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.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
