This will be a quick post, as I have been away for work and have been pulling all-nighters, trying to finish up a big consulting project and I am so sleep deprived I’m a little loopy. I just wanted to share with you all what I think is a super cute custom sweatshirt and tote that I made with the adorable The Greeting Farm Hatters stamp set.
The following are the Copic colors used to color up these cuties:

Elsa (blue outfit): Skin: E000, 00, 21 with R30; Medium blue: B21, 24, 95 and BG45; Dark blue: B63, 66, 69; Hair: B60, BV31 and B21
Blondie (blue-green outfit): Skin: E000, 00, 21, 11, 04 with R20 blush; Grapes: V12, 09; Blue plum: B34 and 39; Strawberry: R83, 85 and 89; Blue-green part of outfit: BG45, 49 and 78; Hair: Y21, Y26, YR24 and E25
Patty (green outfit): Skin: E000, 00, 21, 11, with R20 blush; Green part of outfit: G85, 94 and 99; Yellow/gold part of outfit: Y21, Y26 and YR24; Red flower trims: R83, 85 and 89; Hair E97, 99 and 29
I fussy cut them out, scanned them into my computer, and printed them out onto Avery Light Fabric Transfers iron-on papers. After I ruined the first print out, I remembered to reverse the image so that the text I added would be transferable correctly. I cut around the image and text, leaving a thin border. Then I heated up my iron to the highest heat setting with no steam. I positioned the transfer onto a plain white sweatshirt, and using a good amount of pressure I ironed on the image. I did the same for a canvas tote I picked up at Hobby Lobby. After both transfers were well-adhered to the fabrics, I carefully removed the back release paper to reveal the clear images. Oh I was so excited to see that the images had transferred so cleanly and vibrantly!
I will be using this tote for all my summer time farmers’ market shopping, and even the sweatshirt is a great summertime piece for me since my hubby loves to keep the house air conditioned to a cool 72 degrees. Yes, I live in sweatshirts and sweaters all summer long. LOL
