how to transfer an image transferred on fabric:
Get a copy of your desired image. (It is important to have a photo-copy of the image OR print it with a laser printer. Ink-jet printed images will not work well.)
Use a cutter knife and carefully cut out your image. You do your best to cut out the excess white around the edges, otherwise it is transferred to the fabric.
Protect your work surface with wax paper. Also, place a sheet of wax paper and inner the cushion cover so that the back of the pillow cover is protected.
brush a thick layer of transfer medium, using the ink to the image and lay the paper glue-side down on the fabric where you want it.
Smooth out any bubbles in the adhesive with a squeegee and clean the Mediterranean, which extends over the paper. Let the glue and paper to dry for 24 hours.
is The last step of your Mod smorgasbord of photo transfer on fabric, to remove the paper. With a damp cloth, moisten the paper. To reveal after about a minute, use a damp sponge or cloth and RUB the paper in a circular motion, the image, below. The key is not to do the work of tearing slowly and carefully, so that you, or RUB the image.
If all rubbed off the paper, you can use a pillow form into your cover and enjoy your newly designed pillow! The fabric cover can cold dry washed and hung up.
The little dress on the pillow is a cute addition to our baby girls room. We plan to use the pillows as decor and pull them out of the crib when she sleeps there. I love how the dress image coordinates with the other pillows we have in her room.
