HTV on Polyester

DIY Home Decor

This is a tutorial on how to do iron projects for synthetic materials.

I was on a filigree kick for a while and converted one of my designs to a pattern suitable for a throw pillow.

It actually turned out really well and looks super elegant on my couch.

It turned out to be quite an easy project. The best part of making iron on with throw pillows is you don’t have to worry about the HTV peeling off too much because it doesn’t get washed as frequently.

    Tips for Iron-on Polyester

    Use the Teflon Sheet that comes with the HTV

    I just did a corner of the design at a time because it fit underneath the iron.

    I left the stuffing in because it provided extra counter pressure for the iron in. If the pillow case is a little wrinkled, just iron it first to flatten uneven texture.

    HTV on Polyester Temperature Setting

    You want to use a low temperature for polyester because it burns easily. I put it on the synthetics setting with my iron which is about 280 deg F.

    I then go in 10 to 15 seconds increments. I check to see if the design sticks after each round.

    Warm Peel HTV on Polyester

    It is important to take the transfer paper off when the HTV is still warm. You don’t want it sticking back on to the transfer sheet as it cools.
