How to print on fabric, or, big dog on little pillow
Every day when I sit on my couch I look at the chair standing opposite, and every day I think that there is
I wanted a little pillow with a photo on it, but nobody here sells fabric you can officially print on. So today I
decided to just print on any old fabric and see what happens.
It worked like a charm (although it will probably disappear when I wash it).
Here in more detail how to do it:
I first took a picture of one of my dogs, cut out the head in photoshop and put the head onto a blank document.
I then added some flowers that I cut out from yesterdays wreath pictures:
I cut a piece of thin cotton the same size as an A4 paper, glued the fabric on the paper, and fed it into the printer:
I then took the paper off again and sewed the fabric onto a plain white pillow case with thick embroidery yarn:
And here it is now on the 'empty' chair:
Have a fun day!
Lots of love,
