Bajaj Iron & Ironing Board
Sewing Machine & Thread
- Find the image that you want on your cushion cover, if the image has words, make sure to print the reverse image.
- Print your image on iron-on transfer paper.
- Place a cushion case underneath the transfer paper, then trim the paper around the graphic and place it where it will go on the fabric.
- With the Bajaj Iron, iron on top of the paper into the fabric. Make sure to apply a lot of pressure for best results.
- Slowly pull out the paper, make sure that the image stayed on the fabric. In case it didn’t fully transfer, simply iron it again and apply lots of pressure.
- DIY Printed T-Shirt
Tees are the perfect gift for any kind of occasion. However, if you’re tired of always buying a new t-shirt to gift, why not reuse an old one? Just take a plain t-shirt, preferably white, and transform it into something incredible with this hack.
Sheet of Printer Paper
- Pick an image or design that you want printed on the t-shirt and stick it on the sheet of printer paper.
- Scan the image and reverse it, then print it on a transfer paper.
- Take a plain t-shirt and place it on the ironing board. Cut the design print from the transfer paper and place it on the t-shirt.
- Iron on the design with Bajaj Iron. Make sure to apply pressure evenly so that the print comes out right.
- DIY Printed Shoes
If the person you’re planning to gift owns a pair of Canvas shoes, you’re in luck! You can just borrow it from them for a while and using a cool design print and the Bajaj Iron, transform them into the hottest fashion trend this festive season.
Iron Transfer Paper
Pattern to Print
- Print the pattern of your choice on the iron transfer paper.
- Cut the paper into the shape of the shoe or the places where you want to print. Use the Bajaj Iron to iron the pieces of paper little by little.
- Iron the pattern all over the shoes. You can use a pillowcase over the paper to avoid burning the print or the shoe.
- Once you’ve ironed on all the areas, peel off the paper slowly. Use the tip of the iron on any areas that you may feel haven’t been printed right.
- To complete the transformation, you can also replace the laces with ones that go well with the new pattern.
