Designing Shirts and Using a Heat Press
One of the best investments I ever made was my heat press. Yup – got my own heat press at home. Whenever I feel the urge we make shirts. Anything we want. We simply copy something on to transfer paper and heat it up and iron it on.
This is one that I designed. I actually drew that drawing (positive and negative space) free hand; colored it all in with a sharpie; photocopied it onto transfer paper; and ironed it on. Then I did the same for the writing. I had to remember (and sometimes forget) to print as a mirror image.
This is one result. I love Irish Dance and used to be an Irish Dancer so I have many designs like this.
My daughter has so many different Irish Step Dancing shirts. I no longer dance but the love is still in my heart.
