How to Apply an Iron On Transfer:

1. Lay the item to be decorated on a hard, flat surface. Place clear transfer paper (with iron on) onto your garment.

2. Preheat DRY iron to 325° – 350° F (“cotton” or “linen” settings on most irons). Cover the iron-on with a thin, clean, dry cloth. Press with the iron firmly for 30-45 seconds.

3. Gently peel off the paper backing while iron-on is still WARM. If the iron-on does not adhere completely, replace and iron for an addition 20 – 30 seconds.

Decorating Apparel with mixed media is all the buzz these days!!  How can we decorate apparel with different types of materials is the question.

My friend Tina asked me to decorate some shirts for her. Her son was playing varsity football and she wanted to wear shirts to the game that had his name and number on it. She asked me to do her shirt because she also wanted shirt that were different from what everyone else was wearing.

So of course, put to the challenge, I designed one of her red shirts with the number 51 and Aguirre on the back in zebra print, outlined in blue stones. (The Dawson Eagle colors are red, white and blue!). I of course never took a picture of the shirt – so you will have to just image it!

A couple of months later – we added the leopard print vinyl letters outlined with rhinestones and the zebra print letters outlined with rhinestones on the baby n toddler website.

You can purchase these letters in 4 different heights.

The 2 or 3 inch letters are perfect for baby and toddlers, while the 4 and 5 inch letters are perfect for adult shirts or tote bags.

You can purchase animal print iron on names as shown below for an initial and name personalization!
