Hello~! For today's Kawaii D.I.Y. tutorial, I will teach you how to make a character plushie out of iron-on transfer sheet and an old shirt!
Actually, I didn't exactly plan to make a tutorial out of this but I thought you guys would be interested.. so I'm posting this.. yay!
I went to Ghibli museum with my friends so I just had to be in complete
My Neighbor Totoro fan coordinate! :D
It was my second time to go and I wanted a nekobus accessory to wear.. I didn't want to buy so instead, I just made one for myself.
I never thought this would become a tutorial so I forgot to take photos from the start.. but thankfully...
I already made an iron-on transfer tutorial before! Please check it out first ^^v
First of all, you need to print your character on a iron-on transfer sheet. You can buy this from your local bookstores or even online.
Make sure you print it with a "reverse" setting since you will be transferring the print flipped (you don't want that).
Use an old shirt you wouldn't mind tearing apart. Cut out the character and iron it on. You can use a clean sheet of paper on top of the cut-out so that it will be protected (just in case the iron will be too hot!).

If you want to add lace or ruffles to your socks the easiest way, here is one idea you can experiment with: detachable ruffles!!
My outcome is pretty crazy but this is just one way to create something unique! ^^v
You will be needing:
a pair of scissors, needle + thread, cute cloth cut-outs, buttons, garter...
Wear the socks you want to pair with your detachable ruffles so you will have an idea how to design it.
Cut a piece of cloth that is around 6 inches thick and fold it together. Wrap it around your ankle.

You will be needing any cloth / piece of fabric (preferably 20 x 20 in), needle & thread, 1 1/2 A4 sized scratch paper / magazine sheet, hook and eye, deco / beads, studs (optional), ballpen..
'I forgot to include a pair of scissors and some pins in the photo btw)
The total width of your detachable collar should be around the size of 1 1/2 A4 sheet of paper or approx. 18 inches (long) :D
