Iron on Applique

 I'm headed to GMT this Thursday  with a pop of color.  Here is a project I'm putting together.  I'll be demoing an Easter version.  I'll post the full tutorial on my facebook page.  In the meantime, here are the steps through my camera lens at 11 pm on Sunday night.
 I bought some iron on vinyl from JoAnn's.  Depending on where you get it-it's one thing you can't always use your coupon for, so watch for the sales.  This was 50 percent off.  I cut out an A.  I'm giving this to my teammate at work who has a thick for black, white, and red.  I used a cricut to cut out the A, but you could definitely find printable block letters you could use to trace on the vinyl.  You will want to cut the mirror image in the case of words.
 I bought this pillow case online, but I've also found them in all different colors at Hobby Lobby.  You run your iron over the area where you are about to press down your design.  Then place your design where you want it.
 Place a clothe over your design and iron.  There should be a dull side and a shiny side.  You want the shiny side facing up.  Iron and hold down until your design in adhered to the fabric.
There is a clear film you can then peel off your design.  And now...it's ready to go and machine washable.
