My boys love super heroes! We read super hero bedtime stories, collect super hero legos, and have
far too many an assortment of super hero toys. So I thought it would be fun for one of my Canon projects this month, to make my oldest son a Batman shirt using my new Canon iP8720 Crafting Printer. I predict this shirt will be on repeat for many weeks to come!
DIY Batman Shirt
G-man has had this gray shirt sitting in his drawer for awhile, but he refused to wear it because it “was boring”. So adding something “super cool” to it was definitely in order!
This was incredibly easy to make!
Batman Shirt Tutorial
- Printable Heat Transfer for Light Colored Shirts
- Scissors/Digital Craft Cutter
- I let G-man pick which image he wanted on his shirt. We found the Batman image in my digital cutter’s library and purchased the file. It was fun involving my little guy in my crafting and letting him help.
2. Load your Printable Heat Transfer material into your printer so that it prints the image on the heat transfer side, not the backing.
I love how vibrant the colors are. The Canon iP8720 did a fantastic job printing the color and detail of this Batman image.
3. Cut out your image. I used my Silhouette Cameo’s Print and Cut feature to cut mine out, but you can use scissors or a craft knife to do this.
4. Then iron your heat transfer decal to your shirt following the directions on the package. Mine took 30-40 seconds.
I have one happy boy!
Thinking about all the shirts you can customize? It’s super easy!
