I am preparing to make a mascot costume shaped like my county. Any suggestions (aside from foam) on how to stable-ize it while remaining flexible enough to sit & walk and also not break down the way tim tex type stuff does. ANY help would be apriciated! Thanks so much Smiley

You can also buy pre-treated fabrics that are attached to freezer paper.
This site has lots of projects and fabric printing info..

I haven't. But If I did, I might just use more muslin underneath. or plain cotton. or a pattern if I was feeling fancy.

Hey, sorry about the unhelpful reply. I just googled  Laser Printing On Fabric  and this one came up first and looks very helpful!...

I didn't open any others, but there were a few other helpful looking sites!

Our school does an annual auction with class projects, too! Iv'e done a few quilts for them.

I have used my scanner to print onto treated fabric with good results. It does take a few test runs to get it all set up right.

Since you are starting with bigger pics, tracing yourself (or with volenteers) may be simpler.

As for coloring, Iron all those pictures onto freezer paper first so the fabric doesn't move while the kids color. I like fabric markers.

I've used fabric crayons once (for a single block)and I think you color onto paper, then iron onto the fabric. There may be other brands for coloring right onto fabric.
