My son attends a private preschool and they have particular rules about what kind of bags the kids can use. I don’t agree with the rule, but I have to comply. Every child attending Pre-K 1 or Pre-K 2 has to use an open top bag with straps. So to make it at least somewhat enjoyable for my son, I promised to create a bag of his choosing. Since he LOVES Angry Birds, he said he wanted a bag with a big piggie on it. I happen to find the perfect picture for his bag, but the trick was getting the picture off of its origin to its destination.
To make this cool bag above, I had to buy a few materials. I bought an open top black bag. I also found a T-shirt with the featured design which met both my son’s criteria (a big piggie) and had an appropriate theme for use as a school bag. I also bought some pages designed to make iron-on transfers for dark colors.
First I put the T-Shirt onto the scanner and scanned the design into my computer. I made a few adjustments and made the below picture:
Then I printed the design on the transfer paper, trimmed it and prepared it to be ironed.
Then ironed it on the bag…
Then I added some iron-on letters for his name and done!
