A family members request fulfilled


Youtube taught me how to print pictures with my laser printer. So easy. The fabric for printing one can purchase is always intended for a inkjet printer. Now I can also produce my own labels. Opened up a whole new field of ideas.

Did you printed it on fabric ? What kind of fabric ? Do you need a special printer then ?

Used cotton fabric, ironed on freezer paper, cut it into 8x11 sheets and printed with my laser printer. After that heat set with iron. I found a Youtube video about this process. Most of them are intended for inkjet printers.

You are a BOSS! What a great quilt. I'm sure you have made someone very happy. I used to do picture quilts and used lots of awful chemicals and such. I'm glad to see that the process has evolved.

This is wonderful! Also, beautiful Angie! It makes me want to cry because it's filled with so many memorable pictures. It will be treasured, for sure....I'm afraid my printer would make a mess. I can't even print readable paper copies.

Oh oh. Am I in trouble? Actually friends of mine had done this with their inkjet and the purchased material for that purpose They said the material felt stiff. Not with this method.

That looks great, so you use the fabric for Incjetprinters for your Laserprinter?? Did you already wash that Quilt?? I wonder if the Pictures get lighter after washing.But you did a super job, i like it very much.

Oh no Gabi. That fabric for inkjets would have caused a whole mess, since laser printers use heat. I used plain white cotton material, ironed on freezer paper, cut it into page size and printed it feeding it manually through the printer. After that it needed to be heat set. Before I started this project I tester fabric by washing it and it was fine.

Thanks for posting the tutorial! Seems fairly easy.

toogie by toogie 12 Jun 2019

And explain how you set with heat. I know an iron, but.....

crafter2243 by crafter2243 12 Jun 2019

I ironed with the highest setting on both sides after having removed the freezer paper.

laurasomi by laurasomi 14 Jun 2019

Thank you sew much Angie for explaining it to my ol brain lol, i really appreciate it and it looks sew beautyful.
Hugs,
