    Thank you, thank you for the link. I have purchased the printable fabric sheets in the past and I agree they are spendy. I have used them for making quilt labels and have found them difficult to hand stitch down possibly because of the fine thread count. Not sure, but the fabric is sure hard to needle.

    I have made my own printer fabric sheets, I used a product called "Bubble Jet Set". They worked very well. I ironed the fabric onto freezer paper sheets that are available in 8.5x11 size.

    You really do not need all that stuff. all yoiu do need is some soda ash or washing soda. put half a cup of it into two pints of hot water and saok the fabric in the solution for a few minutes take care not to get any onto your eyes and sensitive hands should wear rubber gloves . squeeze out the excesse solution and then hang to drip dry the fabric iron it flat and then iron onto freezer/ butchers paper make sure there are no loose threads to catch the rollers
    this is a great method to use if you are creating minnie landscape pictures as you can do a sheet of grass and one of sky and mountains and water and such then paper piece to produce a wonderfull mural.

    Has anybody done this? Would be interested in hearing what your results were.

    I have tried this and YES it does work, actually just as good as the Bubble Jet liquid and the printer sheets. My favorite has been TAP paper for printing on anything, but this solution is fantastic! Thanks for the reminder.
