how to print directly on to fabric




to print directly onto fabric i used iron on interfacing to stiffen the fabric to immitate paper, some cotton fabric and an inkject priner.

you need to cut the fabric and interfacing the same size as a piece of printer paper. then iron the fabric on to to interfacing so it is stuck togther (enough to peel off after), then your ready to go. load the fabric in to the printer and print.

 i tested it with this free printable i found online as i wasnt sure if it would work, then after it printer i pulled the interfacing back off again.


 here is the love eye chart printable for you to use if you want it.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this--would save money in transfer paper. Do you think it would be washable? I think I will try it and then put it through the wash. I would if it would print a photo? So much to test!:)
