There are heaps of ways you can create your own pug t-shirt but I wanted to share with you the easiest way I could find to create your own unique pug t-shirt. And this t-shirt won’t even take you 20 minutes to make.
All you need to create your own DIY Iron Transfer Pug T-Shirt is a pug image printed on paper, an iron-on transfer pen, a plain t-shirt and an iron. I picked up a plain white t-shirt with a pocket for about $3 at K-Mart and the iron-on transfer pen I picked up off eBay for about $8 plus postage.
I found a really cool pug silhouette image on Etsy to use on my t-shirt. You can find a lot of cool pug images on Etsy for cheap that are great for personal DIY projects like this. You will need to print this out to a size that will suite where you are placing it on the t-shirt. I went fairly small so it will sit nicely on the pocket of the t-shirt. Keep in mind though that it will transfer to the t-shirt the opposite way to how you print it so you will need to invert the image to be the way you want it on the t-shirt.
Now all you need to do is trace and colour the print. You may just want to outline it or fully colour it in with the iron-on transfer pen. Once you’ve done that, place it ink side down on the t-shirt in your desired spot. Be sure to place a piece of cardboard under the t-shirt to make sure it doesn’t bleed through to the back of the t-shirt. Now carefully iron the print for 1-3 minutes. Be sure to not move the print so it doesn’t transfer twice.
Now you have your own unique pug print t-shirt. Wasn’t that easy? And the best part is you can use that print about 3 times and still get a very nice print on your t-shirt.
