monogram

I am now obsessed with the fact that I can print on fabric (even with my less than great printer).  I found this site, The Wedding Chicks (via Pinterest) where you can print any antique monogram letter in your choice of color for free.  So, I used the same directions that I had followed here to print on that $3.99/yard IKEA fabric that I had for the previous pillow project.  Actually, I left the fabric attached to the freezer paper, since this made it easier to frame.  I put it in a frame that is semi-shadow box.  The picture sits about 1/2 an inch behind the glass.  I love the result.


What do you think?

  3. I love monograms and typography so this is intriguing to me. I may have to go check out that site. Yours looks so pretty. Looks like you bought it and paid alot for it!

  4. It's lovely! I really want to try the print on fabric thing but I'm sort of nervous I'll break out printer! Ha! Is it printed in brown or red? I love it!

  5. I printed it in chocolate brown. And yes - I do worry a little about the printer, but so far I have printed on fabric 8 times and not so much as a paper jam. This from a printer that regularly jams with paper when it chooses to communicate with the computer, etc. etc. (Maybe I'm secretly hoping to break it....)
