‘Petite is the new black’ t-shirt
Making sure my entrance had a little va va voom
If you’ve seen my previous post – ‘A petite peek into Bonmarche’s future’ – where I shared with you their Autumn/Winter 2015 collection, then you may have noticed my ‘Petite is the new Black’ t-shirt.
I don’t spend as much time on here as I’d like, and I have neglected my petite fashion blog for some time now. – Life and work has taken a precedence of late. So in an attempt to come back with a bang, I thought that my ‘Petite is the new Black’ t-shirt would be a fun way to introduce myself back to everyone and the world of blogging!
It’s straight forward to make as, after all, the clue is in the name – although there are a few things to remember which I’ll point out along the on the way.
So here goes ‘For the first time’ I will be using an iron-on transfer.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- An inkjet printer
- Transfer paper – (Obvs) – I got mine from Amazon, there are two types, one for light fabric and one for dark
- Some ordinary paper, you’ll need it to test the position of your design
- A pair of scissors
- An iron
- And of course, a t-shirt,or anything you want to personalise really
The instructions that came with the transfer paper were pretty straight forward, but nevertheless, here are a few important things to remember:
- Remember to FLIP your design before you print it-You can do this 2 ways either in your ‘print preferences’ and click flip, or in Microsoft Word, by clicking on page layout, picture tools, align and then click on flip… Sorry if you use a Mac, as I am not sure… I’ll come back to you on that
- Remember DON’T MARK anywhere on the printed side of your transfer- I did this and you can clearly see my pencil marks on the finished t-shirt so use a pin to indicate any registration marks
- Remember iron on the REVERSE side (of the transfer paper, or you’ll be buying a new iron
Step by step instructions
Once you have chosen your design follow these simple steps
And here you have it… my petite is the new black t-shirt
I know I keep saying this – BUT I REALLY MUST GET MY FRINGE CUT!!!
Don’t stop at t-shirts, go ahead and personalise everything and everything. I’d really love to see what you personalise. It would make a great project for summer holidays
Bye for now
