freeze your fabric? [Sep. 8th, 2005|08:06 pm]
never forget how to fly...
[what i feel like |hyperhyper]

a few posts ago i mentioned how to use freezer paper as a backing for fabric so that it can be printed on. so i decided to make a little tutorial on what i did:




i hope this is helps clears up any confusion on the technique...



so, i have been trying to get all my stuff ready to sew. lots of cutting stuff out, and getting all my supplies together...like making more sew in tags.

i will be with coffee_drinker at the RISD alumni sale in providence, october 8th from 10-4. if you're in the area please stop by, it should be great! this is one of the best sales to attend especially if you are looking to get some christmas shopping done early...

that is all for now...later! ♥ teresa

cool , I really need to find some of this freezer paper stuff!


oh may I add, just for reference, in Australia standard printer paper size is A4, so you can cut to 21cm x 29 cm (in inches thats , 8.27x 11.69) though american letter size will still work, check printer page size settings :]

Thanks for the tip there ;) If anyone finds this stuff in Australia, let us know!

Thanks so much the tutorial, I would love to do this! But I don't think my printer can do that kind of magic stuff >_< I am so jealous of your printing capabilities Sewing Stars! lol

How did you come across this techinique? Just made it up or did you see it somewhere too? (Just curious!)

That's awesome of you to share. I use to use those cloth transfer sheets in the packets. So expensive though to use those and my ink wasn't waterproof. What a clever idea!
