I was slow to jump on the citrasolv bandwagon to make fabric transfers. I've printed on fabric through my printer, and used heat transfers. I've wanted to try this method, but it was impossible to find locally. I found some at Amazon, and when my order (well, half of it) arrived from Amazon, I couldn't wait to try it. I had a bunch of photocopies I made at the local Staples. I followed the directions I found online, and zilch...nothing happened! Was I doing it right? Was my fabric prepared correctly? I went back online and everyone said how easy it was, done in 5 minutes...
Today I'll experiment a little. I still have to heat set the image and wash it, and see how it holds up. Then I'll crochet edges...maybe tea dye the towels... I've got some canvas totes that need decoration... oh, the artist canvas, I wonder how that would look sewn into a pillow with a great graphic on the front... I have some stretched canvas'... ...a tee shirt for the little one... I just love a new craft project that stirs up the imagination!! Have a beautiful day!
