+ No sew women’s deer top tutorial (red stag deer to be precise)

top: self made // button up: self made // pants: citizens // coat&shoes f21 // hat: h&m
This was so surprisingly easy to make I was quite shocked. It took 5 minutes to print and transfer it to my shirt. Now that’s my kind of project. I knew I chose the right animal when my husband was complimenting me even before I put it on. With this experience, I found this could be used for making a gift for the holidays or a cute way to update some hand-me-downs. I’m ready to add a deer onto a white onesie to spruce up Oli’s (previously Beck’s) wardrobe. Just a warning, buy quality transfer paper. The cheap stuff does not last long, cracks fast, and doesn’t look good. Now happy transferring.

Shirt – I refashioned a men’s top using this tutorial
Transfer paper (buy quality kind, I’ve heard Avery is good – not the transfer magic brand)
Digital image (found here)
1. Make or buy a shirt. I made mine from my flattering tee tutorial.
2. Print an image on transfer paper as instructed on the package.
3. Cut image out. Cut it out very close to and around the image. I wish I had cut mine even closer.
3. Iron print to shirt and let cool.
4. Peel paper off.



  1. I LOVE it! I definitely have to try this! :)

  2. Love this! Do you have a transfer paper brand you recommend?

    • I’m not sure, all I know is the brand I used transfer magic and it was pretty terrible. Maybe because it was cheap. So probably more expensive brand would be better.:)

  3. I love it! Where did you get the cute deer image?


  4. SO cute!! I’m with Rachael ^^ Where did you get the image? I lvoe it :)

  15. Deer or elk, it looks briliant, i’m so impressed! I’m wondering where you buy transfer paper (sorry if this is a silly question)?

  16. LOVE!

  17. I’ve been playing with transfer paper too, I used the cheap kind and you’re right it cracks really easily! I’ll need to pick up some good quality! have you tried it on stretchy material?

  18. Oh my goodness. That outfit is just adorable on you- loving the hat’s pop of color!
