Hello Craftsters!

So for Christmas this year I decided that I was going to make everyone something- Corn Heaters! I've always had them in the house, so I can't imagine not having them around, they're so handy! I found some instructions online, along with instructions on how to print on fabric with a computer printer, so everyone ended up getting a personalized image on their heaters! This sounded like a great idea at the time, but after I decided to also make two smaller hand warmers to match and then decided to make 20 different sets, and then decided to put it off until the week before Christmas, and then decided to make both my parents and my boyfriend and his mother more gifts to match it turned out to be quite the process! In the end everyone really liked them, so I guess that's what counts. Here's some pictures!

 

Where The Wild Things Are!



HtichHiker's Guide to the Galaxy!



Vintage Travel Posters!



And a star pattern I made myself in Photoshop!


They really were alot of fun to make, or at least they would be in smaller numbers! Hopefully the photos will work!

love the patterns! My sister in law made some for christmas too but she used the kind of corn you use to feed livestock. They work really well but they smell like fritos when you warm them up. Or kinda like dirty socks. What did you use in yours? do they smell when you warm them up?

Yeah, I used the same kind of corn, but they just smell like popcorn to me. You can also put different kinds of seeds in them to make them smell differently, like cherry seeds or something like that, or even just some smelly oils- but the smells fades after a little while. Even your corn one will, I've had some in my house for awhile now and they don't smell at all!

I've heard that you shouldn't use the corn because it can catch fire. (There's always something wrong... something will always happen..  Tongue) Anyway.. I read somewhere that you should use flax seeds.. But these are wonderful! How did you print on the fabric? I love the Wild Things one...

I really love these...you picked some great images!
At first I thought you used that transfer paper that you can buy but then
I saw the vintage poster that you used and it looks much larger.
I'm curious too how you did it..... if you feel like sharing?
