I decided to show you how to Print on Fabric using "Creating with Vintage Patterns CD"!  The first is a Vintage Collar and the second is a Bangle Cuff.

I've used crocheted flowers and crocheted pieces I found at an antique shoppe.

At your own risk, here's how to make your own. (Not all printers will feed the fabric).   I used my HP Photosmart printer and it works well.
Step 1
Gather muslin or light cotton fabric, freezer paper, iron, printer and Creating with Vintage Patterns CD.
Step 2
Iron the shiny side of the freezer paper to the "wrong" or back side of the fabric.

Step 3
Cut the ironed fabric piece to measure 8.5 x 11".
Step 4
Place fabric sheet in the printer (Know how your printer feeds your paper.)

Step 5
Using "Creating with Vintage Patterns" CD, print the desired pattern.
Step 6
Remove the freezer paper from the fabric.
Step 7
Cut off the top portion of the printed pattern. Pin to the pre-measured crocheted strip.
Step 8
Sew the fabric pattern to the crocheted strip.
Step 9
Hand sew a crocheted flower and button in the center frame of the pattern.
 For the Bangle Cuff, you'll use the same technique.

Great news from Splitcoast Stampers, General Stamping Talk Forum.  The card I posted yesterday was selected as a FAVORITE!  
Here's the link if you'd like to check it out.
The paper used on the card are from the new CD!  Post number 21 and I'm papercre8r on Splitcoast :)

Be sure to visit the Crafty Secrets blog, Design Team blogs and the shop will have all the newest releases!   There will be lots of fun techniques!
