You may remember the memory chest I made for my mother. It was done by printing out family photos on inkjet fabric.
For my next project, I photographed some of my 3-year-old's paintings....
...inserted the images into text boxes in a Word document, then played around with resizing them.
Then it was simply a matter of printing the document from the computer as if it were on paper - the fabric has a peel-away backing that keeps it stiff and smooth on its trip through the printer. That's ALL there is to it!! REALLY!
I appliquéd the LION drawing and made a denim pencil case (large style - to hold a ruler, calculator and notebook if necessary).
And I'm VERY HAPPY with this brooch I made. My wee girl is also very proud to see me wear it. (Not sure what this creature is - its name keeps changing, but it always "has a sun on its tummy").
