Note: This item is not shipped.
Skill level: for all, Time: about an hour
We found this cute pet costume at the dollar store but knew it needed more bling and some visual interest. Any "witch" would want it that way! Fusible Iron-on Threads make the job fast.
- felt witch's hat
- Kreinik Iron-on metallic threads in your choice of colors. We used 1/8" Ribbon and #16 Braid in 6700 Cantaloupe (glow-in-the-dark orange), 6090 Black, 6200 Daffodil Yellow, 6255 Autumn
- home iron or craft iron
- Kreinik Press Cloth
Note: if your iron is not Teflon-coated, you will want to use a press cloth between the thread and the iron, or apply a Kreinik Adhesive Press Cloth to your iron (several sizes are available). Apply the Adhesive Press Cloth while your iron is cool and unplugged.
- Turn your iron on to the highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly.
- Lay your fusible Iron-on thread at a starting point, cover with a Teflon press cloth, then press for several seconds until the thread adheres. Continue working this way, working your monogram in sections. Note: the Teflon keeps the heat-activated adhesive in the thread from sticking to your iron. Some home irons are already Teflon-coated, but the mini craft irons will need a sheet of adhesive Teflon or a piece of Teflon (both available from Kreinik).
