Iron On Transfers Extravaganza

So last Christmas my girls were lucky enough to have a visit from Father Christmas who was very generous and left lots of presents, so many in fact that they wouldn't fit into their stockings.  So I thought I would help the old guy out as I'm sure he will be equally generous this year! :)  I bought a pack of white pillowcases from Tesco for £2.50 and the using clip art and iron-on transfer paper I made personalised decorated santa sacks!

(please ignore my slipper, we're snowed in, slippers are compulsory!)

Here are some close-ups of some of the pictures......

My favourite!

Its also Miss C's 5th birthday this weekend and she is having a party at an indoor playcentre, (you know one of those hellish places with plastic balls!) for ALL her friends.  As she'll be running, climbing, sliding (screaming, hyperventilating) a pretty party dress isn't appropriate so I decided to make her something special.  Again using iron-on transfer paper, this time I designed the image myself (the butterfly fabric is by Ann Kelles Remix range).  Its pretty cool and really cheap, the t-shirt was from Amazon and only cost £3-4, much cheaper than the personalised t-shirt I bought a couple of year ago for £20 which faded on the first wash!!

She loves it!

I've been had a bit of an evening with iron-on transfer paper as I also made some robes for Miss M Harry Potter party in 2 weeks (yes I had both my kids in December, no that wasn't very good planning and no I wouldn't recommend it anyone.......) but I'll show you all that soon.  Keeping lots of it secret from her so can't take pictures at the moment but we made a Sorting Hat last night!!!!!  Dunno who's more excited her or me?!
