School T-Shirt Freebies :)

A few weeks ago I made some t-shirts for school so I thought I would share what I came up with.



The designs are free, but you have to make the shirts :)  Don't worry - it's SUPER easy!!!  All you need are white t-shirts and t-shirt transfer paper.  I got a pack of three heavyweight t-shirts at Michaels.  I used a coupon and just paid a few bucks.  You can get the transfer paper at Walmart, Target, Staples, etc....


I have the images all ready to print onto the transfer paper - the images have to be flipped (mirror image) to transfer properly so print them out just the way they are!  I teach First grade but I added some Kindergarten, Second and Third grade designs too! 

Click on the image below to download the printable:

 

If you don't want to make a shirt, these would be great on totebags, aprons, etc!  

After I made these, my daughter and her BFF wanted me to make them matching Volleyball outfits so I thought I'd post a picture of that for fun :) 





Have a GREAT weekend!

    1. These are great. I hate to ask but could you add one for our Pre-K teachers? My HS students are going to make these as a gift for our elementary mentors and I'd hate to leave Pre-K out.

  21. It should already be flipped (mirror image). I checked it and it appears that way to me - check it again and let me know if something happened to it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. So simple! You are wonderful! :) How do they hold up when you wash them?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wash inside out in cold. I try to remember to hang them dry (I've made some before), but sometimes forget. The dryer can make the image crack after awhile. They do fade over time. They last a good while though :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. What a wonderful idea! THANKS!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. could you post a 4th grade. This is an amazing idea.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Mrs. Gilchrist, do you happen to have the design not flipped? I was thinking of trying it on a dark shirt and I know the dark transfers don't have to be flipped. Thanks so much for doing these designs. You Rock!

  32. These are sooo cute! Unfortunately I teach TP (transitional primary)--does anyone know where there might be a TP site or blogger. I am new to this all! I don't know how much work this involves, but would you consider making a TP ricks transfer? Thanks, Fran

  33. Super excited to make the t-shirts. I just printed the kindergarten Rocks. The stencil seems smaller than the one first grade one in the photo. (I realize Kinder. is one long word vs. first grade is two words but it still seems smaller.) When printed Kinder. rocks measures approx. 4x6 is that correct or did I do something wrong?
    thanks~Amy in Alaska

    ReplyDelete
  34. Amy - That doesn't sound right. It should have printed on a full sheet (8.5 x 11). Did you download the pdf from google docs? I just tried it and it worked right for me. I'm thinking that you may have done something other that download the original pdf or if so, maybe google docs was on the fritz at the time (that happens occasionally).

  35. TP Treasures - if you give me your e-mail I will send that to you.

  36. Thanks so much for sharing these! I actually messed up my first one...note to self, double check to make sure it's not upside down :( oh well...But I did make 2 more for my teaching partners and I'm super excited to give them a back to school gift! Thanks again, I love how they turned out (well except for my messed up one :)

  42. Is there anyway to get the 100th day to say Kindegarten instead of school? I thought it would be fun to do these for the class and let them all autograph each others that day....

  53. I love these. Thanks so much for sharing. I was wondering how you got yours to look so good. I am using a transfer paper, but you can see all the white around it. Did you actually cut all around every little piece of the transfer paper or am I just using the wrong kind. This is my first try at this. :)

  54. I teach Pre-K...what program did you use to make these? I would love to make a Pre-K rocks t-shirt:)

  66. I am not sure how I got to your blog but I am so glad I did. Thanks for sharing these wonderful decals. I made all of my students Yellow Field Trip shirts with our Tiger Logo on them and I also used the transfer paper. I was super easy and the students love to wear them. I am excited to make my own and wear it for field trips too. Thanks again.

  72. I am going to do this with my 4th grade class.. I was wondering if you could tell me the program you use so I can put the kids names on the back of their shirts or the school name? It is their last year in the elementary school and I want them to have something special.

  74. I love the 100th day shirt!!! Thanks for sharing. I have one question, though. Yours looks flawless, like it was screen printed. When I ironed mine, it has a yellowish tone and you can see where the transfer paper is. Did I do something wrong? Thanks! I'm still wearing it! :)

    1. I don't know. The only thing I could think of would be maybe you ironed too long and burnt it a little???

  84. I love the 100th day and 1st grade iron ons but I was wondering if there was a way to get more then one on a page. I would like to make them smaller so that we could iron them on as a small side logo on a v-neck shirt? Thanks for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  85. Love your iron ons! I realize technically Lunch Ladies aren't part of the academic world, but wondering if you've ever designed a "lunch lady" iron on transfer for those of us who like to wear cute aprons in the cafeteria? Our kids love it when we wear cute stuff!
