Wall Art with PhotoFabric


Hi, it’s Kirsten with another photo fabric project for you from Fab.Embroidery. com. Today I’ve used photo fabric to create a custom wall decoration Based on a family portrait Now in the past I’ve done this kind of thing before and I’ve used iron-on transfer paper to get my photos to the fabric. I found that that has some limitations: It’s a little fiddly with the iron on transfer paper. You need to buy the paper and print it on your own printer, and then it’s specific as to how you can launder it. I don’t think you can dry clean it and Getting it too hot again will mess up your picture. I’ve also used a special kind of fabric that you can feed directly into your printer so you don’t need to iron it on and That worked all right, but it also had some limitations: I needed to make sure that it never got wet because when I got it wet, I got a splotch on my photo fabric So I found a new way and this involves Fab.Embroidery.com and I really like it. I think you will too. Basically, all I need to do is be at my computer. If I have a photograph on my computer, I can simply upload it to Fab.Embroidery.com and I can load more than one and place them all on the same fabric and have that printed. And whatever I print will be there in my mailbox in two weeks ready to work with. It also comes with its own laundry and care instructions. I’ve used a basic combed cotton for these projects that I’m showing you today and you can wash them. In fact, it recommends that you wash prior to use, like you would for anything you’re sewing and you just use a delicate cycle: cool or warm water. And you can use the dryer on it, and you can even iron it In fact, I press this one quite a bit and had some splotches from my spray bottle, so I had this big blob of water, and ironed out beautifully. I didn’t have any trace that that mistake had occurred. So I’ve really enjoyed working this with this photo fabric from Fab.Embroidery.com. it really came out really well. I used the Features In Fabric board to finish out my project. I have more information and instructions on that on my blog at Embroidery.com. Just look for the photo fabric blog. And I also encourage you to make sure your notifications are turned on so that you know when a new video is online. Thank you for watching. I’ll see you next time on Fab.Embroidery.com.
