There has been such a large number of people interested in this post!
I would like to thank DIY Home Sweet Home for featuring this post,
ever since the feature I've had a really large number of viewers who have
traveled on over to see what it's all about over here!
So thank you!
Since there has been so much interest I have decided it's time to give this post a little face lift.
It all started with these adorable little sachet pillows I made using fabric that I printed
images on using my ink jet printer.
So simple and not super time consuming.
(I prefer quick and easy projects)
All you need is the fabric (I choose canvas), spray adhesive,
a piece of printer paper, and of course an ink jet printer.
Here is a pic of the spray adhesive, to give you an idea of what to look for.
First, I spray the printer paper liberally with the spray adhesive (especially the edges) then press the paper onto the fabric. Be sure to smooth out any wrinkles in the fabric if any. I try not to fuss over this part too much, you only need it to stick long enough to print your image.
I let it dry for a good 10 minutes. I use the drying time to pick out the image
I want to use from the Graphics Fairy.
Then I carefully cut around the edges of the paper and as close to the edges as possible.
It is really, really important that you cut clean edges!
I would hate for you to try this and jam up your printer.
I took a risk trying this method out on my almost brand new printer.
However, since it worked....I am so glad I gave it a shot!
I took out all the extra printer paper before I place the fabric/paper in.
I placed it in the printer fabric side down and paper side up.
When your fabric comes out of the printer peel the paper off and pat yourself on the back!
There is usually some residue leftover from the glue, no worries.
You can wash the fabric and the image will still be there!
Pretty awesome right?
Keep those questions and comments coming, I love to read them!
Enjoy and Happy Printing.
