I'm Batman t-shirt made using the Teresa Collins Chic and Scary cartridge

Hello, friends!

Today I have another t-shirt that I made using the Teresa Collins Scary and Chic cartridge. I cannot stress enough how easy this was to make! I easy cut and it looks like a Batman t-shirt. Well, at least my son thinks so. This did get me to thinking that I could make Batman and Superman shirts using those licensed cartridges! Who knew!

Very Cool Melaine! I didn't think about that either.... I got Batman & Superman & Spongebob & ALL the Disney ones.... The Incredibles would be cool too! OMGOSH! The T-shirts would cost a fraction of the cost of buying a license T-shirt! I'm drooling now.... OMGOSH!
Now I gotta a question for ya too.... Dose the Heat n Bond stuff stay on the material? Through the washes? I'm only asking this because I've read reviews about it not sticking after washing? I mean I know your suppose to wash the item first then attach... but what about after it's been worn and it needs to be washed? Does it fall off? Or stay on? I ask because I notice you've had your Mom sew around the items lately... I can't sew worth crap! I would have my Mom do it for me as well.... I just want all the info I can on this so I can try it and feel good about what I'm making.... Thanks for any answers! :o)
