    I have use this before - . . . I found that the quality of the fabric upon which you are printing leaves a great dealt o be desired - but I don't know of any other way to get this done. Be prepared to include the edges within a seam - if you fuse and/or embroider over the edge, it will try to ravel on you as the thread count is not very high. I fractured a flower (orchid) and used batik around it on this one-

    Make sure you heat set the photo after you copy onto your fabric.

    I use the fabric sheets sold at Hobby Lobby. I did one as a gift to my DD's MIL with all her and all her grandchildren. It turned out well and she loved it.

    You can either use Bubblejet 2000 fabric printing solution and Bubblejet rinse (can buy at Walmart) to prepare you own fabric or buy special fabric made for inkjet printing. If you choose to use Bubblejet solution, after your fabric dries iron an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of fabric to some freezer paper to print in you inkjet printer. Just follow the instructions with the solution. There are a couple of tutes available on Youtube. You can also buy transfer paper to iron on your fabric. Avery makes one that is pretty good. Good Luck and have fun.
