iron-on fun

This year for Sosi’s birthday party loot bag we decided to do something a little different. We set up a craft table for the kids to each do a drawing. We scanned each drawing, printed it  onto iron-on transfer paper and then ironed them onto a t-shirt for them to each take home (luckily we had my folks here to lend a hand to the assembly line).


It turned out to be so much fun. In all the mayhem I totally forgot to take pictures… which is really too bad because each kid’s t-shirt turned out so great!  All so different and unique. I think they were all really happy and proud of the results.

I’ve been a little obsessed with iron on transfers lately. I’ve had a package of them for probably 10 years that I’ve always wanted to use, but never got around to it. This year I took the plunge! We made t-shirts for all the kids on our Xmas list. I forgot to take pictures of those too, but they were similar to this one here.


Now that I’ve started, I can’t stop! Here is one I did today. I was trying to cover a stain on one of my favourite shirts. I really like how it turned out, but I can still see the stain…

  1. i love this! i have been doing a lot of drawing on onesies lately as baby-welcome-gifts – but this is even better. i’ll try it tonight:)


  2. yes, those are great!!

    I would love to know what iron on transfer brand you would recommend too because the ones I find do not look great and “seamless” if you know what I mean.


  3. ooops! i thought i answered that question…

    i really liked the “office depot”brand. it went on really well and looks great. the key is to cut out the pieces you are going to iron on. i also used the the “hp” one and it was not nearly as good.
