crayola® transfer t-shirt

Summertime is the perfect time to DIY a shirt or two, especially these colorful cuties! Kids will love drawing scenes from their favorite story or memory with Crayola® crayons. You’ll love how easy it is to transfer their pictures onto a cotton t-shirt with an iron.
Step 1
Project Notes: 
   -  This is a project for kids aged 4 and up.
   -  Before you begin this project, take a few moments to imagine a story, or think about a fun or interesting memory.
   -  You’ll have to do some ironing in Step 5. Remember that this is a job for an ADULT only.
 
Use your pencil to lightly draw pictures of your story or memory onto the front side of your fabric transfer paper. Make a separate drawing for each scene you want to show.
 
TIPS:
   -  You’ll need to fit all your drawings onto the front of your t-shirt, so make sure they’re not too big.
   -  Remember that your picture will be reversed when you iron it onto your shirt. If you want to add words, make sure to write them backwards on your transfer paper. 
Step 2
Use your crayons to color in your pictures. Make them nice and bright. 
Step 3
Next, cut out each picture and be sure to trim as close as you can to the drawings so you don’t have a lot of white space. 
Step 4
Lay the pictures onto your shirt, in the order that your story or memory happened. Make sure the colored side of each drawing is facedown. 
Step 5
ADULT: Follow the transfer paper’s packaging instructions to iron the crayon pictures onto the shirt. Gently peel away the paper backing for each one.

TIP: Once you’ve removed the paper backing, don’t touch the iron to your transferred images. It will melt the crayon off of your shirt.
