Michelle, I cant believe I did it again! I bought a cotton knit fabric, too heavy I mean to thick, like you said only way to use is like a wrap, don't you think the front tails are too short? they don't stay like a wrap unless putting  a pin or something hehehe. By the way I'm not giving up OHHHH NOOOOOOOO!
I have problems with the sleeves, first time sewing something is not straight, I washed my fabric before started and the #$#$@#!! !! fabric shrink about an inch, anyway I started cutting and sewing and I said no problem an inch is nothing, oh gosh,too short in my shoulders so no way I can use it like everyday, unless I don't move and stay like a photograph.
 Remember that I said I'm going to buy 2 fabrics? well... I did, I bought the same fabric. Sooo the other one I'm going to do something else Cry and buy another one, this time very light wayyyyyyyyyyyyy to light, no matter if I freeze Undecided.
 I followed your instructions for the finishing and it worked.  I mean If I don't wear it, If I just show anybody  my cardi wrap no one is going to notice is too small, the sleeves are crooked and yes! looks professional.
 I'm going to try it again and again. By the end I should it buy in cashmere with all this mistakes I'm making. Anyway I wanted my cardi to have pride and dignity so, Is going to have it hehehe.
Michelle dontt ask for pics  I need a sewing or seam-stress(?) psychologist at this moment and heavy doses of whatever. Later I will show you what I did.

Bye for now.

Click on Transfers Unlimited or Washable transfers.  You will have the idea. (is nothing we were talking about no solvents involved)
You know what I thought in the beginning of this tread (thread?) that we were talking about the Goop Transfer or (Goof transfer) of course not.
Sorry to start a different topic.
I will post tonight or tomorrow the t-shirt I made with this stuff. Hopefully the camera flash will let us see the shinny image.

After you are done reading the directions you will see where I got stuck, is  with: transfering the image to the surface you want! In my case was the bag (tonight I will do it in a t-shirt). And directions said, put more Goop transfer on the back of the picture, and Iron it. (I dont have the special heat paper that they sell).  Hooby Looby didnt have anything in inventory, just the jar with the Goop (type glue) thingy, and I took the last jar. Cry

Hope this help. Did I say I use laser image?
Thanks for the compliment I needed someone to feed my ego! And thanks to be here for all of us!!!

I have serious doubt about your cardi wrap Wink Are you sure you didn't buy it?Huh (joking) That's awesome, like the fabric a lot! You did an excellent work there. I think you are the first one to post a Homemade Cardi-Wrap. That's what I'm talking about the classic/elegant look. You are pretty so I think anything looks good on you. The pics are great they capture everything I need it to know.Besides I love big photos I can apreciate better others work.
 I had 2nd. thoughts about making it, you know the cheap homemade look (I'm not that good sewing), but yours looks G-R-E-A-T!!! So Michelle I'm going today to the fabric store, Hopefully by Monday I will have some pics.
You Inspired me even more! Thanks for posting the pics.
Ohh by the way I use the photoshop (30 day trial  Shocked) and you can make even the teeth whiter, erase wrinkles, pimples ( I have some) etc....hehehehe).

Thanks for everything.  Laura

Well I don't know where or How to start... I'm experimenting, with the Transfer Goop.


Ok that was my 1st attempt, far away from perfection.

Here's the 2nd attempt, very happy about the pic, not too clear and glossy as the directions said but I'm happy, by the way you can see the tag  of the product  I'm using. Is not clear enough but the transfer is supposedly cured in the paper.


Next I cut it, got rid of the  paper you can see in the 1st pic little rolls of it, so now I have a transparent plastic with the image of my daughter's cat.
Everything sound good right? NOPE not right
Here is the problem, HOW CAN I ADHERE THE PLASTIC THINGY TO FABRIC?Huh
I follow the indications and was the recipe for a perfect mess. This is what I was trying to do: Glue the pic or transfer to my FIRST reconstructed or deconstructed cargo pants (used 2 of them) in..........a CARGO BAG!!!! my 1st craftster craft!! need to finish it , but ok that's not the point. Grin
I messed the transfer and the bag Cry Cry Cry
Here's a visual of my idea, cant see the mess, cant see the pic. I swear the pic is not that glossy and looked original/nice in the cargo bag (damn flash).

Any way I'm trying to get rid of plastic or glue from the bag, and the "ink" from the transfer parts are gone. I know I need to try again.



Just wanted to vent, AND I DID!!! Grin Grin Grin

OHHHHHHHHHHHH MY, Oh My !!!! You just cleared everything. Do you know how much time I invest looking for this answer?Huh Why we use different media ( I don't know if this is the right terminology) to make different transfers? and which printer is the right for a project?(ink or laser).

You need to post this in a separate tread Just to get rid of  our spider webs of confusion.


YOU ROCK!!!! Oh yeah, Oh yeah (picture me dancing)

Heyy michelle,Congratulations!!!!.
 I spent $13.75 for the pattern and I don't have a serger, I'm jealous, very jealous. And you are right the pattern looks so simple. I need to go and buy fabric, just waiting for $$$$$$$$$$$$. And if you said was so easy to put it together, I should by at least 2 different fabrics  Grin.

And thanks to post the type of fabric you used. I always have issues (lots of them) buying the correct fabric for any project. And I'm not going to tell the time I invest looking for the right fabric that ends being the wrong one  Cry. Sooo I'm going to look for the Poly stretchy suede.
