Fabric Sweet Heart

It worked!  And amazingly easy, I must say.  In my last post, I mentioned that I had tracked down some freezer paper to try printing on fabric.  I ironed heavy linen to the shiny side of the freezer paper and ran the fabric/freezer paper through my printer.  Then I just peeled the freezer paper off.  It seems the freezer paper makes the fabric just sturdy enough to go through the printer.

I used the same image I used in my previous post.  She is one of the collaged hearts from Iralamija's shop.  I thought she'd make a cute hanging pin cushion.  I also think she can stay out year round - what do you think?  I made a flower from the linen and I added a trio of Maya Road heart pins. 


I'm certainly going to do some more printing on fabric.  I'm just so surprised that it worked as well as it did!
