I love Mummy t-shirt with your child's drawings and learn how to seal the transfer so it does not wash off

Below is a T-shirt I designed using my little girls drawings and adding the words I love Mummy. When we went out with our friends a few weeks back she saw a t-shirt with I love Mummy on it and wanted one to wear for Mother's Day. Well if you have been reading my blogs you will know I am just a little bit jinxed, so instead of buying one I decided to make one. And I have to admit I am happy with the result as it is more personal with your own child's drawings.

You can pick up cheap t-shirts from any Supermarket. Usually three for £3, which works out at just a £1 per t-shirt. Only problem is they come in different colours and of course you need white ones for T-shirt designs.
The t-shirt transfer is also fairly reasonable from Supermarkets at £2.50 for a pack of five A4 sheets.  The only problem I have is the Ink Cartridges are so expensive and just do not last. So any help and advice on that would be useful. I have come up with an amazing sealant for T-shirt transfers to stop them washing off. But I am still in the process of testing it, so will revert back to my blog with the update later this week.

A good tip for for creating professional looking t-shirts is to not iron on the transfer as an A4 sheet. But to cut the design out and place it on the t-shirt and then iron it on. It looks far more professional! And you can even outline it with a fabric pen which looks even better. I hope to have an update on the iron on t-shirt sealant shortly so stay tuned.
