Can’t say I’ve ever heard of Freezer paper before but it sounds like something I need to source and try I.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your lovely message. Today is going to be hard but a very rewarding one.

Happy Crafting!

I am also ignorant about freezer paper, though I have seen people mention it on blogs. Have fun!

Sian

I would love to give this a try - although our printer wouldn't even let me put a bit of card through it yesterday, so I might need to take a deep breath before I begin! It's definitely a summer holiday plan though, thank you.

Jacky S

I'd love to try this....but as my printer is one that feeds from the bottom [I'd never buy this type again]......I'm sort of thinking it won't let me!!

Hels Sheridan

ooh very clever...never tried printing onto fabric... errrrm... I might just give it a go... but I am a bit of a ninkompoop when it comes to all things computery lol I have a little giveaway on my desk this week ;o))

Well that's fab, I love the look. I'm sure I've got some plain white cotton fabric somewhere, and if not the kids won't miss the odd piece of A4 out of their bedclothes....looking forward to seeing the results of using the magic liquid.

I've never tried freezer paper but tend to use bond a web ironed on the back of the fabric...works pretty well :-)

And it looks amazing :) I've often forgotten I bought stuff - this post has reminded me I have several packs of 'printable materials' lurking somewhere, including cotton fabric, magnet, suede-effect stuff.... Must hunt it out and try actually using it!! And when it's all gone, I'll still be able to print onto fabric because of this fabby post, thank you :)

This is SO COOL! Thank you for sharing it here. And, thank you for visiting my blog. It is so very nice to meet you. I have to tell you, your comment on my getting my gumption back post was my very favorite. I loved it and so did my family. Thank you!

Okienurse

Awesome! Thanks for telling us how to do it. I would imagine you could print just about anything on the clothe and cut to fit your project. I'm thinking baby pics etc. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #107

Oh my gosh! Aren't you adventurous! It looks amazing!

Thanks for this, Alexa. Great instructions. For those in UK you can buy Freezer Paper in Hobbycraft. It's not cheap, about £10 a roll, but I guess it lasts if you use it carefully. It's like greaseproof paper but with the ability to stick once ironed.
I have tried printing onto fabric, just as you described, Alexa. It worked well but it washed out when I experimented. I'd be interested to know what you plan to use to 'fix' it.
I haven't done this in a while, so thank you for the reminder. I may just play tomorrow! Great post by the way!!

Great post Alexa! I have done this before and it worked really well. It did wash out though when I experimented so I am interested to know what you will use to 'fix' the ink. Your instructions were very clear, and thanks for the reminder. I've not printed onto fabric for a while so I might just have a go tomorrow. Look forward to Friday's follow up.

Wow, that's amazing! I've never heard of printing on fabric(with a desk top printer anyway). Very cool! Thanks for sharing! :-)

Susanne

Wow, that looks easy enough for even me to try. Thanks!

hmm, did that comment work?

doone

Aha - reverse chronological it's at the top not the bottom!

- Hun when I previewed the comment there is word verification on, and the box is inaccessible so the comment gets lost, there is no word verification if you just click post...

Alexa

Hello and delighted to see you! :) I'll see if I can sort out the commenting bit - thank-you for alerting me to a possible problem.

Alexa

That's cool tip, thank-you!

Alexa

Hi Jacky - my printer tray is at the bottom and feeds upwards, and it took the fabric/paper just fine, so you might find it is not a problem. it's thinner than Bazzill!

Kathleen

Thank you for showing this technique I'll have to give it a try. Do you fix the colours after printing? I buy my freezer paper from patchwork quilting shops, bought a whole pack of it 10 years ago and still loads left, maybe that says I don't use it enough lol.

Marcie

This is so intriguing to me. I've never seen or heard of this before..but am inspired to give it a try!

Angelfish

Thanks for the step by step Alexa:) I was inspired after seeing your bespoke fabrics last week. As Sian says a great summer holiday project!

Amanda

Can't wait til Friday to see if the magic potion worked :)

Mary Anne

Still loving this - I would buy it to make a bag with. Such pretty cool colours. I really must find that canvas I have someplace and print it. Good thing I still have an enourmous roll of freezer paper. Now if I can just find WAXED paper in the UK that doesn't cost the earth, I'm golden :)
