All the crafters I know here in Gibraltar keep telling me I need to make some Gibraltar souvenirs for the summer visitors. However , I love to make things pretty and couldn't bear to spoil the look of a piece by marking GIBRALTAR across it.
Luckily, I have discovered the delights of computer transfer paper. You can put photos, text , anything...( it is important to find the print option which produces a mirror image)and then it's just a little snipping and a few seconds with a hot iron. Absolutely "pipsqueak"!
I'm excited about the possibilities of what I could print and simply iron-on, but for now I'm very happy to have produced a tasteful range of children's T-shirts. They do include the word Gibraltar but in a nice font and a subtle colour.
Truthfully, I would like them better without the G-word, but it's true people want to buy gifts and souvenirs from the places they visit.I know I am very susceptible to requests from my children to buy those kind of things.
I'm going to test them out at an Easter Craft Fair at Ocean Village on Saturday, then put them on sale at the Cruise liner terminal shop. I do hope they sell well!
I can't resist this photo...nothing to do with T-shirts...as usual Oliver can't keep his black and white nose out of any craft photography sessions...
But he's definitely not for sale!
