DIY Original Love Letters Shirt
My son asked for a special shirt and when I was scrolling through Creative Fabrica, I found this beautiful design that hit me right in the heart. I instantly knew that my son would love it and he did! I’m not sure who originally developed this design concept, but I hope that you are as impacted by it as we were. So let’s get into the tutorial!
What you will need:
100% Polyester Shirt
Heat Press (I used my HRVRont Heat Press, check out my review here)
Sublimation Printer and Paper (see my Beginner’s Guide to Sublimation for more info)
XOXO The Original Letters Design from Creative Fabrica – There are hundreds of thousands of graphics to choose from on this site. Everything you need to start designing mugs, shirts, and tumblers. Any theme you can think of! You can enroll in a membership with access to all the elements in their catalog or purchase designs a la carte at a reasonable price.
I created a quick video to show you how simple this project is to make! Check it out below!

Now that you’ve seen the project in action, let’s walk through the steps…
Download the image and print it on sublimation paper from your sublimation printer. (Don’t have a sublimation printer?You can also cut the image in Iron On Vinyl and apply it to any shirt you want!)
Press the shirt to remove the wrinkles and moisture. Add a piece of butcher paper inside the shirt to prevent the ink from transferring to the back side of the shirt. Don’t forget to add butcher paper to your heat press pad, you don’t want the ink to transfer to the pad as well. Heat the Press to 390 degrees and set the timer to 60 seconds.
Lay out the shirt and determine the center of the shirt with a Tshirt Guide. Place the print face-side down and secure it with heat-resistant tape. Cover with butcher paper and press.
When done, remove the butcher paper to reveal the awesome design!
What do you think? Wasn’t that a cinch? I hope you give this project a try and make your own Original Love Letters Shirt! This would be a great fundraiser project for your Church’s Youth Group or even a great addition to your Church’s Bookstore inventory!
Happy Crafting and God Bless!
