Incredibly nice of you to share!
I need to retweet this to my twitter.
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!)
Ooh, that's so neat! =) Thanks for sharing this tutorial, Teresa. It might come in handy for me some day...so I added it to my favorites. ♥
I don't know if I have the right inks to use this technique, but either way thanks so much for the tutorial! Man this can save people so much money on using that overpriced printing fabric :D You are da cool <3
I need to share this on my facebook.
thanks for the lovely tutorial...I always wanted to ask you how your stuff get printed to fabrics. Anyway I hope I'll get started on my own little projects like you. your works inspire me so much......
yay! Thanks for sharing. (Such cute sheep. :) )
Thanks for sharing your tutorial. I've added it to memories for future reference. :)
thanks for sharing! i've always wondered how to transfer my images onto fabric. you're a lifesaver!
now i just have to figure out what freezer paper is *rubs chin*
thanks, teresa, for the tutorial!! now i just need to get a new printer! =P
Wow! Thank you for this awesome tutorial! I can't wait to try it myself. :)
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!

Teresa, thanks so much for the tut. It's truly inspirational.
Brill - thanks for that - I never knew you needed an inkjet. : S
by freezer paper you mean some crafty product or an actual refrigirator paper (something like baking paper maybe?)?
what printer do you have?

Re: ooh this is great!
is found here in supermarkets in the sections with plastic sandwich bags and aluminum foil.
i have an epson 2200, but some of the new HP printers have water resistant inks now too.
I believe you can use butcher paper too. It's got a waxy surface on one side too.
What an excellent tutorial! Thanks for sharing!
Awesome! and I have to go to the supermarket today anyway...thanks for sharing this. Now I must get back to sewing and thinking about what I can print on fabric...yay!
hi! I somehow wandered to your LJ from someone else's LJ to 'The Sampler' to your store then back to LJ ... here! wooh. And I just wanted to say that you have/make/create/sell(ya, you get the point) absolutely wooonderful and beuuutiful stuff ... makes me jealous .... so back to the point, I just wanted to tell you that I friended you ... well not yet, but I will friend you after I push the 'Post Comment' button. XDD
Opps forgot, awesome tutorial too! :D
That's far more clever and cheaper than buying transfer paper! Now to see if my Epson has the proper ink as well!
It's clever and cheaper but there's another way to do it: there are adhesive A4 sheets (I've found them googling for cheap stuff online
) you can use to fix the fabric and they are not expensive at all.

Hi, such a good tutorial, I thought someone may have mentioned this but do not see it, there is a fabulous product called Bubble Jet Set, which I would imagine be much easier to get in America, you soak your material in it, print and rinse and it set all inks, on my bottle it says it is made by C JENKINS NECKTIE COMPANY, ST LOUIS, MO,63135, (314)521-7544-EMAILemail@example.com (i hope, the printing is tiny :-))anyway if you google it sure you would find suppliers, not sure of where to get it now in Australia, but there is some and freezer paper on ebay.com.au, have not seen freezer paper in supermarkets here, got mine from a mail order shop that has closed (sob), have fun everyone, and you have a lovely blog, cheers Suzanne
i've been wanting to print my own fabrics since forever! found your link via a few links' links; adding as a friend, hope you don't mind. :)

Hey! I'm a huge fan of printing on fabric also and you can buy this stuff called "bubble jet" (http://www.bryerpatch.com/faq/bjs.htm)....although I purchase mine from fabric depot in Portland. Anyway, this stuff makes the printed fabric machine washable also. But, if you have water resistant ink I guess you wouldn't need this stuff then? Are standard inks water resistant? Is this 20 questions? :) I sometimes have trouble getting the paper to feed appropriately too, I have to really iron the edges and make sure the paper is perfectly sized. agh. But fun though and a way cool technique, thanks for sharing :)
Hi there! One of my Randomposters linked me over here, an that's an awesome tutorial!
does this work only with small pieces of fabric?
I'm looking to make curtains with a pattern I made, it's sort of tie tye like pattern, and I'm redoing my room with colors matching my pattern and I would LOVE to make curtains with my pattern.
If not, can you direct me to a place where they might be able to do that?
I wonder if you received any ideas on how to print on larger pieces of fabric. I would love to know how to do this also
You're so helpful. And fabulous.
I know this is an old post but I was wondering how the fabrics fare after use?!
I found you on Pinterest. Wonderful Tutorial, Thank You! :)
