Here is one of the 10... They all pretty much came out the same and not bad... Could be better I'm sure, but I'm happy with them.

18 month tshirts

I found the least expensive way to get these (Gerber 5 pack onesies) were from Joann Fabrics with the 40 or 50% coupons but I found out they don't carry the 3-6 month size! I had to go to BabysRUs for the 3-6 and they only came in a 4 pack..but they were on sale with the tshirts so of course I had to get them.

Make sure you get the Reduran hand cleaner This stuff is persistant. Even Acetone won't get it off well.

Made our first shirts yesterday.

A couple of tips I figured out. It's really hard to get in the folds of the small shirts, I banded them to tight. Use Saran wrap, not grocery bags to wrap them. Grocery bag ink will run. I panicked after 7 hours when it looked like the whole bottom (back) of the shirts were solid Blue. Went ahead and pulled them, rinsed and washed them. Just when I was about to go to bed.

Here's how they turned out









I was pleased with how well the heads shaped up. Here's what I did.
  1. Used Upholstery thread for basting
  2. Made another wrap of doubled thread to really cinch down the head
  3. Wrapped "neck" in (2) 3-1/2" 64 lb rubber bands.
  4. Hooked rubber bands over door knob to pull them and stretch them down tight
  5. Cut small hole in sandwich bag and slipped it over head
  6. Rubber band around hole of sandwich bag to prevent leaks

Thanks for showing us how to do this. Now to put our transfer in the middle of the head.

I was wondering (Pixiecrafts?) if someone could offer me some color suggestions. I'm looking on the Dharma website and am a bit overwhelmed.

I am looking to make shirts with a "carribean sea" feel, probably 3 colors with shades of blue/turquoise/green...

I had good luck making red/white/blue ones in the past, and I'm ready to "branch out"...

Does anyone have any favorite colors they want to share?

Thx-
-Lissa

PS no rush, planning for August 2013!

You have all inspired me to try making some shirts. However I can't seem to find waxed dental floss that isn't Mint - can someone tell me where you found it? I have all the big stores around me.

I used mint floss and it was fine. I never did post a picture of us wearing our shirts from November 2011 so here it is. I am getting ready to make some new ones for August soon

Amitrat you're shirts turned out great.
One more question if you don't mind - I finished basting my shirts but when I pull the string it's not quite an even shape. When I put the rubber bands around Mickey's head,how do I kept the ears from running past my stitching?

It won't be an even shape. It will look a little wonky, just pull the fabric out from it as best as possible.

And LOTS of rubber bands! I make my wad of bands between 1/2 - 3/4 inches wide. Some will run under, but that has worked well for me.

I don't use waxed - Glide brand (or the generic equivalent) works even better for me. That stuff slides right out!
