Customer Reviews

Very disappointed that I could not use these fab designs.
Katherine Dobson
These are NOT really iron ons, at least not the way I remember doing iron ons as a kid.
Akaijen
There is NO longevity at all so a waste of time and money.

I loved the designs. The execution was difficult and the results were bad. Here's what I did if it helps:

I put the transfers on two kids white cotton t-shirts. I learned from a test that the transfers did bleed through, so put an old pillowcase in the shirt. This solved that problem.

My kids cut out a ton of the smaller transfers, including letters, and this was really difficult. You can only iron on one at a time, and each one takes a few minutes & pushing down. So the ironing part literally took two hours, and when the iron goes over an already-transferred design, that one fades and bleeds. So the initial results weren't perfect, but the kids were pretty happy with their cool t-shirts.

But kids are kids, and the t-shirts got all kinds of food on them. The worst part came when I put them through the wash with some Oxi-Clean. The designs completely came off. What a disappointment after all the work and anticipation!! I haven't told them yet, but I'm not looking forward to it.

With kids, delicate washing in cold water doesn't cut it, so I would not recommend this product for anything that may get stains on it. Maybe some of the other recommended uses (canvas bags, clothing for extremely neat people) might be more appropriate.

There are two versions of this book. I bought this version at Joann's and they were horrible. I had the same problems everyone else had. Later, I went back to Joann's and there was the same book, but with a sticker on it that says "NEW AND IMPROVED" or something to that effect. I love the graphics, so I figured I give it a try. The new version is much, much better. It has the same graphics, but they switched to the the traditional, old type of iron-ons. If there isn't a sticker, just look at the pages: the old version you see the colorful graphic, the new version you see the white backing of the graphic. I don't know how they will hold up to washing yet (I'm sure it will need air dried), but at least you can get them off the page!

Save your money. These are hard to apply and wash out in the wash.
I wasted a lot of time and a lot of money on failed attempts, even after closely following the directions. Back to the drawing board for these.

I am disappointed in these iron-ons because I thought they were absolutely adorable and was excited to give iron-ons a try. I followed the directions carefully (make sure iron is hot, apply heavy pressure for 3-5 minutes, etc.) and still the transfers turned out very light and the details weren't visible. Many of the iron-ons are small, and there isn't extra space around the actual picture, so when I lifted my iron off of the garment, the iron-on/transfer sheet came with the iron. (And I don't think that's how it's supposed to happen.) I am new at iron-ons, so maybe this is all user-error?! (And I welcome any helpful hints, because I'd love to make these work.)

This is an adorable product, but you have to practice with it a bit. The designs are unique and so creative! Perfect for making onesies and t-shirts. You definitely need to put a piece of wood directly under the fabric, so it won't bleed through onto the rest of the fabric or onto your work surface. The iron-ons themselves don't stay in place like a sticker, so be careful moving the iron in circles- you might be better off just leaving it sitting! And give it at least 5 minutes to set. I made some great presents with these!

these iron on designs are wonderful, whimsical, and will inspire you with a million uses. the only downside is that they are tough to use on many fabrics. they only work with lightweight smooth fabrics and only on white or cream backgrounds.

Although I loved the artwork, and application was not difficult, they wash out in the laundry. I was left w/ faded blobs of color on my t-shirts. I gave the product one star b/c they were really cute the one time I got to wear them before gettting washed out.

While I really liked many of the designs I saw featured on whatever blog recommended this (sorry, I don't remember who it was), most of the iron-ons were not in line with my tastes. If you're more familiar with Sukie artwork and you already know you like it, then let me just offer the caveat that the pictures don't transfer very well. I've tried two--one on white cloth, one on a light brown. The white transfer was visible, but didn't transfer cleanly and the light brown was invisible. I'm sure the artists are lovely people, but I was disappointed in the product.
