I was wondering if it is possible to print something onto an iron on transfer sheet, and then transfer that onto a sheet of tissue? Or would the heat shrink the tissue?

Not sure about the iron-on, but you can print directly on tissue with inkjet and laser printers.  Paul Bradley has a nice tutorial here:

Thanks Mike, I have read the tutorial, and have discussed it a bit with Paul. I'm a little leery of trying it because I have a bargain basement printer, and it goes through ink like a drunk at an open bar. It's not easy for me to get tissue, I have to order online, so I don't want to screw up the few sheets I have. I've picked a US Navy color scheme for my DeHavilland Otter and need to make the insignia for it.

Dollar store tissues work 'fine' for this.  Cheap enough to experiment widely.
Most Any printer works.  Just that some are better than others.
Dunno about your Printer going thru ink heavily.
 Could be either poor settings or It's Broken.
One can buy a fairly decent Cannon printer.. starting from 35$
