Craft Time With Buddy Bear H ey friends! If you find yourself looking for a fun project on a cold day this winter, you might try making your own T-shirt transfer. Although it’s an easy project, be sure to have an adult supervise you when using a hot iron to transfer the pattern onto the shirt. Let’s get started! 1) For this project, you will need one sheet of general purpose sandpaper, crayons and a T-shirt (a light color is best). The coarser the sandpaper, the rougher your pattern will look when transferred. 2) Choose a simple design and color it on the sandpaper. The image will be reversed when you iron it. 3) When you’re ready to transfer the design onto the T-shirt, make sure the shirt is wrinkle free or the wrinkles might show up in your design. Now, place a piece of cardboard inside the T-shirt and lay it on top of the ironing board. Next, place the sandpaper, design side down, onto the center of the T-shirt and place a clean paper towel on top of the back of the sandpaper. 4) Now, turn the iron on high and let it warm up for several minutes so it’s really hot. Set the iron on one section of the paper towel covered sandpaper and leave it for at least 30 seconds; continue to do this until you have been over all of the design. Before lifting the sandpaper, peek under one corner to see if your design has transferred. If it has, remove the sandpaper. Your image will have lots of great texture! To set the image, place a few pieces of paper towel over it and iron, then put the T-shirt in a warm clothes dryer for about 15 minutes. Wash seperately for the first wash. 5) Eleven-year-old Caleb Stangl models the completed project — a cool-looking dinosaur T-shirt! ry your hand at my monthly word watch. It’s easy.
