Mother's Day Gift

To celebrate Mothers Day I decided to take

some of my artwork and create a collage  to make a computer print on fabric. This was quite the project and I quickly learned for my skill level that using fabric on freezer paper was not the way for me to go.  I found a website that gave step by step instruction.  However, I must have been doing something wrong as it jammed my printer several times. 
Needless to say I decided to search Amazon for computer fabric paper and found it and at a very good price.   Once the paper arrived I quickly read the instructions and put the paper into the computer and BINGO! it beautifully printed out the collage and so repeated the process and once again another great print on fabric. 
The Mothers Day and Valentine pillow's turned out quite nice, Now for the finishing touch I added a crocheted edging and like most things I do created it with no pattern all from the heart and hands. 
Hope you will give the computer fabric printing process a try as it is a very wonderful way to make gifts from the heart and create memories.
I just had a thought maybe a person could create a fabric card too. 

Have fun creating and keep those hooks flying.
God Bless America

Those are wonderful and a nice gift idea. I love using the fabric paper and it is fun with all of the free vintage designs.
