Use Felt or Fabric at A Gem of a Challenge

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Busy day ahead here in the Simpson household as I need to finish the washing, ironing and packing for our jolly holidays tomorrow. And in a moment of madness we agreed to letting Jack invite 3 of his friends round this evening for pizza and to watch the football - which doesn't finish until 10pm and we have to be up at 4:00am for a 7:00am flight!!! But he did do well in his recent mock GCSE's and that was his best bartering tool lol!!!

So this is my last 'live' post before we go away and this time I'm here to share my DT 'make' for the new challenge over at 

and this fortnight the theme is

Please note ribbon and/or lace not included

So I decided to think outside the box and this is what I came up with:

I have to say that these were so much easier to do than I had expected :o)
I simply resized the gorgeous pre-coloured Chloe images - keeping the height the same for all the vests and then made them smaller for the pants but again kept the height all the same.
Then I printed them onto fabric transfer paper - the one I bought didn't even need to have the images mirrored :o)
Leave to dry for a few minutes and then trim around close to the image - peel off the backing sheet - place where you want the image to go - cover with silicon paper and iron on with a hot non-steam iron - simples!!!
 I have to say I was thrilled with the end result though and they hopefully will be arriving with the recipient - my scrummilicious Granddaugter Lola Arizona today :o)

As always Janet is offering  lucky 1 winner 
Individual Digi images
of the winners choice from PINKGEM DESIGNS.....

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my DT buddies.

Thanks for popping by to see my today.
If I don't get round to visiting you later I'll catch up with you when I get back a week on Monday.
Have a fabulous weekend.
