Iron On Letter T-Shirt
Create a custom letter t-shirt with HeatnBond and your favorite fabric.
Materials and Supplies Needed
This project requires an iron but note that a heat press would also work great!
The first step is to design the shirt. For this one, I wanted an old school style letter t-shirt with a quilted touch. This same project could be done with one large piece of fabric for the letter cut-out or multiple pieces sewn together to make a large piece.
Use the pattern below to cut out the letter H from your fabric. If it is multiple pieces sewn together, make sure it is ironed FLAT and any excess fabric from the sewn together pieces is cut away on the back. When cutting shapes from a pattern, my preferred method is to use straight pins to hold the pattern in place then cut around it.
Once cut out, remove the pins.
To add a background color, pin the cut out “H” to a larger piece of fabric the cut around it, leaving however much extra width of color desired.
The next step is to apply the HeatnBond to the fabric. To do this, Cut a letter H the size of your final fabric designs by pinning it to the GREY side of the HeatnBond UltraHold Iron-On Adhesive For Dark Fabrics! I chose the DARK Fabrics Adhesive because I was using black fabric on a black t-shirt.
Step Four – Applying Design to Shirt
Carefully remove the pins and IRON the fabric designs to the HeatnBond following the directions in the packaging. This works with a regular iron but could also be done with a Cricut Heat Press.
Remove the white backing from the OTHER side of the HeatnBond and carefully place your designs on the T-Shirt EXACTLY where you want it to go.
Iron grey side DOWN to T-Shirt. Iron it in place, again following the directions in the packaging.
The final designs doesn’t have to be sewn to the shirt. The HeatnBond will hold it in place. However, if you want a stitched look, it is okay to add stitches.
