Photo paper, cotton fabric and instructions booklet.
The First Step to Beautiful Stitchbook Projects:
Photo Transfer Paper is the key to making beautiful Stitchbook projects as it allows you to print your photographs onto fabric using an inkjet printer. Simply print your photo on the paper and iron it onto your chosen fabric.
This paper is designed to print images onto t-shirts using a home inkjet printer and therefore is a hard wearing transfer that can be used on a range of fabrics. It is perfect for use in Stitchbooks to print family photographs, and turn a fabric book into a photo album. It can also be washed at a normal temperature which means you can add it to clothing or use for washable baby books.
This is A4 size paper ( 8 2/8″ x 10 7/8″), which will fit as standard into UK inkjet printers and can be cut down to fit into other sizes. If you are in a different country please check it will fit before purchase.
This paper is for light coloured fabrics only and any pattern on the fabric will show through, so I recommend transferring to white cotton for best results. There are a lot of different brands of this type of paper and I have tried many over the past 8 years of making fabric books. This particular paper is the best I have found in quality, durability and ease of transfer.
This kit contains 4 sheets of photo transfer paper, an A3 size piece of white cotton poplin, and instructions to help you create perfect photographs for your Stitchbooks.
Although this paper may seem expensive, you can fit a whole lot of pictures onto one sheet, and the 4 in this pack are more than enough to create a whole Stitchbook.
