette. I even received my vinyl shipment so I've been going to town with that. Today I want to share with you my FAILED Father's Day gift.

Why is it a FAIL? Even though this is a cute tee-shirt:

Seriously, how funny is this? A lot of men refer to their wives as "Trophy Wife", but how many women turn the tables? That was my idea...

Here's a close up:

Now, my husband truly is my trophy :-) He works hard, loves MY children as if they're his own, and supports me in all my crazy endeavors. So I was pretty pysched about making him this tee-shirt.

And then he tried it on...


Huh? I grabbed it from his stash of tee-shirts! But he tried it on and said it was too small :-( That's why I don't have a picture of him wearing it :-( :-(

But my FAIL can be your gain! I'm sharing this file for you ladies who'd like to create a heat transfer tee for your hubbies so they know they're a prize.

Just make sure you pick a tee that's the right size LOL

  1. Lesley, I have an awesome idea! Cut it out in a rectangle shape and sew it to the front of a t-shirt that DOES fit, like a large patch. It is FAR to nice not to get used! I love this idea! Blessings!

  2. I like Kelly's idea above, but that is too funny!

  3. that is a very cute and smart idea! you're right, you hardly hear trophy husband at all!

  4. More wives should thing of their husbands as trophies! I am sorry that your project went awry, but it is still admirable! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Make it into a pillow!!! I love the idea of a Trophy husband. I have been called a Trophy wife, being younger than my hubby but truly he is my Prize!!!
    I love this but cut it up and make it into a pillow for his side of the bed. hehe

    Following you now. Love all your vinyl projects. Loving your blog!!!

  6. I thought women were the only ones who had too-small clothes in their closets! ;)

    Great job, even if it didn't work out like you had expected.

    I'm going to have to look into this heat transfer stuff ...

  7. Aw MAN! That sucks! Sorry about that. I think it's still a funny shirt!

  8. Oh no, have to make it again :) Super cute idea tho I love it! Isn't the Silhouette awesome!! Would love to have you link up with us on Sunday for our very first link up party. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Oh no... sorry it didn't fit! It's the thought that counts right?! lol It is cute. Thanks for linking up to this week's Catch a Glimpse party.

  10. I LOVE this! HAHAHA so funny! I would make one for my hubba hubba but I am sure he would not wear it! LOVE it! Great idea! Okay going now, I am gushing!!

  11. That's too funny! Thanks for linking this to Wicked Awesome Wednesday.

  12. Im totally making one for my husband. Thanks for the idea and for linking up at last week's party!
