Project 45: Making your own fabricDecember 14, 2011
The first step in the fabric calendar project was printing the calendar design onto fabric. A friend let me use a few sheets of printable fabric called Printed Treasures. It’s actual fabric that you run through your inkjet printer. You then peel off the backing and sew it. This worked pretty well! Here is a bad photo of the sheets drying on my indoor clothesline:
You can see that they frayed a bit but overall they turned out pretty great.
It occurred to me after I finished the project that if I wanted to do multiple versions of the calendar I could have used a service like Spoonflower. Spoonflower is a local company that does print on demand fabric. You can create anything you want. It’s kind of incredible. I might still give it a try.
Check back tomorrow to see all of the materials I bought for the calendar project.
