☆ Make Your Own Cute Graphic Shirt Using Iron-on Transfer Papers! ☆

How about turning your old white tee to something more interesting like a DIY graphic shirt? You don't need to have your design printed somewhere expensive + sometimes, fabric pens are too tacky to use.. >_< Whenever I need a customized shirt for a presentation (back in college), I would use iron-on transfer sheets to make personalized shirts.

Let's Start!

First, you need iron-on transfer papers. I suggest getting an A4 size if you want a huge print on your DIY shirt. You can print many designs in one page then just cut those out separately to save the paper.

You can wear this using just a plain collared shirt + cardigan for an instant preppy x lolita look!

But then again, you can just use a needle & thread.

Then get a ribbon since you will use this to hang the schoolgirl bow tie around your neck.


Hajimemashou! Let's start!

Cut a rectangular strip of satin cloth. My satin cloth has creases so it's hard to cut without following the lines.

Just estimate how long you want it to be. The actual size of the bow is around the half of this.
