Sailboat Top with Iron-On Transfer

20 Jun

I have finally managed to sew something for J this year.  I made him the Oliver and S Sailboat top (size 2) using blue and white seer sucker.  I also attempted to do my first iron-on transfer. I downloaded a free race car template from the Ottobre Designs site and manipulated it using Photoshop.  I flipped the image so the 4 would appear the right direction, changed the color, and increased the size. I placed the transfer so it would start on the front side of the shirt and go to the back.

The ink didn’t completely transfer very evenly, but overall, I think the shirt looks adorable. When I was doing the transfer, my iron left a light brown stain on the shirt.  I’m hoping I can get this off during a washing.  If not, the stain will just blend in with the rest of the inevitable stains my 21-month year old acquires during the course of the day.

I have left over fabric cut and ready to sew for a pair of sailboat pants.  Hopefully, I’ll get to that next week.

    The seer sucker is great, and J is adorable. I just visited the Ottobre site with all those wonderful downloads. Downloaded tons of stuff, so now I have a lot of new craft projects to get started on! My new nieces will be styling!
