I love a good heat transfer project and this one rocks! I made it in honor of my dad who had vintage 1950's pin-up calendars in the back of his car shop when I was a kid. He even had a necktie with a pin-up girl printed on the inside! For this project I used the BEST product around for home printer heat transfers......It's Lesley Riley's TAP (Transfer Artist Paper) from C&T Publishing, and it's amazing. You can heat transfer on to anything! BTW, if you want to win some, just leave a comment on my video in the comment section and you'll be entered, OK! Good luck!
Here's the how-to video
My dad had these all over his office wall!
Today's Rockabilly looks inspired by the 1950's
Light color necktie
Home printer/copy machine
Load a sheet of TAP in your copier
Print out your pin-up
Place the tie on the image and trace around it
Cut out your tie shape
Make sure it fits on the tie. Cut it a bit smaller than the tie so that none of the edges are hanging over the edge of the tie
Trim off any excess white and around your image
Position it on the tie
Press and peel according to the directions on the TAP package
