Hot Iron Transfer

Hot Iron TransferYears ago, I picked up a vintage kitchen towel at an antique store.  It was in great shape and had a little dog hand embroidered on it.  It was adorable and I loved it but, because I kept it in my kitchen, there came a time where it got too stained and I wasn't able to get these removed.  It definitely made me sad, but I recently bought a hot iron transfer with vintage looking dogs on it at a yard sale.  Here was the answer to my problems. At this point, I had never used these types of transfers before but I was eager to decorate my kitchen once again with its adorableness.  I tried it and it worked wonderfully and hand embroidery was so fun and relaxing so I'm excited to make more!  Are you now intrigued and want to give it a whirl?  Watch our new tutorial!  We show you how to use hot iron transfers to create a design on aprons, towels, tote bags and even garments so that you can add a handmade touch of embellishment.  We also go over some common stitches used so you can start a new project today!

    I’ve tried Aunt Martha’s several times and could never get it quite right! Thanks for the video/how-to!

    Always want to put on one of these on what I sew. I am getting ready to sew a hospital gown for my daughter to wear after child birth would love to iron this on. I think they are beautiful and would like to follow the instruction on professor pincushion.

    I am making folios that are sized for the junior legal pad and for a 9X12 sketch pad. I want them to have a matching motif on the front that will help me readily identify the contents and yet look coordinated, as if they are a set. The dog featured in your video would be ideal.
