New Craft is here ; )
Ok so I really can't take credit for this craft...I got the idea from another website, Ok so anyway you take freezer paper (I could only find a 150 FOOT!!!! roll I will be doing this FOREVER!!!!) but any way I digress you can print a picture (when printing, the paper is so thin that you really should tape the top and sides to a piece of printer paper don't make my mistake and jam your printer for 15 min. while you try to dig it out of the printer) or you can draw a picture on the paper side of the freezer paper. Then using an x-acto knife cut your design out...I used a butterfly picture and cut out the little butterfly's but it works with anything design (as long as you don't sell the item you can use free downloads of Dingbat Fonts which is what I am going to be doing) ok sorry...You take the freezer paper that you have cut your design out of and place it on a T-shirt or a bag or anything really that is material or canvas... Using an iron set to cotton, iron on the freezer paper wax side down it will stick instantly...Then you take fabric paint and paint over your image, but make sure to put a piece of cardboard inside so the paint doesn't bleed through now you don't have to be careful just kinda slop it on and then let it dry...now the only hint I have for you is to put on a thin coat of the paint, and then if you are impatient like me you can use a heat gun to dry it faster... Iron your image from the inside to set it making sure to use a piece of cardboard to keep it from bleeding through. Than enjoy your new piece of art... I will be posting pics. later so check back to see. If you have any questions leave a comment and I will get back to you. Have a great day of crafting.
