Printing Images on Fabric Free of Cost!!!

This instructable will show you how to print any picture onto fabric using household items.

Materials required:
1. A picture that you wish to print on the cloth
2. Printer - color or B&W depending on picture
3. Fabric
4. An iron box - preferably with adjustable heat

(In this pic the print is barely visible because i tried to do it very fast. Take your time while doing this to get the best results.)

Step 1: Preparing the Picture

First select the picture of you choice on the computer (Pisture 1). Using any imaging software(i used photoshop), scale the picture to your preferred size and then flip it horizontally to get a mirror image (Picture 2). Then print this mirror image onto a normal paper(not photo paper or any other kind).

Step 2: Printing!!

now place this paper (face down) on your fabric and iron it onto the fabric with iron box on high heat.
Do it continuously for about 3-4 minutes. Then peel the paper off (the paper might feel glued to the fabric but its because of the ink) slowly by holding it in front of an air conditioner and you are finished!!

I tried cleaning the fabric with soap but the picture doesn't wash out. So i guess that it'll last for a long time.

Happy printing!!!!

    This only works with a laser printer and it doesn't work with all fabric.
