Often I’d love to have a monogrammed items but either I don’t want to pay to get my items personalized or I don’t like the selection of items some stores offer the service for. I’d like to personalize tote bags or robes with my name or quirky lingo and make cool tees for kiddo. FashionArtProjects.com has generously given me a chance to do just that by providing me with several of their fashion crafting kits free of charge. Sweet! FashionArtProjects.com has many easy to use products to help make your DIY fashion journey fun and quick!
The Iron-On Rhinestones & Studs I received practically had my mother’s name written all over it in invisible ink! She fell in love with the designs immediately and wanted to dazzle up her shirt. She chose a cross, dove and HOPE design from the packet. These were extremely easy to use and took me less than 5 minutes to complete. I simply cut out the shape I wanted, peeled of the backing and placed them on the shirt where she wanted them to go.
I then turned the shirt inside out, pressed with the iron for 15 seconds, then ironed in regular fashion for 10 seconds. Next I let the shirt cool down a few minutes, flipped it back to the right and slowly peeled the clear plastic off. Voila, cute refashioned shirt for my mother!
She also wanted the black, drawstring canvas bag that FashionArtProjects.com provided. She actually needed it! Cupcake, that’s what I call my mother, wanted the bag monogrammed. So we used the Iron-On Letters. These were actually a bit troublesome for me to use. I tried following the directions but something was not going right. I thought I applied enough heat and sealed the edges as instructed but after trying four times I couldn’t make it work. Some letters didn’t seal at the edges so I couldn’t get the paper off, while other didn’t stick to the bag at all.
I made it work in the end by doing it my own way. I followed the directions for the letters that worked and did the rest my way. I peeled the paper off the letters, pressing them firmly on the fabric, then covered with a cloth and ironed them onto the bag. It worked very well. 🙂 Just when I thought I was finished, a pink smiley face Iron-On Applique caught my Cupcake’s eye. This was beyond easy. I just placed it on the bag, covered with a cloth and applied pressure with the iron for about 15 seconds. Then flipped the bag inside out and applied pressure with the iron again for about 20 seconds. Done!
I’m excited to get all creative and use the Iron-On Glitter Sheets for my tote bags and tank tops. I am super excited to let kiddo pick out some stencils from Walmart so we can use the Stencil Spray to make him some cool t-shirts. I think he’ll really have fun with creating his own shirts…after all fashion isn’t just just for girls!
