Making material using your PC
I know I need to handle this carefully, as I don't want to upset Spike, even though I do pay to be here (LOL)--
Today on a TV show, there was a lady who showed how she puts everyday items on her scanner, drapes over them pretty material, makes a scan, and proceeds to make her own material to make a quilt.
Now, printing a pic onto fabric is nothing new, but her technique makes the material very soft, and suitable for quilt piecing. I wish I would have taped the show, but will be on the lookout for it to air again.
In the meantime, I thought you might enjoy reading about it. Even if you aren't into quilts, other applications are endless.
She had a very long banner made out of an old photo of her dad, as decorations for his 90th birthday.
I am posting to several groups, so don't be disappointed if the link doesn't work right away.
I am in NO way affiliated with this lady or her site----just wanted to share.
Here is a link that might be useful: Making soft material from your printer
