I'm not going to give a whole big tutorial on these, but basically you trace your childs hand, let them color it, try to resist the OCD in you to make them color in the lines, and then iron it onto whatever you choose. In our case, we ironed them onto white fabric and then I stitched them onto their t-shirts. (I used embroidery floss and hand stitched everything, but you can use your sewing machine, or if you want to hand stich them, but don't have embroidery floss just double or triple your thread to make it thicker.) Taylor and her cousin Owen had alot of fun "coloring". The only drawback I have found is that you have to hand wash the fabric that you use. So I wouldn't suggest doing this on something your child wears often, unless of course you love to hand wash laundry, I don't. I took a bunch
(I am just amazed by the difference in these two hands! I can't figure out if Taylor has little hands, or Jaxon has really big hands. The one on top is a almost three year old, and the bottom one is a four month old!)
Sorry, I know it's hard to see on the white fabric.
My iron was set to medium-high (5-6) and it takes a while to transfer, so be patient. If you can resist the urge to lift the paper and admire your child's handy work that would be best. But if not, just be careful not to move the paper around.
Cousin Owen colored his hand too!
Here they are on the shirts, obviously Taylors isn't finished, but I wanted to show it to you anyway.
So, am I really that far out of the loop, or is this technique new to you to? I hope you try this with the kiddo's, it really was alot of fun!
