The 365 Day Challenge

My goal is to create something every day using something from my craft cupboard. I am a self-confessed fabric addict and just love to fossick through thrift shops and find treasures.

So here goes. Live, love, recycle and get crafting.

Day 318 - A pantsformation

The true title for this blog post should be 'What not to do with transfers'. It all began with a plain pair of black size 1 stretchy pants and some transfers. From there it seemed to go from bad to worse.

First I put the iron straight onto a transfer, transfer ruined, iron not so good either. Then I chose a different set of transfers that I thought were separate transfers but they were one big one so when I cut it out crudely and ironed it on it looked ridiculous. After another hour or so of trying to work out how to fix it I settled on transferring on top of a transfer, which didn't work out too badly. Whew!

Melted transfer - first mistake.

These 2 cuties were supposed to be one on each side.

Badly cut out transfer :-(

Transfer over transfer.

The recipient!

What to do next - go outside and bathe in wet sand for a bit.


  1. OMG!! He's so funny, lol...and just as cute as he can be. And of course, I remember how my boys loved those wet sand baths!!!

    You learned how NOT to do transfers, eh? The end result is adorable.


  2. He melts my heart every day that little man. And he certainly has a knack for being a grommet. :-)
