I have finally figured out how to print onto fabric. My mom lives many miles away from me, and so she hasn't been able to see my kids as they grow up. So, I've made some simple quilts for my kids so I thought it would be perfect to print out some of their artwork, and put together a quilt for her for Christmas. I thought, if I'm going to endeavor into a project like this, I'd better start now! So, here is a picture of the art work I have printed out so far onto fabric. I am trying a vinegar bath and heat to set the ink. I found that tutorial here:
And, here's where I am at to date:
I got all the pieces I'm going to use to make this and printed and hopefully heat set well enough. This is how I decided to piece them together.
And I sewed the quilt top. I haven't measured it yet, but it's about lap quilt size, which is perfect because my mom is in a wheelchair now.
