I bought a plain pullover on clearance originally intending to embellish it like this one. But when I got to the craft store, the only iron-on animal applique that caught my eye was the same one used in the tutorial and I really didn’t want a shiny fox. I wanted something cool, like a deer or an un-shiny fox.
I brainstormed for entirely too long while walking up and down the aisles of Jo-Ann Fabrics, then found myself back in the applique aisle, considering studded shoulders. I took the plunge, buying two sheets of iron-on studs. The next evening, The Clothes Horse was wearing an ASOS studded-shoulder pullover and I knew I’d made the right decision.
I caution you against buying a mini iron for, although it was invented specifically for use with iron-on appliques, it doesn’t get hot enough to achieve satisfactory results. It took far too long to convince the glue to melt and the studs to stick. Some are still loose. I should have purchased a regular iron.
