A little craze has swept through these parts. Minecraft. Its a web based computer game where the world is built out of blocks and you mine to find things and you craft and create things. Its not that boring - there are creepers and zombies and stuff but in the scheme of things it is not a shoot em all dead kind of game. Its more like lego on the computer.
Being a bit of a micro trend means it is difficult to buy themed items for the boys who love it - which means you have to make it yourself!
For a presemt (or two) we are making tshirts and it is really simple.
I found an image that I liked.
Using my hi-tech software (powerpoint!!) I printed the image onto tshirt transfer paper.
*This is the point to note. I buy transfer paper for black shirts. The paper is then white, not transparent which means your image is actually much thicker and gives a truer colour. Another point to note is with this method, you do not need to reverse your image .
Peel the image from the backing paper and place it where you would like it to be.
