I want to try and do an ironed on image from the 'net onto a canvas tote bag.   Would the Avery paper from my local store be good enough for such a thing?   I'm afraid I have a limited time frame to get this project done and cannot order anything from the internet to finish.   So I thought I would ask here and decide where to go after I get some feedback.   

The only things I have read about the avery papers concern tee shirts, and a tote will not ever be washed, really.   So no worry about the washing fears....

Help?

Ok, so I tried to iron on an image with the Avery paper onto a canvas bag....and it sucked.   Quite a bit of the image stayed on the paper in flecks.   Since I need this project for a swap rather badly, any ideas?   I'm going to buy another bag and just keep this one for myself.  I guess  I'll just iron for a longer period of time or something.

There are other types of printable transfer paper- try the june taylor ones for dark t-shirts.  They have it a Michaels.  A bit more expensive but they are thicker and look nicer.  Good luck.
