T-Shirt Fun

We got a little crafty this year and brought some equipment to make iron-on t-shirts based on the 24HCD poster.

The process is pretty easy. Step One is to print out the artwork on special t-shirt transfer paper (you can get this stuff at Target). Then cut to size.

Step Two is to peel the backing off the artwork and position the art on a clean, ironed t-shirt.

For Step Three, place a piece of wax paper on top of the art (this wax paper is found in the packet of t-shirt transfer paper).

Step Four: Iron, man! For something this size, we went for one minute, alternating between "wax on" and "wax off" motions.

Step Five, finally: Let the thing cool off for a minute or two, and then carefully peel the wax paper off. Since the t-shirt was pre-washed, it's ready to wear!

Here are a few happy customers:
