Hacked Crafty Chica Transfer Idea!

Here you see the Crafty Chica flocked Iron-on Transfer of a bird with a heat and rose – tattoo-inspired! Patrick drew this image and then we had the word “amiga” placed in the ribbon banner.

But what if you like the design, but don’t want the word amiga? Easy! Flocked transfers are awesome because they can be easily hacked to your liking. You simply take a pair of scissors (smaller the better) and carefully snip away the part you don’t want.

Here is the transfer iron-on, post-snip, to some fabric I dyed.


Now that the ribbon is a blank slate, I used my letter stamps and Tulip Soft Fabric Paint to put in my friend’s name. Now I can cut this piece of fabric and give it to my friend so she can use it in her fabric collage art! You can apply it on a T-shirt, jeans, etc. The neat thing is that now I have an “amiga” flocked iron-on transfer that I can use on a different project.
Here is the skull version – you can snip off the heart, the flowers, etc. Isn’t that so cool???
