ETA: I used HP Iron-on Transfers for Colored fabrics. I have also used Avery Dark T-Shirt Transfers. I specifically use the transfers for dark t-shirts (regardless of the color of fabric I’m using) because the images are applied “face up” so I don’t have to worry about images being reversed. I die cut the shapes and then stamped them w/die ink. Permanent ink is not necessary because ink jet printer ink isn’t waterproof. It can be kind of tricky/tedious to separate the transfer from the backing. I used an exacto-type knife to very, very carefully start the separation process.
A friend of the family recently had a baby boy. I decided to take the opportunity to make one of my favorite things, onesies! This time I made a now and later gift. I made 3 onesies for now and two more “grown up” t-shirts for later. A side note: the “jack” on the bag looks a little funny because of the bag’s texture (I think).
For the name, I use PTI’s alphabet die and used a large solid stamp (the wool from PTI’s My Punny Valentine) to color the letters. In order to get good coverage, I had to stamp the letters twice.
Here is the whole ensemble.
Stamps: PTI Sweet Baby
Ink: Memento Lady Bug, Pear Tart, Tangelo, Danube Blue
Other: Unknown White ribbon; PTI alphabet dies and coordinating dies for Sweet Baby; Dark t-shirt transfer paper
Thanks for stopping by. I know it has been eons since I last posted, which brings me to my graceful out that there is a reason my blog is entitled as it is.
I hope you have a magnificent and magical holiday season!
