I took lot of pictures while creating this project so most of it should self-explanatory. Hope you like it and here we go –

Step 1: Put the tracing paper on the fabric and then put your halloween design (I used Halloween Cat) on the tracing paper and trace the cat. You can design anything like Candy Corn, Candy Man, Jack-o’Lantern, Vampire, Witch etc. that suits your project, occasion or event.

Step 2: Outline your design on the fabric with fabric marker

Step 3: Paint some polka dots around the cat or you can paint any other decorative design you want. You may want to keep the design simple because as you remember we want to do this under and hour, right?

Step 4: Paint the cat with color of your choice. I have used black.

Step 7: Now the fun stuff starts. We are going to use something called “Lightweight Iron-On Adhesive Sheet” and it is going to do part the magic we need to finish our “Halloween Kitty Iron on Sticker”. You can get them at Jo-Ann or Hobby Lobby or your local, favorite craft store.

Step 9: Stick the “iron-on adhesive sheet” to the back of your design fabric and then iron it from paper side. Please also read the instruction on the above image before you do this. If my instruction are not clear enough please leave a comment and I will try to and will be happy to help you out to the best I can do to get this right for you.

Step 12: Add running stitch all around the edge of the design to give strength to the fabric and to prevent the fabric from coming off the sticker. I have used black thread for the running stitch.

Step 13: Your sticker is ready and you can now put it on any t-shirt you want. To ensure that there are no wrinkles when you put the sticker on the t-shirt you may use an iron or any other heavy item.

Your “Iron-On Sticker Transfer Halloween Kitty is ready. Booyaa!!
