Iron-on Elephant
When I bought the iron-on transfer paper to make the fabric bird banner I also bought a package of iron-on transfer paper for dark fabrics and tried it out this week with my flowery elephant on a dark green tee. The pretty triangle pattern linen bag is from Bookhou and the dark teal gossamer scarf is from Uniform Natural.

That is so awesome! Years ago, when I started painting mandalas - a friend of mine said "I could see them on clothing and bags." I bought the transfer paper, but the shirt I used had too much stretch to it and it washed right off. I should do it again. Thanks for the inspiration.

such a beautiful still life - I love how that transfer worked out - I think the dark tee made the image really pop.

I like how you combined the colours of the tee and the scarf. The image is cute, of course:-)
oh, and thanks for introducing BOOKHOU to me - I love the blog and the projects.

I forgot to mention the sleeves - they're great: a tee with a twist!
Girl, your talent for arranging still-lives is really something!

As someone new to selling artwork online, I am consistently inspired by your ability to photograph lovely "still lives" of your work. Absolutely LOVELY!

Love the t-shirt! I've had a box of transfer paper gathering dust - you have motivated me to give it a try! So great, Geninne!

This looks lovely. I've used those iron on transfers myself- I embroidered ove an image of Frida Kahlo, I loved my shirt, but unfortunately I was not super careful with the laundering of my t-shirt and somehow it found it's way into the washing machine and unfortunately it has started to peel off in places. Very sad.
So just a word of warning, Hand wash only!!!!

This is one of my favourite images of your...the elephant and I hope to buy a print of it soon to grace my home...on a t-shirt it's even more amzing..great ideal.

that's the best use of dark t-shirt transfer paper i've ever seen! i have never been happy with my results in the past....i love that you cut out the elephant instead of leaving a white background {i think that's what you did?}...'s wonderful!

Wow! The image is really striking on the dark t-shirt. I would like to echo what other commentators have said; I would buy a t-shirt on the spot if you had them in your shop!

Would you post a tutorial? I am not very crafty but your blog is amazing - I want to do everything now!
