Step 1: Stuff Uneed
soft thin flexible vinyl (got this at Walmart for 2 bucks a yard)
peel'n'stick fabric fuse (also from Walmart for 3.50)
white tshirt (walmart $4.50)
Step 2: Cut the Vinyl Out
Step 3: Center It
Step 4: Stick the Plastic On
Peel off the top layer to reveal the stickyness. Then very slowly and carefully align the vinyl's top edge to the stickyness and press it down. This is not easy to get right. Be careful to cover all the sticky surface with the vinyl. Don't leave any exposed or it will collect ink and fuzz and be yucky after a while.
There's a bit of a visible seam, but I find it acceptable.
Step 5: Stick Down the Edges
Step 6: Hardest Part: the Final Edge
I really didn't want to seal up the bottom edge because I just *knew* that it wouldn't line up right and and it would have wrinkles in it. And so it did. I might have been able to just leave the bottom edge hanging free, but it didn't seem right.
Cut out the last strip of fabric fuse, if you dare, and somehow by robot magic wiggle it under the bottom edge and remove the paper backing. If you a clutz like me, you may wind up with some wrinkles.
Step 7: Le Fin
Step 8: Caveats
1. I don't think it will survive washing or drying. But if it does, that would be pretty cool.
2. It definitely would not survive ironing. The vinyl will get all warply.
3. If you get the whiteboard marker on the fabric, well, it will probably stay there. Maybe it will wash out, but see caveat 1.
4. After a bit of erasing, eventually the dry erase stuff kinda gets rubbed onto the edges of the fabric creating a gnarly dirty looking edge.
N.B.: I first tried just sewing the plastic onto the tshirt with disastrous results. (see photo) (i can haz prozac now?)
