Transferring photographs onto fabric was something I'd wanted to try for ages. While I was in Wilkinson's today - lo and behold - their photo transfer paper was reduced to £2! So I thought I'd give it a go.

I chose some pictures and illustrations then decided on what sizes I wanted to try. I just wanted some small pictures to start with. There's a comprehensive instructions leaflet inside the paper pack.
Its just a case of printing, cutting out and ironing.
Unfortunately I didn't have any plain white fabric which would have shown these off much better!
Please remember that if you chose an image with writing, you will have to set your printer to mirror printing.
There are lots of uses apart from t-shirts -
Wouldn't it be lovely to use some old family photos and make a heritage quilt, mixing them with other fabrics?
Little cushions or lavender bags would be nice too.
Pictures of pets could be incorporated into a cushion.
Bunting made of baby photos to embarrass your kids on their 21st (no, that's just me being evil!)!!!
Personalised table napkins with names in fancy fonts.
I'm sure many of you lovely ladies will have used this technique already, and have thought up lots of lovely ideas of your own. I'd love to hear what you have created.
