This is a great idea for making crafts using transfers from old family photos or clip art. You can make quilts, pillows, wall hangings, whatever else you can think of.
Make your own fabric sheets by ironing a piece of 100% cotton fabric to freezer paper. Trim to 8 1/2" x 11". For best reproduction of color and detail, we recommend using a smooth fabric with a thread
count of 200 or higher.
Trim all threads around the edges before printing.
If you cannot print your fabric sheets immediately after constructing them, we recommend that you store them flat in a plastic bag. When you are ready to use, re-iron the sheet to be sure that the paper adheres to the fabric before printing.
An alternative to using the freezer
paper method is to use a full size laser adhesive label (one label per sheet) for creating fabric sheets. Position fabric onto sticky side of the label. Trim to 8 Â½" x 11". Adhesive labels can be reused several times before they no longer stick to fabric.
Most inkjet inks are water soluble. If you want your image to be colorfast, it will be necessary to pre-treat your fabric with a fixative like Inkjet Bubblejet Set This product is available at
both retail and online craft and quilting stores.
You might try setting the image with vinegar, but do a test sheet before you get too involved in the big project.
