How to Transfer on Fabric in Less Than 5 Minutes


I've been receiving questions about transfer into fabric since I posted my romantic pillow or lavender sachets and I thought that a picture is worth a thousand words, so I decided to make a little tutorial to show you how to do it, and maybe you decide to give it a try!

First a little explanation of the process.
1. We need acrylic spray varnish

2. Print the design you want mirrored, this is very important because if not it will be upside down. You need a laser printer, or you can take the file to a copy shop to print it for you.

3. Spray the design with varnish, at a distance of about 20 cm. This is to not saturate the paper but to have enough varnish for the ink to "get up"

4. You will know that you've done it right when you turn over the sheet and you are able to see the image.

5. Press with the back of a spoon to help ink transfer well. Here Miss A was helping me

Now I recommend you to iron the fabric as the heat helps to fix the ink.

    Is this washable? Also does it make the fabric stiff or feel odd?

    Do you use a laser printer or an ink jet? Does it matter?

      It says specifically to use a laser printer. Maybe Kathleen above had similar results using a home ink-jet printer. By the way, many brands produce affordable laser printers for home use.
