Ive done it a few times with mixed results……when i had problems it was that really light fleece that flakes off easily, with a fairly solid large iron onpic…other times esp with thicker fleece its been ok….just go really slowly, esp when going over it to make sure it adheres well….

also make sure that you are not getting to much heat on the surrounding fleece, use the tip of your iron, dont put the whole iron over it like you would with a cotton or denim material….you can also if you are concerned (i HIGHLY reccomend), taking it with you to a fabric store, and finding a smiliar material and color, and iron on pattern, and doing a test run so you dont ruin the original if you dont like it….you may also be able to get it embroidered professionally if you dont like how the test iron on turns out….

I think you should just take it to a stich cart at the mall (the kind that stiches on hats) and have your message embroidered on. I did that to robes for my bridesmaids…their monogram and it turned out well- plus it will last thru many washings.
