Fun with Fabric Transfers

So, I followed Melissa's tutorial on how to make a cute and personalized onesie gift, found here.  I thought it was such a cute and fun idea for something different.  Here's my take on it.  I have plans to make more things using these transfer paper sheets soon. 

First, I experimented with different fonts and sizes.  You can use what fonts you already have on your Microsoft Word program, or you can download free fonts at any number of sites.  Just google "free fonts".  I used  Using your ink jet printer, print your words/monogram/initial/picture/whatever-you'd-like in a mirrored image.  You can do this by checking out the advanced printer settings.  Make sure your quality on your printer is at it's highest (not in draft mode).  You should be able to fit at least 4 on a sheet, depending on how big your image is.  {Just trying to get you more bang for your buck!}  :)  I found my Light Fabric Transfer sheets at Wal-Mart.  I got 12 sheets for $7 {sale price}.

Next, iron your shirt/onesie on a hard surface.  Such as your kids' play table, so that you can keep an eye on them...

Read directions....always...just like I do...ha-ha!

Cut out/around image/text and press down with iron to get these:

And this...aren't they cute?
 Hopefully you will now be inspired to go and create your own one-of-a-kind shirts!

These are so cute! I am holding myself back from running to the store to find some transfer paper right now. :)


I am pregnant with our first and love this idea! What a fun new project- this is something I could go crazy with!


I would love to do this whenever we decide to have another baby. It's so hard to find really cute onesies that don't cost too much. These are so cute! I enjoyed looking around your blog and look forward to seeing more. I got to be your first follower! How fun!
