you are loved



It works!  You really can print on fabric with a regular printer.  You just need to iron a piece of fabric to a piece of freezer paper.  There are lots of tutorials for doing it.  I used this one: Instructables - Inkjet Printing on Fabric .


I used clipart from KPM Doodles and added the words.   My January Giveaway is digital clipart (two sets of your choice) from KPM Doodles.  I will also send the winner the two pieces of fabric printed and ready to make this tiny little pillow (not sewn or stuffed).

First of all, here is the document if you want to print one for yourself.
You are Loved printable.  (The page view will be portrait, my example was landscape).
This printable is only for personal use.  If you want to share it, please link to this post.

The fabric I printed on was $3.99 /yard at IKEA.
Since this is purely a decorative pillow, I did not take any extra steps to make the dye set.  THIS PILLOW IS NOT INTENDED TO BE WASHED.



Here are two chances for you to enter this giveaway:

(1) Follow this blog (my-heart-lives-here-blogspot.com) and leave a comment on this post.

(2) In addition to following my blog, go to KPM Doodles, choose your two favorite clipart designs, and write a comment here telling us which are your favorites.

I will use a random number generator to choose a winner from the comment entries on January 23, 2012.  Please be sure to include your email address in the form when you comment so that I can contact the winner.

Good Luck!.

  1. Very sweet! Great graphic - I really like scribble-looking stuff. I love printing on fabric - though last week a small spring came out hanging off one of my fabric sheets - oops! Printer still seems to be working, though!
