Iron-On Vinyl! I think I'm in LOVE

Oh my goodness!  I've been contemplating using iron-on vinyl to make shirts for a while and just haven't really had a true need to actually buy some and do it.
This stuff is so easy, I think I'll be making several things from it.

I ordered from Expressions Vinyl and they are amazing to deal with.  I had a glitch or two in my order and called the company five minutes after placing my order and Kristen was so very helpful and gracious.  She fixed both issues and got the package out that same day, and it made it to me within two days!  Great service and shipping.  I will be using them again.

Then, just to top it off, this stuff is awesome and easy!

The sell an Easyweed vinyl, which means it is easy to pull out the parts you don't want as part of your design.
I designed my image and cut it out with my electronic die cutting machine using a setting that would cut the vinyl, but not the backing.  Speaking of the backing, that is part of the awesome product.  The backing works as the heat sheet in most cases.  I have a nylon sheet, but didn't need to pull it out, the backing was sufficient

So, just follow the heat settings for the appropriate cloth, iron in down for about 10 secs, peel the plastic backing when it is cool to the touch and your project is DONE!
