Its T-shirt time!

While looking for a 'lil something special for my sons 1st birthday, I browsed Etsy for a unique 1st Birthday onesie to come along side my "music" themed birthday or one so cool/personal it would stand alone. Not only did I not find what I was looking for I found my self thinking "I could make these"(well some of them) or I could tailor some of these ideas and make something I REALLY wanted, thus started my shirt and onesie making experiences. The process that I found the cheapest and most do-able for me was by using wax paper. I found a how to video on Youtube and picked up tips and do's and don'ts by googling and surfing the web. The following is the step by step process I use and  Ephraim's 6th birthday shirt.
1.Pick a image or draw your own

2. Trace on matte side of the wax paper

3.Cut out with scissors craft knife ect.

4.Iron shiny side down onto fabric




The possibilities are endless. I like to break out of the mold so this is a great way to either spruce up some "almost" there cloths, give a inexpensive unique Birthday,Anniversary,Christmas present or to put your OWN special touch to something.
This is the 1st one I ever did for Ashers 1st

The brass knuckle detail was my favorite
