Have you ever tried Prima's Flocked Iron-On's?
I love them!! They arent that hard to use - with a little bit of patience with waiting :lol:

I found that it was easiest to put 'iron ons' in the 'Search Products' box up on the right hand side - and it brought up all the iron-ons in the shop! (very handy that box!! :P )

Here I've used the BUTTERFLIES on some canvas - works a treat! You can also find all kinds of canvas products by typing in 'canvas' in that search box too! :wink:

These butterflies add such a wonderful colourful effect!

So here's how I do it

Step One
Image
Mist a path under the butterflies... and placed them where I wanted them to go.

Step Two
Image
Using one of dh's old hankies pressed with a hot iron over the top for a good minute -it defintiely needs more than what they recommend... (of course relieving it every now and then..dont want to burn a hole in it!!! :lol: ) You can iron straight onto the plastic :shock: .. but I just dont have it in me to do it! Dont need to use steam either. :wink:

THen comes the patience part! :|

Step Three
Image
The trick with these are to let them completely COOL down before peeling. Lifting the LO off the hot ironing board and putting it on a cool surface helps speed the time up (or wave it about!!) :wink: Peel very slowly and re-iron any part that hasnt taken :wink:

Step Four
Image
Here's how they all look ironed on :biggrin:

A bit of Sewing
Image
I sewed some big stitches in between the butterflies and added bows - kinda felt like the song in Mary Poppins 'Lets Go Fly a Kite'

What about paper do you ask? Do these iron-ons work on paper???...
they sure do!

Here's one:

I've used Flocked Plants
Annalee Poetry

It does crinkle the paper slightly.

Here's the peeling process in this one:
Image

You can place one iron-on over the other as it takes really well.
The flocked iron-ions feel really velvety.


Here's one I did last year.. these flocked pink flowers arent in the shop now,(though the foam stamp is) but just to give you another idea how you can us them on another LO... I cut around on side of the flock and was able to tuck underneath them...

Cool. I've not attempted actually ironing on an iron-on. I've always adhered them as I had them overlaying a photo or some embellishment and I just didnt want to stuff it up.


will be giving this one a go.

Thanks girls...

Truly they are really easy to use, almost unstuffable up!!!

Just got to make sure that you give quite a good ironing....and then let it get COLD before peeling. And if you start to peel back and it hasnt taken... then it just needs longer under the iron.

easy peasy - just need patience with 'time'! hee hee! :P
