I've made some fabric tags today; well they're not quite complete and they're not really tag-shaped! Thought I'd tell you how to do them and indeed how to print other stuff onto fabric. I coloured some calico with Koh-I-Noor waterbased dyes which are in a little palette like watercolour paints. I got mine from Art Van Go. I wet the fabric first then just 'painted' the dyes on. When the fabric was dry I trimmed it so there were no loose threads then ironed it onto a piece of freezer paper; cut the freezer paper a little bit larger than the fabric. The freezer paper enables it to be put through your printer - simples :-) You need to iron the fabric onto the shiny side of the paper. You'd think you'd be able to buy freezer paper in the supermarket!! but I've never seen any; if anybody knows of any supermarkets/food stores where it can be purchased, please let me know as I'm sure it would be cheaper than buying it from textile craft suppliers! I believe you can buy it in supermarkets in the USA. I'm going to glue the 'tags' onto tissue paper to stiffen them. I printed some quotes onto the tags. Now if you see the one attributed to Einstein you may think 'that's just not cricket'! but I think he was being jocular :-)
I've also received my saltdough dolly from the wonderfully talented Donna of Doings of Doone. Her name is Phillipa, isn't she fabulous? I love her ;-) This was for playing along with Pay It Forward If you want to see how Donna makes these dolls check out the videos on her blog.
