My Twilight T-shirt

I loaded my boys in the car today and went to the craft store to get my supplies. This shirt took me about 30 minutes to make from start to finish.

Black T-shirt
Iron on T-shirt transfers (for dark fabric)
Word/phrase/picture on computer that you want to print out
Scissors and/or craft knife
Iron with steam off
Red glitter glue

This is what the shirt looks like after you iron on the letters printed on the transfer paper. I almost left it like this because it looked so good, but alas....I like sparkles. I got this font from this website. They've got some fun stuff on there for Twilight fans.

Preheat your iron and follow the instructions in the iron-on transfer packet for printing and ironing on your letters.

My mom did some experimenting and suggested that you cut out each individual letter so it looks really authentic. You won't get any transfer paper line that way on your shirt. Once each letter is cut with scissors or a craft knife, then you can iron them on your shirt.

Last step: glitter glue! I used a toothpick to get it up right to the edge in some places.

Anyone interested in a Twilight shirt? Leave a comment or send me an e-mail. We can personalize it to your preference if you wish.

Brittney! That shirt is perfect!!! It's a rainy day and I am already expecting boredom around here today so I said I've got to jump on A Britt Without Boys to find a project! :) I'm thinking this might be the project to do. You and your mom are and have always been so crafty, great cooks, and an inspiration to me :) Thanx for sharing!!!

Katie, let me know how it turns out if you decide to do it. I love to see how people take a project and make it their own. Give my mom a call if you need specifics too.
