    Well, we didn't use anything special other than not using any additives, not using the best quality printing, and the re-ironing afterwards. So far we haven't had any problems.

    Remember this is with an ink jet printer only, though.

    What a wonderful idea. You could make several on one sheet of 8.5 x 11 sheets.

    Thank you! I'm saving your instructions.

    This is the method I use for my labels also. In working with a friend we now have 7 labels on 7 quilts. They have been attached and then quilted over.
    Now, I discover a misspelling. The small "h" should have been a "n". Do you know any method to remove a part of a letter? I tried a toothpick with bleach then ammonia. My letters were heat set. Now, what?
    HP ink does not seem to wash out. I printed on scraps and ran through washer before I began to use this process routinely. My stays very well without bubble jet and just using any cotton fabric I have.
