Printed Pillows

I learned from someone in Blog World that you could print on Fabric right on your printer!!  I was in awe.  I tried it and it actually worked.

First you get a piece of printer paper and then cut a piece of fabric to match the size of paper.

Spray the paper with a bit of tacky spray and press the fabric down.

Pick your design in this case it is two designs from Graphics Fairy .   I set the graphic to print at 80% cause I didn't want it real dark or crisp.

I printed on the really cheap fabric from Hobby Lobby.  Ombusn... something or other. "ossenburg"   Thanks Judy for leaving me a comment and fixing my spelling!  Its  it was like 3 something a yard.  I know not very informative, I am not much for details. Run that fabric right through the printer and you are done!!

I sewed the printed piece on the front of pillows I had cut from another decorator fabric I had on hand.   After the pillows were stitched  together and stuffed I sat and watched TV and pulled out the threads to make fringe around the printed piece.

All Done.  I am SO Happy with the way they turned out.

  1. Do you mean "ossenburg" (I think that's how you spell it?) is a really nice but inexpensive material.


  2. Thank you Judy that is exactly what I meant!

  4. That was an easy to understand how to! I have been wondering how to do that. And I had never heard of that fabric until recently when I saw it used for pillows on an Etsy shop...your pillows came out really nice!

  5. Your pillow came out fantastic! I really like the graphic.

  6. How cool is that?! I had no idea you could print right on fabric. Thanks for the info! Your pillows are stunning:)
