I made a transfer tonight with a brand of transfer paper that I hadn't used before. Big mistake! It was shiny and the parts that were supposed to be clear were white and it just overall looked poopy (and very amature). So what's a girl to do? Come to see if any of my fellow Craftster's have done the same thing.

Looking through the posts I couldn't find a way to totally remove the transfer but the one tip that kept coming up was to re-iron the transfer with printer paper between the transfer and the iron. I figured what the hey. The shirt's already ruined what's the worse that could happen? (Besides catching my house on fire!  Cheesy)

So I ironed, prayed and ripped......... Well wouldn't you know all the white parts that messed up the whole look were on the paper, the shine was gone and my design looks EXACTLY how I envisioned it! YAY! I'm so happy I can't even tell you!

I really thought that the shirt was ruined but instead I have something new to wear tomorrow! Yay! THANK YOU FELLOW CRAFTSTERS!!!!!

I think the secret is "ripped."  Back when I learned stone lithography in college, one of the key mantras was "slow lays down, fast picks up."
