Spruce up your sum­mer style with a DIY “Res­cue” tee & ban­dana combo!

Modern Dog - - FRONT PAGE - By Re­bekah Chotem

Did you res­cue your dog—or did she res­cue you? Show your res­cue pride with a DIY t-shirt for you and match­ing ban­dana for your pup! We’ve cre­ated some adorable dogfriendly tem­plates—just down­load and iron onto a ban­dana or t-shirt for a su­per cute (and su­per easy!) pet project.


• 100% cot­ton t-shirt or ban­dana (we rec­om­mend

a lighter colour so that your trans­fer stands out!) • Iron-on transfers (avail­able through most craft stores or

of­fice sup­plies stores for around $10) • An iron • And that’s it! To­tally easy.


1. Down­load tem­plates here: mod­ern­dog­­cue­proudDIY

2. Insert Iron-on pa­per into your printer, mak­ing sure it’s in­serted the right way up.

3. Print the tem­plate onto the iron-on trans­fer sheet and al­low to dry for a full five min­utes be­fore han­dling (though we know you’ll be itch­ing to get your paws on it!)

4. Cut out your de­sign leav­ing a nar­row mar­gin around the edge, but don't cut too close or it will be harder to peel away, and jeop­ar­dize the crisp edges of your de­sign.

5. Set your iron to the high­est cot­ton set­ting, and pre­pare a hard sur­face (not an iron­ing board as it’s too soft).

6. Po­si­tion your de­sign face down and ap­ply firm pres­sure with the iron, while smoothly iron­ing over the tem­plate. This re­quires some arm mus­cle, so be pre­pared! And make sure to care­fully fol­low the iron-on in­struc­tions. Be sure not to iron too long or you'll dis­colour the edges of the trans­fer!

7. Peel away the tem­plate sheet and voilà! a stylish de­sign for you or your de­serv­ing pup.
