Sorry about the image quality.  I still need to get a digital camera, so this is a scan.  It's just an Avery transfer on the front.  It was an image from my brother or his wife's cellular phone that I changed to black and white on Microsoft Paint (who needs photoshop?!?!).

The back is from a fallout boy song that they both like.  I figured "Am I more than you bargained for yet" on the bootie of a baby was fairly appropriate placement  Wink  It's hard to see in the scan, but I drew lines to simulate the writing paper you use in kindergarten/early grade school to practice writing your letters correctly.

I did the same image in dark pink on a polka-dot pink onesie, it says "Born to be loved" on the back by the shoulders.

I was recently doing some iron-ons on onsies and kept having issues with the ribbing.  I wasn't sure if I needed to get better quality onsies (I was using the cheapo gerber brand) or better transfer paper.

Did yours split on the ribbing?  It may have just been that some of the pictures that I was using were too dense.

Well, it hasn't yet because I haven't washed them yet.  The polka dot one is smooth, so it shouldn't be a problem at all.

I have done iron ons on a ribbed tank top before, and the results were pretty awful.  But I had another iron-on crack on a smooth t-shirt: fortunately, with other details I added to the shirt, it just made it look "vintage."

It doesn't matter on the "denseness" of the picture, just the quality of the iron-on and the fabric involved.  It also doesn't matter how cheap the fabric is - if it's ribbed, your iron-ons will probobly crack.

Cute! I was planning on making some custom onesies when my baby comes along...but didn't think of transfers (duh). I was thinking stencilling or screening.

I like the lyrics. :-)
