That sailer ship is something extraordinary, amazing work!


Great! Thank you for the clear instructions! say hi to your mini-friend!


I couldn't get to that link...crucial question please - is it colorfast for the wash?

Awww! I *love* sweet little toads!!!

How do you get the ink to be permanent? Doesn't it run if it gets wet?


Blogworld amazes me ... last night I was wondering if taping fabric to paper & printing on it would work (not with quite the same idea in mind, but similar) and this morning, the answer pops up in my Google Reader lol ... thank you.

I set the ink with a hot iron long enough that the tape/ribbon doesn't burn and so far I have not had a problem with the ink running although these jackets are not things I would throw in the washing machine and dryer. I will have to test it out . I think it might fade a bit but not run and that would only add to the "vintage charm". When freezer paper stenciling was a big trend last year , we made t shirts and I forgot to heat set one and it really really faded in the washing machine but the heat set ones didn't. I hope this answers some of your questions.


You are like St. Francis with the flora and fauna!! Thanks for the label info. Brilliant.

I have given you an award on my blog. Please visit my blog for the details:
Thanks for your amazing blog!


Thanks for the tutorial--what a multitude of possibilities if offers, though I'll have to work on my taping skills.


Recently found your site and it's now one of my favorites. Love your work!


I love this tutorial! I think a lot of crafters look for easy, fun ways to add labels to their items!


Your jackets are amazing... and this idea is genius! All I need is a printer :o)


i love the green jacket with the ship! ;)

Great tutorial Margie!
I never thought about printing directly on the seam, I always used inkjet transfer paper but this method is less expensive and the result seams to be even better, the black color came out very intense. Thank you sooo much for the tutorial and it was GREAT seeing the beautiful jackets again! And the tiny ranita made me so nostalgic! I had so many of these little creatures in the backyard of one of the places that I lived in Cuba! Over there they are known as ratita platanera!
