What do you do when your child’s school has a “Wear Green for Reptiles” day and you have a reptile? For me, I made her a shirt.
I had some iron on printer paper, and while it works alright, it isn’t that great. I wouldn’t use this route if you wanted to wear something many times, but for a child who will likely grow out of this shirt soon anyway, it didn’t seem like a gamble. It was really simple to do, so I’ll go through it for you.
Then, get a picture or image. I took this one of our Gilligan to start out.
Then I used picmonkey and the Avery Design and Print site to create the printable. For this, I liked using their tool because they know to flip the image for the iron on! I’d likely forget otherwise. I cropped the picture and added text with picmonkey and then added a border with the Avery site. And printed the result.
Then I followed the instructions for the iron on…I wont go through that in case you have different paper.
I think it came out pretty well! She liked having her pet on her shirt, though I think she forgot unless looking in a mirror. And she was the only one who wore green in her class, which is the usual. But we had fun with it! Today is pajama day, and I don’t think I’m going to go with that. No one does!
It has some cracks in it already, but I still think it’s cute.
What would you iron on?
