Emoji Polo and Pins DIY!

I love emoji!  If I could write an entire letter with just emoji, I probably would.  Since I'm also a huge fan of wearing polo shirts, I decided to refashion a few of them with an emoji logo.  It's much more fun than a boring alligator or dazed looking tiger, don't you think?  While I was at it I made some fun pins for my jean jacket.  One day I'll grow up and start dressing like a grown man, but in the mean time I'm going to have a little fun!  Big love, xoxox, Mark!
That is not a POOP!  It's ice-cream!
My new favorite black polo!
 I almost put a pizza emoji on this, but I thought people might think
I was a delivery guy!
Love the little cat!
Check out the short video tutorial here!
Iron on transfer paper (I like Lesley Riley's TAP)
Cereal box cardboard
Pin backs
E-6000 Stitchless (Iron-on glue)
White cotton fabric
Emoji to print out
 Print out the emoji on regular copy paper
Glue two pieces of cereal box cardboard together
Glue the emoji to the cardboard and let dry
Carefully cut out the emoji
Add a layer of Diamond Glaze to the top and let dry
Turn over and add a layer to the back
*This will make the cardboard shiny and super hard
With E-6000, add a pin back and let dry
Print out the emoji on the TAP paper
Cut them out and iron them on cotton fabric
Carefully cut out the fabric emoji
Add a small amount of E-6000 Stitchless to the back of the emoji
With a press cloth, iron the fabric emoji to the polo
*Experiment so you get the hang of it BEFORE you iron it on the polo
You're done!
