At a Stitch n' Bitch a few weeks ago one of the members brought in a ball of yarn with the funkiest little retro illustration on the ball band of a baby alpaca. Another member suggested that this would make a great tshirt. I brought it home, blew up the illustration and fixed it up with Photoshop.

Today I finally got round to buying transfer paper and doing my first tshirt transfer! I love it!! Whaddya think?



I got this cool transfer paper with iron-on symbols on the back that change colour to let you know when you're done. The only probs I had were printing out when I put the res too high and got bleeding on the first print.

Great shirt! I like how you avoided what would have been my first impulse, to put the image smack dab in the middle of the front.

hey i think i figured out what yarn that label was from... plymouth yarns, right? they don't have the full vintage label anymore  Cry but they do have the little alpaca with the ball of yarn. i'm totally going out to buy this yarn!

thanks so much everyone! Smiley

I think it is a peruvian yarn - I'm in process of contacting them to ask if I can use the image to make something for my Etsy shop - maybe more vests.

I used an inkjet tshirt transfer paper from my local computer shop PC World. It worked well - It had little images on the iron-on side of green irons in orange circle. I had to iron until the green iron image turned the same colour as the orange circle - so it was easy for me not to under or over iron.

I just wore it to Woolfest [will be blogging about it soon - just Google] where I met real alpacas!
