DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Printable Iron On T-Shirt Transfers
Suggestions: Although I call these T-Shirt transfers, you can transfer the images to tote bags, hats, placemats, etc.
Check the box of your iron on transfer paper for what fabrics will work with that brand -- cotton (and cotton/polyester blends) work for all of the brands.
One viewer wrote in: "I love your iron on templates. I've printed these on special computer paper/puzzle sets and made sturdy felt puzzles as gifts for my grandchildren.
And another suggested: "Your templates make good mousepads too."
Note: The iron on transfers are just images flipped around so they look like a mirror image. If you look at the words on the page before you transfer them to a t-shirt, they all look backwards. This is NOT a mistake, it's how the transfer must be for it to come out right on the t-shirt.
If you've never printed anything in color from DLTK's before, it wouldn't hurt to try printing one of our color images on a piece of paper first, just to see how it goes.
Also note that some new printers will automatically reverse the image when you tell it you are printing iron-on transfers. I guess they are just being helpful but in our case, I have already reversed the image. You may want to print a test page on regular paper with your printer set to "iron on transfer" to be sure that the template comes out correctly. Thanks to Bea for providing this tip.
