When Sam requested that I make a video for his Mathtwitterblogosphere website, his instructions were to “be creative if you would like”. I would have loved to be creative and made up a song instead of just (awkwardly) talking. But, he needed it asap and since I was post #tmc12 and pre-company, I didn’t have the time or energy. However, when I was browsing through Michael’s last week I saw these and it gave me an idea.
They are iron on letters. The letters were only $3 for the entire package. And right below the letters, were blank t-shirts for sale – and for only $5.99! They were cute too, fitted, cap sleeved t-shirts in multiple colors, for $5.99!! I have never done iron on letters so $9 didn’t seem like too much of a risk. The result?
This was amazingly easy to do and only took about 10 minutes. I was amazed at the results! First, you have to prewash your shirt (no fabric softener). Then, you just cut out the letters and iron them on. I measured and would recommend starting your letters about 3″ away from the top of the shirt. I put mine a little too high. You need a piece of cotton to place over the letters so they don’t touch the iron. I just used a white cotton t-shirt. You only have to iron it for 30 seconds on each side. There are at least 20 different designs, so you don’t have to go all pink and sparky, unless of course, you want to!
