How to Make a Stars-and-Stripes Tee for the 4th of July in Less Than 10 Minutes
Fourth of July is nearly here! Whether you’re partying at a beach picnic or heating it up with a backyard BBQ, you’ll wanna make sure you’re wearing the perfect patriotic outfit that will blow everyone away. To get you started, we’ve got a chic, minimal tee with a red and blue striped design. And get this: It only takes 10 minutes to DIY!
Materials and Tools:
1. Download and print our template on a sheet of transfer paper.
2. Cut the image, leaving a 1/4-inch border.
3. Place the transfer paper, image side down, onto your t-shirt and iron for at least one minute. Use the piece of cotton fabric to protect the transfer paper.
4. Let everything completely cool and slowly peel off the transfer paper.
Print our template onto the correct side of the transfer paper and set “photo quality” on your printer.
Cut it out, leaving a 1/4-inch border.
At this point you’re ready to transfer your image, so place the design onto the t-shirt, use the piece of cotton fabric to protect the transfer paper, and iron the template (image side down) for at least one minute — or better, two. Check the producer’s instructions for the best results.
Lastly, let everything completely cool, then gently remove the paper and enjoy your brand new tee!
For max perfection, don’t hesitate to pair it with a denim skirt and flats to channel your inner all-American girl.
