Starting with one of my favorite Madonna photos, then changing it to a lovely pink hue.....print it onto fabric and voila.....a Madonna bag. [/glow]











The color is a bit distorted due to my cheap digital camera, but the colors are actually different shades of pink.

Well first off........yes you can use your home computer and printer to print on fabric. Either buy sheets of fabric for this purpose or you can use 200 count muslin and freezer paper.
Secondly, Esther? What the heck IS that about. What is worse, is you can go to Madonna.com and............well, just go there, you will see what I mean. Weird. haha

Esther is an important figure to those who study Kabbalah.

Beautiful bag!

Thank you all for the lovely comments.
I got my printer fabric in the fabric and notions section of Hobby Lobby. It is by June Tailor and costs about $6 for 4--- 81/2 X 11 sheets. A bit expensive if you do it that way. Thanks to another craftster I found out that you can use either bleached or non-bleached 200 count muslin. You simply iron 8 1/2 X 11 pieces of it onto freezer paper. You iron it onto the shiny side. This makes the fabric stable enough to feed through the printer. Simple and sooo sooo much fun. Better go to PrintPal.com and start ordering tons of printer ink.....haha. Have fun.
