This is the gift we, I and the kids, gave to my husband last year as Father’s day gift. I think he’s tired of the Homer Simpson themed shirts, I buy for him. So this time, I decided to make a matching set of t-shirts for him and the kids.
I purchased iron-on fabric transfer sheets and plain shirts to design the t-shirts. I found the images online. I searched for ones as high-resolution as possible. I typed the catch phrases on a Word document. Printed everything out on the transfer sheets and cut them out.
IMPORTANT TIP #1: Remember that once you print on a sheet, you’ll turn it back on the fabric and iron-on. So print has to be mirror image of what you want to see on the fabric. e.g. “Doh!” should be “!hoD”, including D in mirror image.
IMPORTANT TIP #2: Buy the type of transfer sheet that is appropriate for the color of the fabric. There are white fabric transfer sheets, light color, transfer sheets and colored fabric transfer sheets. I didn’t pay attention to that detail at first and this happened. DOH!, literally.
Now I have to start thinking about this year’s Father’s Day gift. Or certain someone! can drop an anonymous comment with his wish list.
