DIY Baby Graphic Tee

DIY Baby Graphic Tee

DIY baby shirt

I've only had this DIY baby shirt post in the queue since March. Oh man, I gotta get it together. There is not enough time in the day ... especially with a one year old. I love the concept of graphic tees on kiddos, but I don't often love the sayings. So I thought I would make my own. I loved a Zara star tee that I saw, and "star" was Flynn's first word. So I thought it would be perfect to make Flynn man a star tee. I like this DIY baby shirt because it works for a boy or a girl. This will take you about five minutes to make. It makes a cute DIY baby gift too.

The shirt on the left is the Zara tee I was telling you about. I can't find it anymore online, so it makes this DIY baby shirt (on the right) an even better option! BTW, how cute is Flynn-man's friend Hayes? He is the son of one of my besties from college. She, her husband, and their three kiddos came into town to visit at the end of March, and it was one of the best few days ever! I miss them so much. Flynn-man and Hayes are only 12 days apart ... how cool is that?

To make this DIY baby shirt, start by downloading the star template I created for you. Cut out the star, and trace the star onto the iron-on vinyl. I really like the iron-on vinyl as opposed to regular iron-on transfer paper. It holds up much better, and the quality of the color is much better. Cut out the star, and place it onto the tee where you would like it. Make sure the plastic side is facing up.

Place a towel over the star, and iron over the towel. Rather than sliding the iron, using medium pressure move the iron up and down on top of the towel. Hold the iron down for about 60 seconds each time. Make sure to cover each section of the star, especially the edges.

Take the towel off. Make sure that each part of the star appears to be adhered to the shirt. If not, repeat the last step as needed. Peel the plastic covering back.
