I have been having so much fun creating my applique patterns for my Etsy shop, but then one day I was thinking about how fun it would be to make some iron on transfers that people could print themselves. I know not everyone loves to applique, so this would be an easy way to make a fun, unique, t-shirt. I have made a few iron on shirts for my son recently to test out my patterns, and they are so easy to make!! I am actually pretty impressed with the quality of iron on paper today. It used to be so stiff and the shirts never looked quite right, but the ones I picked up from Michael’s worked perfectly. Maybe soon I will do a quick tutorial for an iron on shirt. Hubby has been asking me to make him a shirt, so I can show the process with that.
I have been turning a lot of my applique designs into iron on transfers. These are made with patterned designs so it almost looks like fabric on your shirt, but it’s so much easier!! Of course all my applique patterns are still available if you want to use those to make a quilt or to make shirts with your own fabric. I still love the look of fabric on a shirt, but iron on transfers do make the process nice and quick! I have designed a few for Hanukkah and Christmas, and even though these holidays are close, since my designs are printables, there is still plenty of time to pick one up and make a special shirt for the holiday.
