DIY-Iron-Ons-_-la-la-Lovely

If you are looking for a last minute gift, look no further.  If you are looking for a handmade, DIY kind of gift, I’ve got it.  A few weeks ago, I happened upon Mike Perry’s  Unlimited Editions 20 Instant Iron-Ons and I hit the jack pot.  These iron-ons are the super coolest.  The iron-ons themselves would make a pretty rad gift but why not make it handmade by simply doing the ironing-on yourself?  You can iron on t-shirts, tea towels, totes, pillows and the list is endless (I love the idea of endless possibilities).

I’m making t-shirts for all of my littles and tea towels for some friends.  I made the bottom one for myself.  And she is a great little reminder of one of my favorite quotes by Nora Ephron, “Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.”  And hey, why not put some lovely words with your pretty little something that you are making?

I found my Mike Perry Iron-On book at Blick but you can also purchase them online here.

Now go get your iron on! xo

@jess, Glad you found it…. TARGET has the tea towels… it’s like a pack of four and I think they are Thomas O’Brien.
