Here's my problem- I have tonnes of reusable shopping bags, but they all have store labels on them that I'd like to remove,
I know running a hot iron over it, the print will come off onto the iron, but is there another way?
I'd like to fade/ remove the labels from the bags so I can put my own images on to the bag.

Your best bet might be to cover them with a patch.

I had the same problem recently - and I painted over the image with acrylic paint, although fabric paint might be a better bet and not sure how long the acrylic will last before it flakes off.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

I would sew a patch over, or gesso over the image and paint over it.

A lot of the bags are finished on the inside as nicely as the outside.  I just turn the bag inside out.
