Nieces & Nephews Gifts

Hello everyone,

I can't believe it's been a month since the last time I posted. I've been out of town weddings, vacation in Georgia, OOh Yeah I got married. Now I'm headed to Corpus Christi for my Niece's baby shower. It’s been a long time since I've visited in Corpus I thought I'd bring a little gift to my new niece & some gifts for the others too. I'll start with the Hello Kitty T-shirt project. I used my Imagine to print & cut my Hello Kitty on Transferable paper. This was a little tricky!! I thought how complicated could it be? Well Hello Kitty is done in layers (not and I cart). Getting them to stay in place while you ironed was tricky. When I finished the transfer seemed unpolished. So I used some 3D fabric paint (Hobby Lobby) & outlined the different colors & re-outlined the black. I’m happy with the way it all turned out. With any new project practice makes perfect, so I'll be trying this again soon.
I did find the Imagine cartridges were much easier to transfer over...No layers. I could print the image whole.Which made the transfer easier.
Hind site is twenty-twenty. I read so many blogs and message board post over time I thought I had it all covered.I didn't some transfers tell you to wash your clothes before hand. Others tell you not to..The dark transfer is ironed on right side up and the light colored transfer is ironed on image faceing shirt.I did learn a lot, so I look forward to trying again.
Thanks for stopping by if you have any question let me know.
