Check out my new shirt!

I made this shirt last night so that I can wear it to the CROPPED Event this Saturday!

I used a iron on T-shirt transfer from Neenah Paper Inc.  
It comes in 12 x 12 sheets of solid colors.  I cut these letters with my Cricut and then ironed them on to the t-shirt.  The instructions say you should place the image down, iron it on and then peal off the backing . . . in one big sheet . . . but mine cut all the way through so I needed to line them up letter by letter.  Since my letters were thin I did have to work a little bit to get the backing to come up.  If I had been able to cut through JUST the film and not the backing then it would have pealed up in one nice sheet.  I will have to play with the cutting settings to find the right depth and pressure so that I cut just the iron on film next time.

The material is washable . . . wash garment inside out, in cold water and dry on low heat.  I will have to review the product again after I have worn and washed the shirt a few times to let you know how it holds up. I have a hockey jersey that I wanted to put our last name on, so I will probably use this product for that also.
