They are available in large and small sizes.  Simply remove from the package and iron on.  (You can cut the designs if you need to separate parts!)  The application is a breeze with the EasyPress™ and EasyPress™ mat, however, it’s also simple using your own household iron!

There are currently over 50 awesome designs available and more on the way!  I went to town with these, they are just so fun and easy to use.  Let’s see what I whipped up in minutes!

This Soccer Love design is perfect for my soccer-loving kids or would be perfect for a Soccer Mom shirt!  I love the distressed look of this one.  That is hard to achieve with regular iron-on unless you want to spend all day weeding out those tiny pieces!

It never fails that we remember we need a teacher appreciation gift during one of the busiest weeks of our lives.  It always happens to me!  I adore my children’s teachers and want to show them how awesome they are and now it’s so easy.  Whipped up this bag in minutes with this cute apple design.  It was a hard choice among this teacher design and this one too!  I told you it would be hard they are all so cute!

I cut apart this adorable Panda design and at first, I was going to put them on some gloves!  How cute would those be?  I really wanted to sport the panda’s NOW versus waiting until next fall so I substituted the gloves for a pair of slippers!  Gah, they are adorable.

Application of Iron-On Designs with EasyPress™:

The EasyPress™ is an awesome tool to have in your craft arsenal.  The solid 9 x 9 plate heats evenly making iron-on designs a breeze to use.  It’s portable, has a timer and visual thermostat that are easily adjustable so you get it right each time!

You can find a super helpful chart of recommended settings for your EasyPress™ with different base materials here.

Using EasyPress™ Mat:
