How I Printed on Fabric

Some of you lovely people wanted to know how I printed on fabric, well I can only tell you the way I was told, so here goes.

First you need some plain cotton fabric, I used White dying cotton which was about £2 a mtr.

Some Freezer Paper.

I then cut out an A4 size piece of freezer paper and ironed it to the fabric so that it stuck firmly.
Then cut out exactly to the A4 size.

Place this in your printer so that it prints on the fabric side.

Find something that you want to print and do exactly as you would if you were printing on paper.

Be a bit careful here if it starts to go a bit wobbly take it out quickly.

My printer seems to do it ok. and it is and Epsom DX7450 just an ordinary printer. Good Luck!!
