How I Print On Fabric - Repost from OneCheapBitch.blogspot

A lot of you have asked how I print on fabric.  I am by no means the genius behind this concept and I have seen the "how to" in blogland (on The Shabby Chic Cottage blog for one), but here is my tutorial on how to do it.

Here's what you will need:
One piece of cardstock, your fabric cut to the size of the cardstock and a can of spray adhesive.

Spray your cardstock with the spray adhesive:
Quickly attach your fabric - spreading out any bumps:
Cut any extra or loose ends so the fabric is perfectly matched with the paper and so it will fit into your printer.  Put into your printer tray with the fabric facedown (this only works with inkjet printers):
Choose your photo:
Press print and depending upon your computer, this window should pop up - press next and next again:
You should get this window next - choose the size you want and hit next:
The paper should feed through the printer like this:
And come out like this:
Peel the cardstock from your image and voila! - you are ready to roll!

Go ahead - give it a whirl and let me know how you make out!
