Group Embroidery Project – Summer Creativity Challenge, Iron On the Flowers Part 4

Portrait all flowers ironed on for embroidery

The iron on transfers for the Pansy, Marigold, Rose and Iris were successful! …Okay, somewhat successful.

😉

Since we have the larger design of 4″x6″ over the smaller felt fabric of 3″x4.5″, placing the design over the fabric is a little tricky. I held it up to the light, shown in the previous post HERE, just prior to placing the items down on the towel to be ironed.

Hold the iron down to the transfer. I didn’t move the iron around much. I thought it might ‘blur’ the final image. So, I just let the iron sit on different areas of the design.

The trickiest part is “the peek”. While still holding the iron in place, try to lift a corner or section of the hot iron transfer up in order to peek under the design to see if the iron on pencil is successful. Here you can see that the transfer is very light onto the white felt. But, um…hey?! Isn’t it awfully DARK on the towel! Just my luck…it transferred really well to the protective fabric and not to the embroidery fabric. 😐

After peeking and seeing what resembles a transfer line, go ahead and remove the iron and the iron on transfer pattern. Hopefully, there will be a wonderful outline left on the embroidery fabric. Here, again, you can see the wonderfully DARK lines left on the toweling and the somewhat visible lines left on my embroidery fabric, felt.

Here you can see the size difference in the iron on transfer design and the actual design area of felt fabric. As you can see, only a portion of the iron on design in captured on the surface to be embroidered…the rest, of course…is…
