Hi,
I'm new around here.  Only a few post to ask questions and to gush over other people's work.  I can't sew, but I'm learning to this summer.  So, for now I am the lover of Iron-on transfers and no-sew projects.  Here are some of my iron-on transfer shirts.  Comments and suggestions appreciated!  Thanks for stopping by!
-Natural Starlet Wink


This shirt has an Outkast lyric on it.  It says "Sad, but one day our kids will have to visit museums to see what a lady looks like."  I love Outkast.  I added some jewels with my gluegun.  The jewels are on the back too.



I made this recently. Does anyone remember the show "Fraggle Rock"?



Here is the back of the "Fraggle Rock" shirt.



I cut this shirt up.  It was a plan white t-shirt.  I also tied on these lacy sleeves from a old headband.  That's Etta James on the shirt.


Here is a close up of the Etta James shirt.

Quality.  I made a whole bunch a couple weeks ago with some a big group and one of the girls made one that said "Made in the 80's"  you fraggle rock shirt made me think of that. sorry for the random thought

I LOVE that Fraggle Rock shirt!  I too am a child of the 80s ('82, actually!)  No one else seems to remember Fraggle Rock...makes me sad!  I will definitely have to make a shirt like that.  It could inspire an entire line of Child of the 80s clothing for me!

Yay!  Glad you all like my shirts.  I really appreciate it.  Thanks for stopping in here. Oh and VintageChick, I think I'm gonna make a line of these "child of the 80's" items too.  Also being born in 82', I have so many things that I wouldn't mind turning into neat clothes.  I think I'll do the muppet babies next....
