I thought I'd try a digital transfer on some of my hand dyed fabric.
I printed the image from my computer onto the Transfer Artist Paper with my printer. That went swell, except I forgot it prints reverse image. Not too much of a problem as the fabric was darker than the little bit of lettering.
I ironed it on and should not have stopped to take a photo as the colour is lighter after I continued removing the paper backing! ;^)
Then I thought to stencil a bird on the fabric. The stamp was great on the paper but a little bit indistinct on the fabric. I needed a bit of a coarser stamp with deeper grooves, I'm thinking.
It gets a bit softer with a wash but I was anxious to try stitching on it.
Nina no like! :( And when Nina isn't happy I tend to get a little crabby myself! ;)
Now it is possible that part of the problem is the tight weave on my base cloth. I'm thinking I may have to find another fabric much as I like the price and the feel. I may also need to experiment with some different needles.
So I have sat down to think about what to do next. And while I am thinking I shall probably begin to baste the first of two quilts that need quilting asap!
Please feel free to add some "what if's... ".
