Sometimes I can not find the printable fabric sheets you buy at JoAnn's and I do not always want the plain fabric. Sometimes I want polka dots in the back ground. You can purchase Steam-A-Seam 2 Lite at JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby or your local quilt store.
The sheets are 9 x 12 so I cut my fabric a little bigger so I do not get the goo on the ironing board cover. The Steam-A-Seam 2 Lite has a 2 papers on it a front and a back. You peel off the back and iron it on the wrong side of the fabric.
Then I turn it over and iron the front side just to make sure there are no wrinkles. I also want to make sure it is stuck really good. (no OCD here) lol.
Then I square it up to 8 1/2 x 11 so that it will fit in the printer.
This is how it will look. After I square it up I do re iron it again to make sure all the edges are all good and stuck.
On my computer to print I double click on the image I want
pick the size of the picture you want to print
This is how it will come out. For this I go into windows and type what I want and save it to my desk top. I make this to iron on my tags for my store.
This is a super cute image I got over at http://www.freeprettythingsforyou.com/ I will iron this on another piece of fabric and just sew along the edges. I want to make a bag for a friends little girl and put Valentine's candy in it and maybe a doll or two. I will have to show you when it is all done. The back ground of this fabric is yellow with tiny white polka dots.
To set the image I put another piece of fabric on top of the image and iron it. The heat from the iron will set the image.
Hope everyone is having a GREAT weekend.
