Not sure if this is the right place but...

I made the images on these shirts with the iron on glue Steam-A-Seam2.  The 2 is the lighter weight version.  I used it because I helps the shirt hang softer.  I just print out my images, lay the S-A-S2 over the picture and trace(making sure the paper side with the glue on it is what I'm tracing on to).  Then peel off the other piece of paper and iron it to the back of the fabric.  If you are doing text, or want the picture reproduced exactly, you have to flip what your tracing BTW.  Then cut it out and place as you want it on the shirt.  Then just iron it down.  I never fully trust the iron on glue, so I take it to my machine and sew along all the glued on bits.


This one was made for nmcakemom07.  I wasn't thinking and used a woven fabric for the image and it unraveled some, even after sewing.  SO she will have to give Hello Hair a hair cut once in awhile.  The wand sparks are a glitter fabric glue.


This shirt was made for a private swap with Cherry48.  I remembered to use knit fabrics here, so it is much more stable.
Thanks for looking Grin

Mmm, interesting. I'm sure I'd get everything backwards if I were using it though!

I have done it backwards every other time before this, which is why I thought I had better mention that part Grin

Cool! I've used wonder-under mostly for non-wearables because it can get so stiff. Thanks so much for the tip! They look great.
