Things You'll Need

Tip

Before beginning this project, print two copies of the free palm tree print download on dark fabric transfer paper. Because canvas pouches often have a waxy finish, this type of iron-on transfer paper works best.

Step 1

Cut around the main palm tree image. Don't worry about the tiny crevices and precise details — you'll work on that part later. For now, focus on cutting around the general shape of the palm tree.

Step 2

Peel away the paper backing. Be patient, this part might take some focus and concentration.

Step 4

Now, carefully cut crevices in between the details of the palm tree's leaves. Use short, quick snips. Remember, you don't have cut every single crevice. Instead, trim the image every now and then to help add some depth and dimension.

Step 5

Place the image on the canvas pouch, printed side facing up. Cover with the protective tissue paper provided. Apply the iron firmly, moving around to evenly distribute heat. For most dark fabric transfers, about one minute of heat will suffice.
