1. Buy this product or something similar.
It can be found at Walmart.
fabric transfer
2. Save your logo image as a picture.
This can be done by right clicking on the image.
my site
3. Paste the image into a program to resize and flip it.
I use Publisher.  I love Publisher.
It is very important that you flip the photo or your words will come out backwards.
4. Print the design onto the fancy transfer paper.
I do it in photo quality.
5. Iron the design onto fabric.
Because I love you, I will share two tips at no extra charge.  You're welcome.
Trim your design before ironing.  (see photo below)
If you don't, you will get an ugly yellow border around it.  You decide.
You probably don't need to iron it for as long as it says.
I think it says three minutes, but I can't find the directions right this very second.
You should lift the corner to check it after a minute or so.
6. If you want a bird, go here and follow the directions.
7. Make one for yourself and one or two or three to give away.
That will make you feel really good.
I may even give another one away to one of my bloggy friends.
I want to feel good again.

I love him/her. I want to have one, too. Is that bold of me? Well, first I have to figure out how to design a button.
(that was bold of me, wasn't it?)
