    So I found some awesome white canvas totes that I would like to use for our OOT Bags and I definitely want to personalize them. However, every iron on paper I see says it would be good to iron onto T-shirts. If it is heavier than a T-shirt to use a heat press! Those things are expensive!!! So I am wondering if anyone has used an iron on transfer on canvas before and how it worked out.

      Hmm.  I haven't tried personally, but the canvas fabric isn't going to be smooth, like a tshirt, which is probably why they tell you to use a heat press so that it adheres the right way.  Could you try buying one bag and one transfer and giving it a go?  Good luck!

        meeshamillz - I saw iron on transfer paper at Walmart the other day (in Canada but I am sure it is in the same in the states).  They had 3 or 4 different kinds and when I read the back there was one that said transfer onto canvas! I would definitely check it out, it was in the office section right near the cardstock and labels!  

         

        Hope this helps and if you go ahead with something let us know!! I will definitely be personalizing too!!!

         

        Oh also, where'd you find your totes?! Post a pic!!!!

          I will definitely try it and see what happens and let you know. I found the totes online. Another bride posted this link http://www.cheaptotes.com/ You may have to copy and paste it because the links don't always stick when I post to the forum from my iPhone.

              You can definitely use Iron On Transfers on your canvas tote OOT bags. I did this as have many other BDW brides. It takes some practice to get it right & you may mess up a bag or 2, but you will get the hang of it.

               

              If you do a search, you'll find tons of existing threads with Iron on tips & directions, as well as pictures of completed OOT bags.

              Here are a few threads that I found. Hope this helps:
