Iron On Transfers

So let's open a whole new world of stamping....or just see another example if this isn't new to you... ;) Iron on transfers are the BEST! You can use your beautiful stamped images on shirts, table cloths, dish towels...you name it!



For this project you will need....


1.) T-shirt Transfer sheets...I picked these up at Michaels. They are $9.99...I highly recommend that 50% off coupon for this purchase!
2.) T-shirt
3.) Favorite stamp....I am using Unity's Queen For A Day set for this one
4.) Encore Silver Metallic ink...I also added some SU seed beads.



Step 1: Pre-wash your garment! If you don't...and it shrinks....well, that just spells trouble for your stamped image.



Step 2: Stamp your image on the transfer sheet and then cut out.

Step 3: Pre-heat an iron to the cotton setting and turn off the steam.


Step 4: On a hard heat safe surface...I do mine on our stove...you could just remove the cover on your iron for this as well, cover with a pillow case and then put your shirt down. Iron out any wrinkles.

Step 5: Put iron on top of image. If it doesn't cover the entire image pick up and then move to the next spot...do not slide.



Step 6: Let image cool slightly and then peel the backing off.

Viola! It's really simple. You can embellish to your liking. I added just a few seed beads.

This one is for a Boo basket I am making....their little girl will LOVE it!

I'm off to do the bed time ritual. I hope you all had a great day! I will post you tomorrow! ;)
