Edie drew the picture herself. Robots on the dance floor. It actually turned out better printing directly on the fabric than the ironed-on version. I’ve read somewhere about ironing freezer paper onto muslin or duck and sending that through the printer and I think I will try that one of these days. I’m not wild about the quality of the fabric you buy to print on, not to mention it’s a little pricey. Anyway, another day….
Edie wanted to make Pat a t-shirt for Christmas. We bought the shirt, but then ran out of time to get it done, so I suggested we do it for his birthday. Which she was agreeable to. Of course, giving us an extra month didn’t mean it got done earlier, because it waited until 4:30 the afternoon of…..
Edie, being my dream child that she is, of course has had the drawing done since the day we brought home the t-shirt. All I had to do was scan and print. Ahem.
When I make t-shirts like this, I like to print it onto an iron-on transfer, apply it to muslin and then sew it on. I think the transfers I had were old, because the first two didn’t iron on correctly and then I was horrified to discover I was out of them. EEEK! It was 6:30, night of Pat’s birthday and I had until they got home from soccer practice at about 7:15 to get this finished. Thankfully, I rememembered I had a few pieces of ‘printable’ fabric on hand and I ran that through the printer and was able to get that to work. Phew.
“Kiss me I’m a robot”.
Turned out pretty cool if I do say so myself. Edie was happy with it and Daddy was happy with it. And that’s all that matters.
