So I got the idea in my idea to DIY a graphic tee. I picked up a 4-pack of gray men's tees at Target for $1.78, found a tutorial on Pinterest, got the transfer paper, etc. I found my image at the Graphics Fairy. The first try was a fail. First my printer ink ran out. Then when we ironed on the image we discovered that the backing on the dark tee transfer paper was white which wasn't what I was looking for. So I got more ink and picked up the light tee tranfer paper. This look was more what I was trying for, but the image is still kind of shiny, so not perfect, but OK. Total cost was around $12 (tees plus 2 packs of transfer paper), plus I have 2 more tees and enough transfer paper for a couple more projects.
**Updating to add: after washing, the transfer on this got kind of crackly in texture. I am not thrilled with how it looks. We waiting 24 hours after washing, so not sure what the story is. If you try this, let me know how it works, but wanted to pass along this info.
I have been scouring Goodwill obsessively for a denim jacket so I can make it into a denim vest, but no luck. We're heading to dance tonight, so I can check out a different Goodwill there.
Any DIY apparel or accessories projects you'd recommend? I'm always up for an new project!
