Customized Raced T-Shirts

Last weekend was the Race for the Cure here in DC, my mom's older sister, her twin sister and 2 of my cousins came to celebrate the 15 year anniversary of my mom's recovery from breast cancer. The Komen Race for the Cure provides race t-shirts to runners and walkers who are registered for the event but I wanted to do something to set our team out.

So I took the logo that I designed and printed them on iron on transfer paper:
(Yes, these are printed flipped, that is how you do it with Iron ons...)

Then we cut the logos out and placed them on the sleeve of the prewashed shirts:

And followed the instructions to iron them onto the shirts, instructions by product vary, so be sure to follow the ones that come with your transfer paper.

Here is the finished sleeve -
We then took an old bed sheet left over from my bathroom curtain project and made these flags by transferring the logo onto a square, then hot gluing them on wooden dowels:

All we had to do was spend $10 on the transfer paper to create 10 shirts and 10 flags to give our team a custom look for this amazingly special day.
