Some things work, some don’t. On a recent shopping expedition to Jo-Ann’s Fabrics, I found two Halloween projects on the shelves I thought I’d try.
An iron-on decal and a fabric patch piece looked fun and easy. This also meant buying a white t-shirt and black hat with which to experiment.
The Witch with the Broken Broom
I started with the t-shirt. You iron the witch decal onto your item which transfers this plastic-kind of graphic.
This effort turned into a mess. Not only did the graphic not adhere well, it melted and smeared in some places—I’m sure I did something wrong. Whatever the reason, this witch isn’t flying anywhere so I’m calling her a bad witch.
Here’s the hat project. You simply iron on the little fabric patch and you’re done--somewhat. It worked pretty well except a couple of places along the patch edge wouldn’t adhere. No problem, a simple stitch around the edge fixed that.
I probably won’t buy these pre-made gizmos again. I’d rather make my own stuff using my computer and printable fabric. But it was fun and I learned from the experiment.

I hope that the cleaning recipes I’m sharing so far demonstrate the truly simple ways you can make your own natural products at home. None are hard to make.
I found the shaker jar at a garage sale.
