Add detail to the shamrock by topstitching its edges, or use the decorative stitch of your choice.

Insert the wax paper or cardboard into your T-shirt, to prevent the glue from penetrating the back side of shirt.

Press your fabric and apply a line of Liquid Stitch to the back of the stitch line. Place on your shirt and let dry.

Following the instructions on the package of lettering, apply your letters.
