My dad is the HARDEST person to shop for. He has everything and wants nothing. Ive only been able to give him home made things or "coupons for a dinner date". So this year since I've been so crafty lately I thought I would craft him something. But Dad and Craft don't always go well together.. for my dad anyway.
Then I thought I would design him a personalized shirt! This cost me $1! If your sneaky you can even snag one of his own plain T-shirts and personalize it. Then its free :P
My Dad is a huge Music/Guitar guy so I thought it would be perfect to put a guitar head of his favorite guitar on there.
ONE:Now I'm a pretty good artist, but lets be honest, plastic bag and exacto knife don't make for the best show of skills. To get everything precise (because yes, my dad would notice if it was missing a nob :P) I printed out off the internet the image of the guitar and placed it over the plastic bag. You can tape it or staple them together if you need to keep them secured.
TWO: Then you just trace out your design.
THREE: place the image where you want it on your shirt then place a piece of Trace paper over it.
FOUR: on a medium setting iron over the paper. Let it cool before you peel the paper off. If there are any edges that are pulling up, place the paper back over and iron some more. Be sure to always keep the iron moving.
Has anyone else tried this? What did you put on yours?
