Lackadaisical - something about missing flowers?

« on: August 01, 2011 11:05:18 AM »

So, much like all of you I love the internet. Just a couple of days ago it showed me this really cool trick to turn crayons and sandpaper into really cute iron-on transfers. You just color onto the sandpaper (backwards of course) with your handy-dandy crayons and then apply the decorated sandpaper with the iron. Throw the clothes in the dryer for about 25 minutes and you are good to go!

I picked up a cheap tank top and made a shirt for a swap partner's daughter, who love pigs! It's a Zim pig, cause that's all I can draw. (Photos were quickies from my phone.)



I especially love the back.


It was so simple and so fun. This is something you could do with little ones (minus the hot iron, obviously) so they could personalize their clothes. The colors aren't super bright on dark clothes, but I really like the way it turned out.

That's really cool. I've never heard of this trick either, is it washable?

Yes. I made a test t-shirt with a small design and have washed it (cold water, tumble dry) three times with no fading. I was really surprised that it was so durable.

This is very cool.  You've inspired me to find my crayons and sandpaper!  (I know I have both in my room!)

Very cool. My favorite thing about this is that the materials are something every crafter has!

Lol.  My first shirt was a mistake - everything needs to be mirrored, right?  Cheesy

I drew an original gameboy - and the buttons are flipped.  However...my second and third attempt turned out pretty well!

Oh so cool! I crewed up the mirrored thing too the first time too. I tried to do a hand-drawn TARDIS illustration, but all the lettering was backwards. Oh well, we learn! Got any pics of your Gameboy shirts?

Hmmm, who would've thought? It always makes me wonder how the person with the original idea came to it!
