DIY ~ Iron On Decals

I am sooo happy with the way this turned out!!!
I wasn't sure if I was going to need to practice, and I thought I would mess up my new shirt for sure!
 
I got this cute yellow striped tshirt from Grannie in my Advent Calender.
I love it, but it's short sleeve and a little plain for my likeing.
I have loads of striped shirts.
 
Then, a few nights ago we went to see Tally's parents who had just gotten back from a 4 day trip to New York City!
Tally's Mom brought me back this really cool book for Iron on Decals from Sukie.
 
 
There is a load of pictures to choose from!
Awesome :))))
 
 
What a great gift!
Thanks so much Tally's Mom!!!
 
Anyhoo....this is how I put one of my NEW decals on my NEW shirt :)
First choose your decal and cut out around thie image.
 

Place the decal where you would like it to be placed on the shirt.
Iron your item of clothing to make sure there are no creases.


Place your iron directly on top of your decal and press down firmly for 10 - 15 seconds.
 
Do a circle motion over the decal for another 2 minutes.

 
Slowly peel the decal backing off...
 

It turned out sooooo cute!!!
I love it! :)
 

 
I also did some decals on a few cute onzies and they are now in my shop!
 
Cheers,
Messy
