    It’s Becky from Ucreate and I’m excited to be here sharing my teacher appreciation idea!
    Normally, we do something girly and crafty for the teacher’s, but this year my son has a male teacher. ; ;
    Girly and crafty were out of the question. ;
    So with the help of my son, we decided upon a SUPERHERO theme. ; I had seen this saying last year: “I teach. What’s your superpower?” and thought it would be perfect for Mr. B.
    Now we just had to find something manly to put it on. ; Really the possibilities are endless, but we decided on this grey hat I found at Walmart. ;

    With this hat, my Silhouette machine and some heat transfer we have the perfect teacher appreciation gift for those guy teachers.

    #1: Create the image in Silhouette {or you can email me at and I will send you my SVG file}.
    #2: Cut the emblem outline and the “i teach.” out of red heat transfer.
    #3: Cut the light bulb and “what’s your superpower?” out of white heat transfer.
    #4: Iron the emblem outline on first, then the light bulb, then the “i teach.” ;
    #5: Lastly, iron the “What’s your superpower?” on the back above the strap.

      How did you iron it on? I want to make some hats, but I am having trouble ironing it on because the hat is so curved. Do you have any tips?

        Hi Shannon,

        Can you feel the hat with something (like a ball) to make it more firm and stable so you can iron?

      This logo is adorable. What a great idea, you are right, it's a bit harder to think of gifts for male teachers.
