My sister in law, Julie, loves photography about as much as I do. When I was thinking about making a gift for my new niece, I thought it would be fun to incorporate the camera and indoctrinate the young one early;)  I don’t do much with iron on transfers, and I know there are other options to do this (silhouette that I don’t have?) but this was pretty quick and easy.  Hobby lobby had the transfer paper and the onesie.  I got some fabric from my stash, and once I figured out how to invert the camera images like a mirror (in photoshop: IMAGE -> rotate canvas -> flip canvas horizontal), it was painless. Rotating is important because iron on’s are put on backwards. Though this is a baby onesie below, this can be done on any shirt as a gift for any photography lover (or yourself).  I have a camera/strap shirt I got at Target years ago (

I also wanted to put a fun “camera strap” on, because its all the rage in photography now, dontcha know?

Though my sis in law shoots with a Canon camera, her last name is actually Cannon with 2 “n’s” so I made a play on words and put 2 “n’s” on this camera.  Oh, and I just had a free photoshop brush with a camera that I used.  Any picture would do though.

Ironed it on, and started peeling it off…

Then, I just hand stitched my fabric in a few spots.  You can also iron that on if desired. I braided the yellow part to make it look chord-like.

Voila!
