Printing on muslin

Jody asks:
I fused wonder under to muslin and ran it through my inkjet, copying the images I had placed on the copy machine. It worked great! Is there any reason not to do this? Do you know if the fabric would then be washable...would the image remain?

You have to use treated fabric if you want the image to be stable, otherwise it will wash out. You can buy a few different types of products and/or prepared fabric to do this. Bubble Jet Set is one pre-treatment you can find at quilt stores, you use it on your own fabric. There’s lots of pretreated fabric around – you can buy it the package at most craft shops. Have fun!
