In an earlier post I said I would share some info on fabric paper. Here it is at it's most basic.
A copy of a photo, and some white fabric.
Some PVA glue mixed with a minimum of water, and a plastic tray.
Cover the fabric in glue.
Lay the paper on top and also cover in glue.
Now there are a few points to remember. The ink will run (this is a print from an ink jet printer), but you can keep it to a minimum by not too much water in your glue and not over brushing. You will have a few wrinkles and a bit of blurring but I am happy with that.
A simple fast way to get an image onto a piece.
This is what I did with mine.
I put it onto some wadding, added a few strips, and then added stitch.
Now I have a great "random zig zag" stitch on my sewing machine that I like to edge things with sometimes. Like me, you probably end up with something like this when you zig zag an edge.
After trimming this is what I do.
I add a touch of paint (or sometimes glue or acrylic gel medium) all along the edge, to neaten everything up.
It works a treat!
If you want to learn more about the delights of fabric paper I can highly recommend this book.
