Made cuchions for my sister and brother. And placemat to my very old father 94 years old. I printed on my homeprinter on fabric. Used writing recepies, written by my mother and father. My mother passed away more than 20 years ago. Some photos of mother and father when they were Young and a photo of my brother as a child. The painting of the baby, was made by our mother allways thought that it was our brother , but don´t know, no one left to ask. Dad don´t remember. In USA you can buy spray for fabric so you can wash them after printing, but theyt don´t sell outside USA, That is a pity. I have used a spray but it is not waterproof. ont the placemat for my father I have used a plasticgel, so he can wipe it of with a wet towel. The back of the placemat I made with some curves. Using the tecnic on this website. Please roll down for instructions. It is easy sewing curves

What an amazing keepsake! I know how time consuming printing on fabric can be, but your results are certainly worth all your efforts! Well done!

I especially love the placemat idea. Pictures help to bring back the memories. I hope you will not mind if I use your idea.

AWESOME!!! I love the placemat idea, such a nice way to start each day...remembering your family. You did a fantastic job on the pillows as well. What a lucky family you have, they are going to love them.

Just lovely, I bet your father will treasure his.

These are excellent! What a beautiful memory keepsake. My favorite are the top two but your idea of a placemat is genius! Your dad can have coffee every morning and eats his meals everyday with his lovely bride. Five star ⭐️ Job!

Wow I love you technique I am sure the will be treasured for a long time .. i have never printed on fabric using inks it scares me a bit . Must look up some tutorials before some of my treasures cant be used as they are getting fragile.
