A friend is moving out of state and to remind her of what she's leaving behind, I created a vintage style pillow based on a Colorado souvenir postcard, using freezer paper and my inkjet printer.

Follow me as I show you how to create a one-of-a-kind going away gift.

Step 1: Gather Materials

Printing on Fabric requires:
  • An Image
  • Freezer Paper (not waxed paper)
  • Ruler
  • 1/2 yard White Cotton Fabric - I used fabric from a white sheet
  • Access to an Inkjet Printer
  • Basic Sewing Skills and supplies
Because I wanted to center my printed image onto of a larger piece of fabric, I also used a bandana in this instructible
I love printing on fabric. It is the main reason I use my printer. I usually make personalized zipper bags! So much fun! Great Ible and it turned out great! Makes me want to make one of my state (Mass) & my cousin's state (FL) on one bag or pillow as a gift for her!
What a darling idea! I love the way it turned out!

This site has a range of interesting ink jet media: <br>http://www.craftycomputerpaper.co.uk/category/Print-On-Fabrics <br> <br>I have used some of them to good effect. <br>
Good to know. I'll have to keep that in mind when I want to purchase the media for higher quality fabrics. Thanks.
