Some time ago there was a post explaining how to print on fabric with freezer paper. Can someone please describe this technique again for me.

Thanks heaps.
Alice.

Alice, you can buy t-shirt transfer paper for printers (mine is the Canon brand) here in Aus. I got mine from my local newsagent but I think that Officeworks will have it too (think I saw it at either Kmart or Target too). There are two types: one for dark fabrics and one for light fabrics. Even though they're called "t-shirt" transfer paper you can use wovens etc. You print your designs/images, cut them out then iron onto the fabric. Good fun :) xXx

Alice I found the link below to be most helpful.

But I believe it was eggyannie who posted the original info on this.

This is exactly what I do and it works just great...inexpensive and quick and I always have the components on hand when I need them...I always heat set the ink with an iron after the printing has set and dry...

thank you so much everyone. It won't do what I wanted it to do I thought that there was some way of printing onto something then ironing the print on to transfer it. never mind, I do appreciate all of the help.

You can buy 'transfer paper' which you print on and then iron it onto fabric. I have used it a couple of times on t-shirts.

just remember to print any words in 'mirror' so they come out the right way on the fabric.

Alice, the stuff I bought is called bubble jet set 2000, you soak your fabric in this stuff, rinse lightly and dry/iron then you use the freezer paper to guide your fabric through your bubble jet printer, however I just found a do it yourself recipe for the solution on this site

Hi Alice, Eggyannie posted about this almost a year ago, I found these by using the search here on cute. I saved them, but could not find them in my files....must have lost them:>)

Alice, I have the special solution and the freezer paper for the technique you have requested, I bought the stuff from a craft show several years ago, but have not used it yet. I will pull out the instructions and post them for you later today if that is ok, as I have to pull all the bits out of the sewing mire, that is my sewing room,lol Ruth
