okay so i recently bought a new hot iron transfer pencil thing, and it says to trace/draw your design on paper then put the penciled side down onto the fabric and use a hot iron over top until the design was  transferred. i did a small test to see how it would turn out, was pretty sweet, until i put it in the wash. BAM! it's gone.  is it not meant to be permanant?  how do i get it to stay??
(i'm stupid, i know. stop laughing you!)

I could be entirely incorrect, so please take this with a large grain of salt. Smiley

I do not think that these are intended to be permanent. I think they exist for stenciling / applique / etc, so you can get a design onto whatever you're working on.

Like I said, I could be way off my rocker here. Smiley

Yah, they are for what meri said...Just so you can have a pattern on your fabric so you can do things to it like paint, bead, embroider...or whatever you want.
So if you did your transfer like how you did and then used fabric paint and traced the line over, it should stay.
Good Luck!
