Manhattan Transfer

I created a design from vintage illustrations, added some type and printed it out on "T-Shirt Transfer Paper for Dark Images". Who says it's just for T-Shirts? They're like stickers that you iron on. It's a nice way to have some fun with simple, small sewing projects. Under 8 1/2 x 11. And the nice part about this project is that the image doesn't have to be reversed, so you could scan a photo or make a copy right onto the Transfer paper. I ironed it on to a piece of leather, but any somewhat-smooth fabric will do. 

I got this idea from one of my favorite blogs "Just Something I Made"

One of my favorites

One of my favorite blogs is Jessica's of Such Pretty Things. She was visiting NY and I invited her to tour the bakery. She's so talented and it was such a pleasure to meet her in person. Check out her blog and site.
