Project by Aleah Sherrod for CraftAndFabricLinks.com

The image on the right shows a shirt made by one of our visitors. She used our lettering pattern and instructions, and added ready-made "kisses".

Use your favorite tee shirt or tank top pattern, or purchase a plain white tee shirt or tank top, and add appliques for a St. Patrick's Day celebration.

There are two steps to using fusible web (also called iron-on adhesive). The first is to attach the adhesive to your transfer pieces (the applique pieces). The second step is to iron the applique onto your garment.

Supplies


1/4 yard green fabric for applique pieces

sharp scissors

pins

large sewing ruler or yardstick

1/4 yard fusible web (iron-on adhesive)

white tee shirt or tank top

Optional: fabric paint (comes in a fine tipped tube for outlining applique)
I used green for the letters and gold for the shamrocks

Instructions



PATTERN

Our pattern will download as a pdf file. Each group will fit onto an 8/5" x 11" paper. If you need instructions on using pdf files, go to PDF Instructions.

NOTE: Our patterns are printed as reverse images. The reason is that you will trace the pattern onto the back of the fusible web. When the pattern pieces are cut out and adhered to the shirt, they will be a correct image.

Before you begin, prewash and dry the fabric and shirt. Do not use fabric softener. Iron as needed.

1.  Cut a piece of fusible web (such as Heat N Bond or Wonder Under (also called iron-on adhesive) large enough to cover each pattern. I used our fusible web for this project.

2. Lay the web over the pattern, paper side up. Trace the reversed image onto the paper side of the fusible web. I found that pencil worked best (ink smeared).
