My name is Carli, and I’m an Iron-On Transfer-aholic

Check out some of my latest creations:

Cayden turned 9 months on November 22nd, so we commemorated his 9th month with a fat pumpkin!

For his 10th month, December, it will be remembered as his 1st Christmas as well, so he’s getting a special 2-sided onesie!  The front says, “Cayden’s 1st Christmas”

and the back say’s “10 months”

Here he is modeling it! or running away from the camera, or trying to attack the Christmas lights or trying to eat the broom . . .

Nia had a b-day party to go to today, for her best friend at school, so I made her and her friend matching personalized t-shirts and some undershirts, these make great gifts and the design possibilities are endless!  I love playing with different graphics, fonts and colors! 

(I apologize for the poor quality of the photos, I was running late for the party as always and wanted to take a quick shot to post)

They both got a kick out of having matching shirts. I bundled them up with a cute Hello Kitty gross grain ribbon from Target’s Dollar Spot and bundled it up with her other gifts and we were on our way. I’ll be making these for X-mas gifts for the kids in our family as well, who doesn’t like to wear their names on stuff?
I even iron transferred some terry cloth bathroom hand towels, with inspiration from Beth’s cute little tea towels at The Stories of A to Z.

Now, it’s probably not recommended to use these transfers on terry-cloth, but I gave it a shot anyway–Sure they’re not super practical for use, but they look pretty darn amazing if you ask me?

(in our master bath “J” and “C” monogram, I am super impatient so the transfer peeled a little, as you can see in the pic on  the right, but really, who’s gonna be looking at that?)

And lastly I made some homeade Christmas stockings this year out of an old pillow case, if you’ve ever slept over my old house in RI, you’d know the one, it used to be in our guest room, now it is two stockings:

(My garland was falling, oops! and my lights are just thrown up there!)

So they’re not perfect, actually they are soooo far from perfect, but they’re cute, and they’ll hold our Christmas goodies, and they match my living room and that’s all that matters, right?  I’ve got 3 more to make! 

Spread the love

    I love your onesies….what type of transfer ons do you use? The ones I tried keep peeling off. Maybe I am missing a step? Some advice would be much appreciated. Thanks for visiting my site too 🙂

    When I saw your title I was thinking, she needs to go see Beth, and then I read further and it seems like you already found her–she is so sweet and so funny! I love the onesies–I don't have kids, but would definitely do this when I do. I used to help an old bf's daughter make shirts with her handprint on them when she was young, and it was so cute. Great idea.Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog!

    Hi there! Welcome to blogging! 🙂 I scrolled down to comment on your too cute transfer projects and had to laugh out loud when I saw the family plate below, because it's mine! hahaha!! Too funny! 🙂 It's a piece I had an artist paint for our family, it perfectly lists special things to our family! I love how you made it your own with the chalkboard paint!! Let me know if it's ok for me to post a pic of your project on my blog, 'kay? theblessednest@gmail.comBlessings,Stacey
