When I first made this amazing Unicorn Shirt for the Unicorn Magic Snack Pack Pudding Cups, I knew I wanted an accompaniment for others so I decided to celebrate the Dragon Treasure Snack Pack Pudding Cups, available for a limited time, with a Dragon SVG file. Create this Homemade Dragon Shirt for your child today and also shop online using the image below!

I headed to my local Walmart and picked up the Dragon Treasure Snack Pack Pudding Cups and some toddler shirts. I had some Iron-On Vinyl on hand but you can also buy it at Walmart in the craft section.

Supplies needed for your homemade Dragon Shirt

Time needed: 10 minutes

How to Apply Iron On Vinyl

  1. Cut your Iron-On Vinyl

    After you've uploaded your design to your software, you will want to cut your IronOn Vinyl shiny side down and be sure the image is reversed. Your machine should not cut completely through the clear carrier sheet. You want your vinyl to have a “kiss cut” meaning it has cut through the vinyl but not the sheet it came on.

  2. How to Weed Iron-On Vinyl

    Using a weeding tool or safety pin, remove all of the negatives of the image. Leave the part of the image that you want on your carrier sheet so that the image will stay where it is supposed to.

  3. Prepare your surface

    You'll want to preheat your clothing to get all the moisture out. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on what temperature you need to press at and whether or not you need to peel the carrier sheet off while it is still hot or has cooled down.

  4. How to Apply Iron On Vinyl

    Again, read the manufacturer's instruction on what temperature you need to set your Heat Press or EasyPress on. The most common kind of Iron-On is called Siser EasyWeed. To apply to a cotton t-shirt, preheat your EasyPress to 305F degrees and press your HTV for 30 seconds. Remove while the carrier sheet is still warm.

  5. How to care for your garment after applying HTV

    Wash your garment inside out and if you need to press, press it from the back. Hang dry or tumble on low heat.

After you’ve allowed your shirt to cool down a bit, your child (or you) can wear it right away. Again, be sure to wash your garment inside out and hang dry when you can. The heat from the dryer can cause the glue to warm again and warp your image.

Little boys love this DIY Dragon Shirt

Malakai has eaten these Dragon Treasure Snack Packs for lunch every day this past week, he cannot get enough. He especially loves the matching the colors of the pudding packs and dipping his grapes and strawberries in it, kind of like a fruit dip of sorts. He also enjpyed mixing the flavors too, lol.

With no preservatives and no high-fructose syrup, I love that I can give it to him and not feel like I’m loading him with the bad stuff. Choose the Sweet Green Emerald or the Rare Red Ruby Treats to pair with your favorite fruit.
