I might take better photos tomorrow, but I had so much fun making these latest iron-on transfer t-shirts that I couldn’t wait to post pictures. This is my new favorite quick creative project. The gratification is near-instantaneous, they only cost a few dollars to make, and my kids love wearing them.
The striped one was Photoshopped from a printable coloring page, and the heart border on Rose’s is from a vintage valentine.
At least one person asked for a tutorial, but in case I never get around to it, you could always just buy a pack of transfer sheets and follow the instructions that come with them. You can buy them from an office supply store or fabric store (I’m pretty sure I also looked for them at craft stores but didn’t find them,) and pay attention to whether you’re buying the ones for white-to-very-light shirts or for dark shirts. The ones for dark shirts cost more and the instructions are different.
I’d tell you which brands are best, but I’m not sure yet–I’ve tried two brands and so far the first brand does crack in the wash after just a few washings, and I haven’t tried washing the other brand. I did try an internet search to see which brands people liked, but found numerous complaints for every brand, so you might not want to try this on any project that has to last.
