DIY Vintage Toy Makeover
Extra Hold Heat and bond
Fun fabric of your choice
Non toxic glue that is good for non-porous surfaces, I used " Crafter's pick, the ultimate non-toxic glue
HINT: you will only need glue if you have tight areas that can not be ironed
Here's a before Picture:
1.Create and cut out paper templates that fit the areas of the toy you would like to cover.
2.Iron heat-and-bond to the back side of your fabric
3.Trace your templates onto the heat-and-bond.
4.Cut out your pieces and iron onto your toy. Make sure to keep the iron heat low enough so as not the burn or melt the plastic.
*for smaller pieces that can not be ironed you can use your glue instead:)
*You can also glue all of the pieces instead of using the heat and bond, however I think it had a much more finished and durable look and feel when I used the heat-and-bond:)
5. (if needed) I took a fine sharpie paint pen and re-painted the letters, I really loved how easy it was to use!!
