DIY Iron On Transfers

This past Halloween, we became a family of Minions.

To create the look we needed iron-on transfers of the Minion's logo. I was not interested in purchasing a $10-$20 dollar t-shirt per person so I started exploring other options.

Our local craft store has t-shirts in every color imaginable and added bonus; they were 50% off their normally low price.

Then I found this package of Avery Fabric Transfers.  We use a lot of Avery products at work and I am happy to find they have a lot of products for the home as well. The entire package cost $10.00 and had enough transfers inside to make a shirt for the entire family with an extra.

Getting the image you want on the transfer is easy. We just searched Google images for an image of the Minion logo.  The next step was to visit Avery's website. They have templates that you can use that do not require a download.

We uploaded our image and hit "print". {Well, of course we loaded the fabric template into the printer before that!}

After that we cut around the design, peeled off the backing and ironed it to our t-shirt.

Honestly, Avery makes this as simple as you can. These fabric transfers would be great for:

  • Class Reunions
  • Birthday Parties
  • Family Reunions
  • Halloween Costumes
  • Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties
  • Any gathering where matching t-shirts would make it better
  • or Gifts
If you are stuck on inspiration, Avery also includes an entire library full of clipart that would make great transfers. 

The total cost of our t-shirts was less than $5.00 per person.
