When I saw this iron on Skull applique I had to make a Shirt. Not only does Kathy designs her own craft line, she runs a Blog a Youtube channel and is a full time Mother and Wife.

Things you need
Wash and dry your shirt.
I cut the collar off of my shirt but you could leave it on if you want.
Place your shirt on a hard surface then place a piece of cardboard in between your shirt.
Lay your skull applique down, plastic side facing up.
Place a cloth over your applique.
Iron over the applique for at least one minute.
Tip *I checked mine in the corner every so often.
I had to go over my applique a couple of times to make sure it adhered well.
Carefully peel off the plastic.
Now let's make him sparkle.
The best part is you could use your imagination,
color him anyway you want.
I placed Tulip Glitter Glue in different places
then sprinkled it with different colored Tulip Glitter
One color at a time and I waited about 10 min between each color
before I shook the glitter off
More Glue and More Glitter.
Let it dry for about an hour or so to let the glitter set up.
Now let's add a few sequins.
Take you fabric fusion quick dry glue and place a small amount on the back side of a sequin and place them on the eyes, teeth,on the heart.
Put them wherever you want.
These Fabric markers by the Crafty Chica are so vivid and so easy to work with, I love them.
I used them to add different colors where I did not want glitter.
Let your new creation dry over night then wear out and display your craftiness.
I can promise you I will be creating more fun projects
with Kathy's Craft line in the weeks to come.
Lots of <3,
