It’s OK to be Jealous…

I’m experimenting with printing onto fabric using an inkjet printer. Laserjet doesn’t work because the ink just sits on top of the fabric and you can rub it off. This is my first try and I’m very happy with the picture quality EXCEPT it’s not waterproof, which for some reason I didn’t think of, a huge bummer. It got some raindrops on it when I was sewing outside and the ink ran! Now I’m not sure what to do with it as a final project. I could frame it? I wanted it to be a sexy Elvis pillow, but I think that a sexy Elvis pillow needs to be able to handle moisture…

PS you can print waterproof using a bubblejet/inkjet printer but you have to pre-treat the fabric before your print it and it’s too late for this Teddy Bear Elvis. I have to go buy the stupid stuff and try again.

    I love your site and you’re very funny. I just had to comment on this post. I laughed out loud at my office and got a few funny looks. The thought of Elvis and teddy bears being a sexy bed pillow needing to withstand moisture struck me as so funny.
    Keep up the great posts!
