BuyTshirtsOnline - T-Shirt Design Kit Review

We were very fortunate this week to receive a package from which contained a t-shirt design kit for us to try out.

I thought that Buytshirtsonline just sold wholesale t-shirts to workplaces so I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered they offered kits like this!

What's included
- White Fruit of the Loom t-shirt
- Fabric paints
- Dinosaur iron on transfer
- Instructions

They offer all kinds of transfers including Superheroes and Frozen but I chose dinosaurs because Elliot is really really into his dinos at the moment! The transfer was really good quality and Elliot loved the fact it was a fierce t-rex!

The t-shirt was really soft and great quality. I opted for a size 3-4 because I wasn't sure on the sizing but it does seem pretty true to size which is great as it means Elliot has a bit of growing room in it yet :)

I cut out the transfer leaving a 5mm edge and placed it face down onto the tshirt. The instructions said to iron onto it for 60-90 seconds but it took a little longer than this, around 3-4 minutes. After leaving it to cool, I pulled off the back paper and the transfer was complete - it looked really good!

Elliot was itching to get involved at this point so he told me what he wanted on his t-shirt (stars and spiders!) and I made a start with the fabric paints. The paints were a little bit gloopy but once I'd got used to how to apply it, it was fine. Elliot helped me with the spiders but he supervised most of it ;)

I left the t-shirt hanging up to dry overnight and the next morning it was all dry. The paint was quite puffy which gave it a really cool 3d effect. Elliot loved his t-shirt and couldn't wait to try it on!

These kits would be perfect for parties or just something to keep your kids quiet for a few hours on a rainy day!

*Disclaimer: I received the kit for the purpose of this honest review. All views are my own

  1. ROAR!!! Potato would love this too, though I doubt I could keep him just 'supervising'. He's a big dino fan too :)

  2. Aww! What great designs!! Looks like you had a lot of fun x
