Iron on Transfer OOT Bags

Recommended Posts

This is one project I have been putting off just because it seemed like it was going to take forever and be a lot of work. I was wrong.  I followed the directions found here:

http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/57860/diy-tips-from-a-designer-iron-on-transfers

 

There were only a few steps I had to tweak so it worked properly. 

 

- I tried to flip my image, but when It printed it printed the wrong way.  I figured out that when I selected Tshirt transfer on my printer (Canon printer) that it automatically flipped the image for me. 

-I didn't use as long of a time to transfer the images onto the bags.  I only used about 75 seconds per transfer.  The first couple I did I used about double that time and it turned a bit yellow, I'm assuming it was starting to burn a bit.

-I used a shelf from a bookcase (upside down) and covered it with a pillow case.  I placed that on my kitchen table.  (I didn't want to burn my kitchen table)

 

If I could redo it:

-I would place something, maybe a pillowcase, in the bag.  I found that some of the bags the transfer kind of stuck to the opposite side of the bag.  That may be because I wasn't using super high quality bags.

-I would color my monogram completely with color so that there was no white areas in it.  This way you won't get the glossy, yellowy glue looking space. 

 

I'm still happy with the results.I was really surprised that I didn't ruin any bags, I was prepared to ruin a couple.

    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah
