Back of T-shirtAs I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm in the process of planning a Transformer birthday party for my son. So, I decided to make him a special shirt to wear for the day. What I like about this project is you can personalize it anyway you want. My friend Jenny made one for her son to resemble a rugby shirt(which is where I got the idea by the way). It had the child's name on it with his age. Simple directions below to make your own birthday t-shirts using iron-on printer paper.
iron-on t-shirt transfer printer paper (I used the Office Max brand, it cost about $14.00 for a pack of 10 sheets)
*they have special paper for darker shirts
t-shirt (purchased mine at Walmart for $3.00)
Decide what images you want on your t-shirt. I created the text using Photoshop. Reverse the image then print on the transfer paper (refer to picture above). I recommend fitting as many images as you can on one piece of paper to get the most use out of it.
Next cut out the images and decide where you want them. Iron it on the t-shirt according to the transfer paper's directions.
I put an image on the front and the back of the t-shirt. If you're going to do this, make sure you put a thick padding in the middle of the shirt when you go to iron. Otherwise the heat will distort the image on the front of the shirt.
