I made this little Halloween bag for my buddy Donovan....
Step One: You need to grab some transfer paper and a shirt/onsie/bib/bag/anything that will stay still works. They sell this for transfering to white fabric (light) or dark fabric, so depending on what you are doing, depends on what you purchase.
Step Two: You can create your own design via the paint, or you can purchase them on sites like Etsy and have them personalized. Here is the cat without a name. You can download it, put it in a word document, right click and move it to the 'back' and then type the name in whatever font/size you want. I then did 'print screen' or snag it to get the whole thing. There may be an easier way, but this is my ghetto computer skills at work.
Step Three: Paste the whole thing in another word document. Under picture tools one of the options is to rotate horizontal. You need the name to be facing the opposit direction b/c you iron this down and you want the mirror image.
Step Five: Cut it out, I leave a little bit of the white, it won't show up on the shirt, but it helps as you peal it off if a little wants to come up, the color will stay.
Step Six: Press it down (put pressure, pick up the iron, and press in the next stop, don't 'rub' it like a normal iron so it doesn'ts lip around). Let it cool, and lift carefully.
These are machine washable on the gentle cycle after they 'set' for 72 hours.
