I know you're all just dying to know what I did with my day off. But first I have a note about dying. I originally typed in dieing but got the little red squiggly line under the word. I had to go in search of what the correct spelling was. Dieing is when you are cutting something with a die. When referring to death the correct spelling is dying. I've been spelling it wrong for years.
OK enough about that. So yesterday I decided to try something that I've been dying (had to use it again) to try. I read about printing on fabric and thought it sounded interesting.
You start by ironing Heat n Bond (iron on adhesive) to the back of the fabric you want to print on. Then you choose a picture on your computer and print. The paper backing on the Heat n Bond makes the fabric stiff enough to run through the printer without a problem.
My first attempt I used a picture that I edited and lowered the opacity, then added the words.
Attempt two I went in to the computer and found some scrapbook elements that I had downloaded ages ago from a blog called Cen's loft. She's no longer blogging but she used to give away a lot of free scrapbooking stuff.
I used a Micron pen to go around a few things to define them a bit more. Again I used a blanket stitch to attach it to a background fabric. I need some practice on the blanket stitch. This is actually the first time I've used it.
This was fun and I can see doing more of it.
