I have been trying out different techniques for team caps. You know with the Logo of the team and the name all spelled out. Well, any hoo. Todays lesson was in Iron On Transfers. And the results were ... mixed. I mean filled with great features. Such as having your team name easily read by drivers in passing cars looking through their rear view.
The next great, um, feature is seeing how interesting the effects of types of transfer paper. Notice how the top one is not so much with the easy reading. And the bottom one looks wonderful when you hold your laptop up next to a mirror.
The nice thing is that, after reading the entire directions, I learned a new way to put fancy images on caps. I also a few ways to make them interesting as well as fancy.
I hope you enjoyed this time at Mary's Craft Corner. A quick shout out to Peter D. - my peep over at Team Alameda. Fun guy to work with. :) I am glad he liked the image ( you know once I fix it).
I have decided to go to Philly a day early to see the sites. I will be downtown near the Armory. I would love to hear your suggestions of must see sights. So far I know I am going to go to Independence Hall.
I have been trying to do a little silk screen printing. Well, I have been stenciling and stamping (with my own hand made stamps and stencils). It is turning out really well. I even did a wash test and it worked! Now more team caps... I hope. And I can design my own fabric. It is just hard to find axolotl fabric in the shops these days. Coelacanth fabric is pretty much extinct too. However, I am going to make some! With glow in the dark ink too. Nice.
Pictures some time soon.
Made a cap for a great gal named Kim. She came by the new shop to try it on and pick out trims. She has great taste and the cap is super cute. Win Win.
