Hi there!

Just when I thought I had come to a slamming stop, I have a crafting report!

For fathers day I was keen to make something a bit special for The Gherkin and Mr Pickles to enjoy together. So I made this tshirt! Well, I didn't really make it (thankyou bonds!), but I did decorate it. Here it is modelled by the The Gherkin himself.

Picked up these great iron-on transfer printable papers from officeworks. You just make or select an image on your 'puter, flip it horizontally so you are looking at the mirror image, print it our on the transfer paper and iron it on. Done! You can take the gloss out of the transer as well by ironing over again (once the image has cooled and set to the clothes) with plain paper. Think I will do this next time... I didn't this time round, but I think it would look better matt.

And just in case you wanted to be able to read the fine print... here is the whole image...

Thanks for popping in again!
