    I've managed to do some very simple designs and practiced an iron on tonight. I used Avery transfer paper. It looked alright but when I washed it, everything cracked. Nothing in the instruction sheet about that. Anyone have any clues what happen?

    Had you washed and dryed the shirt prior to ironing on?

    If so, did you use any fabric softener?

    thanks for the tip about Micheals transfer paper. I have mixed results with Avery also. I will try this kind of paper next.
