Step 1: Prewash all fabric.
Step 2: Create a pattern. Using a file folder trace the shapes needed (a U shape and a bowling pin)
Step 3: Trace them onto fabric.
Step 4: Cut out 5 "U" shaped pieces and 1 bowling pin.
Step 5: Spray pieces with Fray Stop Spray.
Step 6: Using the directions below, apply Heat n' Bond (or some other iron on adhesive).
Step 1: Preheat dry iron to the silk setting. Place Heat N' Bond on the wrong side of the material. Lightly glide iron across paper side for 1-2 seconds.
Step 2: When creating your own design, draw design on paper side in reverse. Carefully cut out design. Skip to next step if you are working on a pre-cut or pre-designed item.
Step 3: Allow the material to cool, then peel off the paper backing. The adhesive should appear milky in color. Shiny, clear adhesive is a sign of overheating.
Step 4: Place the material right side up in desired position and iron for 4-6 seconds. The ironing time may need to be increased for heavier materials or when using several layers of material.
Step 7: Iron pieces onto a pre-washed shirt.
Step 8: Using embroidery thread, straight stitch (by hand) around all pieces. If you don't know how to straight stitch, refer to this tutorial.
Step 9: Using embroidery thread, create a french knot in the center of the eyes. If you don't know how to create a french knot, refer to this tutorial.
