So for my friend's 23rd birthday (back in April) I bought her and I tickets to see Genesis in concert.  I had this genius idea to make t-shirts for us to wear, and had never done iron-on transfers before.  Saturday morning I woke up really early, found some pictures of Phil Collins in all his glorious action, and made these beauties (they say Phil Me Up!). 

I can honestly say that we were the youngest, hottest, and coolest people at the concert, and had the best t-shirts.





My friend (on the right) is entirely responsible for the photoshopping, although we rocked so hard we could've made lightning strike if we wanted to.  We just, yunno, didn't want to shock the neighbors or anything with wielding our hard rocking weather controlling powers.

So has anyone found when using inkjet iron-on transfers that they have had issues with the transferred image "cracking"?  I am thinking I could just stick a piece of paper over the crack and re-iron that section, like maybe I didn't hold the iron over it long enough the first time- but wanted to check with the seasoned vets first.

*falls over*  I unfortunately missed te Genesis concert Sad  LOVE your t-shirts! I've been meaning to make myself a Phil t-shirt or two.  I definitely need one that proclaims Phil as my future ex-husband.  Awesome job!

I too have had problems with cracking, I thought my transfers were just old.
