Iron-On Art How-To
Color copy child's art onto iron-on transfer specifically made for color or dark fabric. Cut image out (make corners curved, not pointy, and transfer will stay on better). Iron on image to a nylon lunch sack, following instructions for the product; insert a piece of cardboard inside the bag when ironing so insides won't melt together, and a press cloth on top.
