I am back today with another little DIY tutorial. Last week I presented you my little pink cloud body using stencil printing. Today I want to show you how to pimp baby (and adult of course!) clothes by using iron transfers.
I bought these lovely transfers on the Isemarkt in Hamburg from the lovely shop kinder+raum. The designer Evy has got a stand on the market every Tuesday. It is of course also possible to buy the transfers online or in a couple of shops in Hamburg.
Here is what I made for baby love and how it goes:
1. Select the pattern you want to transfer and the item of clothing.
2. Position the transfer on your fabric and place it on something hard – a wooden kitchen table would work better than an ironing board.
3. Place a sheet of baking paper between the fabric and the pattern before ironing.
Set your iron to 150 to 160° C and press against the fabric with a lot of pressure for 20 seconds. It is important to press and not iron.
4. Peal off the plastic film et voila!
Here are a couple of examples of what I did for baby love.
The colourful bodies are from petit bateau, the white body and kimono style t-shirt from C&A, and the muslim squares from Budnikowski.
The patterns are from kinder+raum and the paper box is from Tiger
I hope you like it. It is a very easy and economical way of pimping your plain baby outfits and bodies.
Take care and have a nice day.
