Iron On Transfer T-Shirts - Dragon Tales Theme

We gave iron on transfer shirts to all of the birthday party guests at Tasha's 6th party.  To read the whole story and see pictures of the shirts (after 2 years of wash and wear), check here.

You can also use these transfers when sewing your own tote bags.

Instructions:

I'm not going to provide much in the way of directions here.  Just make sure you follow the ones you get with the iron-on transfers very carefully.  We only had trouble peeling the first shirt (we didn't wait long enough).  When it happened, we just put everything back down, ironed it a bit more and you couldn't tell we'd messed up.  All I can say is make sure you wait.

In terms of printing the transfers, you have to figure out if your printer prints on the top or the bottom.  I just printed the word TEST on a scrap piece of paper.  Before printing, I put an X on the front of the paper (face up) and that way, I knew whether it printed on the face up or face down side.

Make sure you set your margins as low as you can.  Go into FILE, PRINT SETUP or FILE, PAGE SETUP on your browser and adjust your margins to .25 or so.  In this same location you can also turn off your header and footer so you don't print the date and such.

Just to be clear, you need to cut out the individual images from the Template 1 (2 t shirt) version to arrange them as you want on the shirts.  You don't want to cut them out around the lines or anything... just cut a big circle around the image.  You can put the images on the front, on the back or where the pocket would be.

The templates look backwards (to read any words, you have to hold them up to a mirror).  This isn't a mistake.  It's how it has to be for the iron-on to work.

Close template window when done printing to return to this screen.

If you have trouble with frames, type an L at the end of the template URL when it comes up and hit ENTER, the frame will disappear.

 

Dragon Tales template 1 (makes 2 shirts) - one with Cassie and Emmy and the other with Emmy and Max.
There's also a "Dragon Tales" word that you can put near the image, on a third tshirt or where the pocket would be
