DE­SIGN A T-SHIRT

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Father Focus -

It’s re­ally sim­ple to trans­fer your tod­dler’s draw­ing on to a light-coloured T-shirt to make a one-off, cus­tomised, su­per-cute present for Dad. He’ll love it, and your young­ster will love it even more. All you need is a cot­ton T-shirt, fine sand­pa­per, wax crayons, ab­sorbent pa­per towel and an iron. What’s that? You’ve al­ready got all those things? Well, let’s get started!

1 First, get your tod­dler to draw a colour­ful pic­ture of her dad on fine sand­pa­per us­ing the wax crayons.

2 Go over her de­sign with the crayons, press­ing hard, so there’s plenty of crayon wax on the sand­pa­per.

3 Take a cot­ton T-shirt and place a sheet of card in­side it so that the de­sign doesn’t bleed through to the back.

4 Place the sand­pa­per face-down on the front of the T-shirt. Cover with a sheet of pa­per towel.

5 On the hottest set­ting and with the steam func­tion off, iron the lay­ers for 30 sec­onds, keep­ing the iron mov­ing.

6 Re­move the pa­per towel and care­fully peel off the sand­pa­per.

7 Re­place the pa­per towel and iron for 30 more sec­onds to set.
