Has anyone tried it with longer paper? Can't remember how long.. but you know.. longer than 8 1/2 x 11" ?   Because I'd really like to have one side of a purse have a photo, but the pattern is about  18" long..
Any idea? I'd really hate to have to cut the picture out and attatch it to the purse...

Thanks!  Got all the supplies in the mail though! Am all ready.

With some printers, you can print "banner" size (which basically means it prints a long sheet).  My cheapo Canon printer doesn't have that setting.  In the printer options, I just made the paper size 8 1/2 x 18 and it didn't seem to have a problem with it.

Try a test by taping two sheets of paper together lengthwise and printing something - even just minimal text so it won't waste the ink.

results of my tests,
I tried drill and poplin.
both printed out nicely, except they got caught and scrunched a little.
both came up alright when rinsed the first time, but when they dried it wad all yellowy and really faded.
I am beginning to think it might be the ink as I refill my catridges with a cheaper in which most of the time is ok but may not be suited to this style of project. I will try with my mums printer and see how it goes there.
will report back when done, which may take a few weeks busy busy busy.

hmm... I'm also trying to figure out how I might make the purse look cute, since I'm sure the photo wont take up the whole Purse.... but rather it's going to be one of those hobo bags by Tinafish-  So I'm wondering how it might actually look if I just cut it out, subract it from the normal pattern and stitch both sides together.... like, have middle of half the pattern just the photo... okay so I suck at explaining things.... hopefully someone gets my drift.

This is an amazing concept,  I must try it soon.  As for another place to purchase alum I know I've bought it in a store that sold raw wool.  It was meant for a mordent for dying wool.  You may want to try the type of stores that sells raw wool and or spinning supplies.  Hope this helps someone....

whitters you could add it as a pocket in the center of the side.
or just use this in one colour and the pieces next to it in another so that you stitch them together.

Did you use HOT water when you made the mixture?  Alum dissolves better in hot water.  As far as the little "dandruff" like stuff, just brush it off when the fabric is dry.

It may be the quality of the Alum.  I made the recipe using the Alum I purchased from ePharmacy.  I will try some of the Alum from the Asian shop and try it.  If mine doesn't work, it's probably the quality of the Alum (even though I didn't think there would be a "quality" issue.  Alum is Alum.  Mmmmmmm......Will let you know.
