Mama’s got a brand new bag

Give your tote bag even more personality with witty phrase or image that is sure to give other parents a well-earned laugh. You can also check out our gallery of fabric transfer templates in Design & Print Online to personalise and add in your own clever quips.

Selfie kit

Treat your selfie

Make your own personalised makeup bags like this cute “Selfie Kit” idea. Although the bag is a lighter colour, we used a dark fabric transfer here since it helped the white parts of the design stand out. Dark fabric transfers use a white transfer sheet as opposed to light transfers which are transparent. Make sure to cut around your dark fabric transfer prints if you don’t want the white background to show through.

Hello my name t-shirt

Have you seen our "Hello my name is" name badges before? Why not use this classic design with fabric transfers to set up the perfect baby announcement. The templates are available in our design and print software. You can select from a variety of fonts to make the names stand out.

Kids t-shirt

They grow up so fast

Are you a new mother? First of all, congratulations! Second of all, your newborn is going to start growing very quickly. Now you’ll be able to commemorate each month with these custom baby onesies. Many crafters use labels for their baby’s monthly photos, but fabric transfers add an extra level of quality that won’t peel off.

Getting everything just right

Fabric transfers are great for making custom made shirts for events or as party favours. Create these hen party shirts for an unforgettable memento. But remember to keep in mind that light fabric transfer designs need to be mirrored before printing. This is because the design is printed onto a clear film that is ironed onto your fabric. However, if you’re using Design & Print, we’ll keep track of whether you’re using a light fabric transfer template and flip your print for you.
