I was in the craft store today, looking for an iron-on transfer pen. And I found one! However, the box said that the material that I used it on had to be at least 35% polyester for the transfer to be permanent. Luckily, there were these little door hanger pillows for just $1 and they were 100% polyester. So, to initiate my pen, I made this:






The image is a Kurt Halsey from stencilry. Love his work.

Hope this keeps the roommates at bay. Kidding. Sort of.  Wink

aw, that's so cute!  I love lime green, and that is a really great picture.  And, you're a night owl too, so you're ok in my book.   Wink

I found out about these awesome pens from a fellow Craftster with her post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=23933.0

There's a bunch of info on that thread. Although, remember that the material must be at least 35% polyester in order for the transfer to be permanent. Depending on what you're using it for, you may or may not want the transfer to be permanent. Basically, you draw a picture on normal paper with the transfer pen. Then you turn the paper face down on your material and iron it flat. Less time gives you lighter transfer, longer time for darker transfer. Good luck.
