Decorating a canvas makeup bag with iron-on vinyl is so much fun because the possibilities are endless! Choose your colors, fonts, and phrases, and you can make the perfect gift for anyone. Or yourself! (some links affiliate)Supplies:
Canvas pouch (this one is from Michaels, but there are lots of options)
Easy Press 2
Easy Press Mat
Measure the blank area of the pouch and create the design so that it fits. Give at least 1 inch space on all sides.

Since this pouch has a lining inside, I made sure to put the small EasyPress mat inside the bag. This way there’s no chance of melting it together.
I also set the EasyPress 2 to only 275 to not damage the lining. The iron-on vinyl still sticks great at this temperature, and it won’t go through the laundry so it will for sure stay put.
Center the design and press for 30 seconds. Wait for it to cool, then peel away the plastic sheet.
