I've been going crazy on Pinterest projects! Here are the last few for now! :)
Project 1: EASY t-shirt transfer!
I saw a really neat idea to use plastic bags as iron ons! I didn't have any cute shopping bags around, but I found these loot bags at Big Lots for 50 cents for 8 bags. I'm seeing fun birthday party favors in our future! Literally, the longest part of this project was cutting out the pictures! (And then Aidan asked why I didn't include the web!)
- Trim plastic bag to desired size. Note: Try to keep each piece smaller than the surface of your iron. If you look closely at SpiderMan, you'll notice that his head is a bit deformed. When you first put heat on, the plastic will seize up and shrink.
- Place pieces of plastic on shirt (or bag or ?!?!?!?) and cover with parchment paper. Note: Don't try to reuse the parchment paper. My princess shirt has some stray marks in the shape of Spiderman.
- Heat with iron. This step is very quick! It doesn't take long.
- Leave parchment paper on for a few minutes to set. Note: I noticed the paper starting to peel away from the shirt. That's when I lifted the paper.
- If the decal seems to be lifting, put the parchment paper back down and iron some more.
- I haven't tried washing these yet, but they say it's supposed to be permanent.
Project 2: Quick Scarves
I am not a scarf girl, but I found this tip to make a scarf out of t-shirts.
My co-worker made one yesterday (from a t-shirt I picked up from a thrift store for a quarter!)
Tonight, Heather I did a "Mommy and Me" project. We started with these shirts.
Heather modeling hers....
Both of us with our scarves.
