T-shirt printing

An old t-shirt design printed using fabric crayons (wohoo for Crayola!).

Unlike sublimation or printed designs, a hand drawn transfer needs to be drawn in pencil first, coloured in reverse, hard and without any specks; it takes more time. The design is sketched onto regular recycled cartridge paper. Using fabric crayons is probably the most difficult in comparison to markers too - there's no uniform edge, the crayon can flake... Bummer.

  • 'Ukht' design, Arabic for 'Sister', written in Arabic above in orange (reversed) and phonetic translation underneath.

  • Design flipped over, covered with felt and ironed on high temperature onto tee. Ta-da!
