Fabric Transfers


Using a pack of T-shirt transfer paper which I found in my stash by accident, I decided to play around to see what fabrics it could successfully be transferred to.  As you can see it worked pretty well on this previously dyed piece. I also used a piece of netting, a piece of napkin, felt cut into a heart shape and a piece of suede effect fabric.  I frayed some edges and wrapped everything in a piece of red tulle, added decorative stitching (especially to the corners) and some buttons.

****EDITED*****

Yes, you are quite right it is PINK, and yes, I am feeling ok, thanks for your concern!!!!  Watch this space for the other colours!!!!

LOL, I was going to comment on the pink - such a change from GREEN!!! Love it, though - lots of variety and texture here. The transfer worked really well - good for you. I actually prefer image transferring to fabric - much easier for some reason. Ever tried Sheer Heaven? It makes image transfer so easy it's incredible.

Lovely colour palette you've worked with here and gorgeous combo - no need to be tied to one colour all the time.
