    colourfast printer fabric sheets

    Hello everyone...........has anyone tried these printer fabric sheets. They are by June Taylor and come in a package of 3. I tried to zoom in on the package to get a better look but I still couldn't tell what these sheets look like. Is it a plain 81/2 by 11 sheet or are there graphics on them. I tried to make my own using my Epson Stylus CX4800 but the paper got stuck no matter what I did........I'm getting mad at myself for not being able to do this...........

    I don't see a picture but I have used the June Taylor "Fabric Sheets For Ink Jet Printers". There are no graphics on the sheets. They are 8 1/2 x 11" white fabric sheets with a paper backing. It says sew-in colorfast. I used these in one of my first quilts that I made for my DH for his 1934 Ford hotrod. I was able to scan and then print a picture of his car which I used on the quilt. It was pretty easy to do following the instructions on the package. What is that you are working on?

    I too have used the June Taylor printer sheets for fabric. If you follow the directions on the back of the package it is super simple. I have included photos and my quilt label as well as just plain text. I used to machine and brighter all of my quilt labels. Now I type them up on the computer and print them on the printer and stitch them onto my quilts super fast and super simple.

    Hello suern3..............making charity quilts. I want to print out a page of small labels and cut them out as I need them. They are so expensive I am afraid of wasting. No photos, just text that shows my e-mail address encase some one has a question.

    you should have no trouble, be sure to leave space between the labels so you can have some to turn under

    From what I have read here on this site, the color of a photo easy washes out.
    A Good Friend, like an old quilt, is both a Treasure and a Comfort

    My friend does this for our guild charity quilts. Then I cut them apart with my pinking shears. We have no idea how they hold up after washing but that is not really our worry. We just iron them onto the backs of the quilts.
