Why do 8 yr old boys HATE having their photo's taken! I thought I would make a cute T-shirt for him to wear on Father's Day........maybe he is a bit old for it and I should have made one a few years earlier, but worth a try!
It is super easy to make using T-shirt transfer material with the LD Tie Alphabet.
You will need to purchase the alphabet and then you can type you own sentiment. When happy with the sentiment you can download it at high resolution as an image. Then, I imported the ties into my Pazzles Inspiration visual mat. I typed "I love my...." using the Darlin BTN font on my computer and using the eye dropper tool matched the blue from one of the ties to my text.
I just rearranged the sentiment and ties to my liking and using the T-shirt transfer paper printed it out following the instructions on the packet.
I decided not to do a print and cut with my Pazzles Inspiration as it is quite easy to hand cut around this image with scissors.
Incidentally, my printer has an option to reverse the printed image for me, so check out your printer options otherwise, you will have to mirror the image in your Pazzles or similar software before printing.
Then, I lay the image onto my white T-shirt on a flat surface. This T-shirt transfer paper recommends a hot iron with steam turned off. I carefully moved the iron over the back of the image for a couple of minutes. I particularly like this T-shirt transfer paper as the grid helps me lay the image straight on the T-shirt!
When the paper had cooled down I carefully peeled back the paper to reveal my transfer!
Matthew being 8 yrs old did a DEAL with me.......he cooperated in wearing the T-shirt but insisted that I did not show his (cute) face in the photo for everyone to see (shame)!!!
