Boston- tracing a photo with the Silhouette

My friend Ashley loves her dogs! Her dog Boston passed away a few months ago and it was really hard for her.  She is expecting a baby girl in October, and decorating her little girls room in yellow, and Boston Terriers.  I thought baby T needed a Boston onesie. 

 I looked for a good picture on the Silhouette store, and online, but couldn't find one I liked. So I decided to make my own!
 This was a first for me! 
First I imported a picture of Boston into the program. Then I used the tools on the right to trace the picture. I used the line tools and the closed shape tools (the ones that look like an hourglass). 

Then, once I had an outline that I liked. I cut it with the Silhouette using heat transfer vinyl. I added a cute little red heart to give it some extra love! 

I know she is going to love this!
