How Do You Remove a Messed Up Iron-On?

The big question has been all around iron-on projects that are already pressed to your wearable and then you realize one part of the design should not be there. AKA as I forgot to weed that part!

Trust me, this is so easy to do and so frustrating when it happens!

How do you remove that extra piece?

There are several solutions to fixing the error and anyone of them works quite well.

  1. turn the wearable inside out or go on the reverse side then apply heat from your iron (or use the mini EasyPress) and heat the area. After it is heated, take a pair of tweezers and peel off the area you do not want on your wearable.
  2. Cut a piece of iron-on in black or the color of your wearable and heat press it into place.
  3. Use a sharpie and write over the mistake. The issue with this solution is the fact that the sharpie ink may run in the wash.

IMHO - number 1 is the best option and works 99% of the time!

I hope this gives you some ideas of how to fix those nasty iron-on mistakes. I have found that the mini Heat Press is ideal for a lot of my iron-on projects - especially those that have a lot of curves or bends.
