Step 1: Put cardboard under the fabric. I used similar one to the pillowcase to show the method.

Put the print on the fabric, use scotch to stick it, but it can not cover the part with the graphic, just blank paper part.

    I see Car plan is a UK product. What would we use in the States?

    great project, if i wanted to make quite a few of these , and ikea pillow case would make it too costly. could i use any type of pillowcase or does it need to be heavier type? closer weave? will this work on any type of material is the basic question thank you so much

      The IKEA pillow case is 100% cotton, so I imagine any other brand that is the same would be fine. Or, you could buy 100% cotton fabric and make your own to the size you need. I may try this on cotton dish towels!
