Playing with transfers again........a "Gathered Strap" Tank Top

These heat transfers are just too much fun!

Willow's Blue Dotty Tank With Gathered strap

I made this a few days ago for my niece Willow. Starting with a simple tank-top pattern, I ran a line of hand stitching across one "strap", gathered it, and then secured the stitching on the wrong side. Of course, this was done after the transfer was applied.

The transfer graphic was rendered at www.typogenerator.net from a melange of words.."Willow, Peace, Swim, Water, Love, Smile"
I printed it onto a sheet of T-Shirt Transfer Paper that you can get at office supply or craft stores, and applied it according to the directions.

I haven't seen my nieces in several months...but tomorrow my sister, her husband, and the girls are coming for a visit. I am so excited about seeing them...I sure hope that they like their new tops!

Very cute! Enjoy the visit, I'm sure they'll like their new tops - not every girl has an aunt who will make custom tops.

Great job Pam! My 11yo now would like one! :) gonna have to get out my transfer paper.

Quick question...how did you finish the neck and arm edges? Can't tell from the photo.

Thanks!
