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.

    • Well this a kind of situation mostly, It will be awkward situation for your parents, They are mature enough and parent don't want to spoil the marriage of their children. Don't worry everything gonna be fine. just have good bottle of wine for them🍷
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
