Materials Needed:

  • iron-on T-shirt transfer sheet (for a light-colored shirt)
  • inkjet printer
  • iron and ironing board

Print T-Shirt Pattern

Download our free Father's Day pattern and print it on regular paper first to check the size and placement. Load the transfer paper into the printer, making sure the pattern will print on the correct side. Allow to dry completely once printed.

Cut Pattern

Trim closely around the outside edge of the pattern.

Iron On Pattern

Set iron to the cotton setting (no steam). Place transfer paper in the desired area of the shirt, image side down. Press iron onto the transfer paper for 20-25 seconds, covering the entire area (image 1). Let the T-shirt cool completely, then peel off the paper backing. Have Dad wear his special shirt on Father's Day (image 2)!
