tote bags?

I want to do iron-on transfers for a few tote bags and wondered:

1) Is cotton or canvas better for iron-on transfers?
2) Where is the best place to buy these bags?

Apologies if this is a question that is asked a lot. I am new to being crafty!

I found some cinch backpacks on eBay for 3.99 in any color. Cuts down on the unzipping at the gates. I think they are nylon.

Cotton and Canvas are good for iron ons. I've made many shirts and a few tote bags with iron on paper. Check out your local Michael's, AC Moore or Hobby Lobby. They usually sell blank canvas totes for pretty cheap and if you get your Sunday paper they usually have a 40% off one item coupon.

I got this tote bag at AC Moore and just used a regular iron on transfer. They were the perfect size etc for Disney. I made one for all thd women in the family.

Thanks for the feedback! I actually wound up trying canvas with great success. Hobby Lobby has a great selection of bags, and I am already plotting what kind of tote bags I am going to make the kids for our next trip.
