Our product team created a really cute new product line called Pockets and Peekers Iron-Ons that’s available now at Michaels. It’s a mix and match program where you select a designed pocket (yes – it’s an actual, working pocket!) and a cute little animal image. You iron-on the animal to your t-shirt, or other fabric item, and then iron-on the pocket. The finished look is a furry little creature peeking out of the top of the pocket!
The Pockets and Peekers Iron-Ons are a fun way to decorate plain t-shirts or baby clothes, but you can get really creative in how you use them.
To use the Pockets and Peekers Iron-Ons, you will need the following materials:
A Press Cloth
And a fabric item that can be ironed
To begin, make sure your item is clean and freshly laundered (including new items). Pre-heat the iron to the highest setting, without using steam. Iron the area of the fabric where the Peeker will be placed to remove the wrinkles. Place the Peeker in position with the shiny side up. Cover it with the press cloth and press firmly with the iron for 30 seconds. Wait for it to cool completely and then test by slowly peeling the transfer sheet away. If the Peeker has not adhered, cover it with the press cloth and iron for another 20 to 30 seconds.
Next, it’s time to add the pocket. Remove the paper backing from the pocket. Pre-heat the iron to the cotton setting. Place the pocket in position with the adhesive side against the fabric. Press the hot iron on the pocket for at least 30 seconds, making sure you cover the entire outer edge of the pocket where the adhesive is. Wait for it to cool completely. Test the edges, and if they lift, repeat the previous process with the iron.
