We both work part time in the bar/restaurant industry, and everyone in our business knows that one of the perks of the job is free swag! What do we mean by swag? Hats, bottle openers and lots and lots of shirts. Every holiday and sports season we get boxes full of cool stuff from beer and liquor companies to give away to customers. Every time a brand rep makes a delivery, it's sort of like Christmas for bartenders. Anyway! This whole practice means we've accumulated a ton of t-shirts and why not find something else to do with them?
First I found an image online and printed it into the transfer paper.
Last years St Patricks Day shirt - thanks Jameson!
**When you print onto transfer paper, you have to flip the image before you print it so it will come out correctly when you apply it.
Then I cut the t-shirt around the edges of the image.
First I ironed the shirt to get out any little wrinkles, then let it cool.
Next, I followed the transfer paper time and heat directions to iron on the image.
Then let it cool!
Once the transfer was complete it was time to load the stapler!
Then I wrapped the shirt around the canvas and secured with staples.
Decided to add it to the jewelry/gallery wall in our master bedroom!
