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.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
