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.
To learn a quick and easy method for using iron on adhesive and a pressing sheet, visit our free instructions on Creating A Floral No-Sew Applique.
The applique pieces will not stick to the pressing sheet, which makes it
easy to create very intricate appliques. A pressing sheet is not required for this project.
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).
