Re: [TheCostumersManifesto] Iron on transfers on knits
- i have successfully used the avery brand iron on transfers on tshirts, as well as woven fabrics.
the only problem i've had with them is that...if not trimmed to the VERY edge of the design...the part between the design and the edge of the transfer looks discolored.
the transfers that they make especially for dark colored fabrics needs to be lifted very carefully, or it will stretch the transfer and tear it.
be sure to read and follow the instructions carefully....
i didnt....and i paid the price.
but when i finally did (not much of a rule follower am i), it worked very nicely.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a brand of print your own design iron-on-transfer paper that works well on knit fabrics.
A colleague said her experience on Sunday with the HP brand was that, after transfer, the image cracked as she pulled on the knit fabric.
I didn't see it, but I suspect what she means is that the solid color parts of the design cracked when the shirt stretched.
Has anyone tried the Avery brand? They claim to be stretchable.
