Many months ago Cassie showed me a Pin from Pinterest claiming you could use Sandpaper as Iron-On Transfer paper. The original Pinner, Alphamom, shows us that your children can draw on sandpaper with crayons and then it can be ironed onto fabric, like a shirt. Most of the supplies needed are things we have in our household and although I am sure I could have scrounged up an old tshirt or two for the kids to play with I decided to buy new shirts at only $4.44 a piece at Walmart. If you don’t already have crayons on hand- they are a buck a Walmart. You can also find 5 sheets of sandpaper for $2-3. The grit of sandpaper doesn’t seem to make a difference but I bought fine grit.
Sandpaper Iron-On Instructions:
- Allow your kids to color a picture on the sandpaper. Keep in mind that the picture will be reversed- so avoid letters unless your kids can write backward letters!
- Make sure the crayon is heavy on the paper. I went back over my kid’s artwork to really lay down the crayon wax.
- Put cardboard inside the shirt to avoid bleeding of the image onto the back

of the shirt as well.
- Place the sandpaper artwork face down onto front of shirt.
- Lay a sheet of wax or parchment paper on top of sandpaper.
- Iron the back for a good 30 seconds or so to melt the crayon wax and allow it to release onto the shirt.
- Clean up excess wax by placing a layer or two of paper towel on top of shirt and ironing over it.
How to Set the Image onto the Shirt:
Once your artwork has successfully transferred, Alphamom suggests putting the shirt into the dryer for 20 minutes. Also, she says it is a good idea to wash it separately on its first wash.
My PinTriedIt Tips:
Give your kids a sheet or two of regular paper to practice and know what they want to draw before finalizing their design ideas onto sandpaper.
Use old crayons. The sandpaper grit wears the tips down quickly and I hate to waste a good sharply pointed crayon! lol
This worked EXACTLY as Alphamom showed and claimed it would! This was a blast to do and the kids already have all kinds of ideas for other projects they want to do using the Sandpaper Iron-on Transfer craft.
