I am so excited to finally post in this section.  I've been so inspired by all the embroidery that I wanted to try it out and I am now totally hooked.  So the hubby and I are big third eye blind fans...yes, even 10 years later.  And we have just got our first house that we are hoping to stay in for a while and we are wanting to turn our basement into a game room, with the main theme to be bands.  Well, I decided to print off a picture of a sign they have onto the computer fabric you feed into the printer.  And some satin stitch later you get this........

I know...the wrinkles are killing me.  I ironed the hell out of that thing and can't get them out.  So a question for all you embroidery masters...I left the backing on the fabric paper b/c the fabric itself is so thin you can't get hardly anything through there without making huge holes and making really bad stitches.  I really like the idea of printing onto fabric to embroider, so is there anything out there for doing that?  But I'd love to hear any feedback and suggestions!

Shocked 10 years? Wow, that's depressing...

Great work!

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

This is a blast from the past. I didn't even remember who they were I had to look it up. Aww, the 90's.

I haven't tried printing onto fabric but you could always print onto an iron-on transfer sheet and then iron onto the fabric. Let us know how it works next time

Thanks so much for all the nice comments.  Oh yes...the 90s, that sounds funny to say b/c it doesn't seem that long ago.  The iron on transfer is a really good idea.  Didn't even think of that...thanks!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

They make a transfer pencil that you can use to trace or draw on to tracing paper, then iron on to your fabric.  Mine is red, I don't know if they come in other colors.  The directions say that you should make sure to cover any of the pencil marks with your stitches, but mine has washed right out of bright white cotton and linen every time.  This method doesn't change the texture or hand of your material at all, so if you're looking to stiffen it up at the same time I bet the iron-on transfer would be a better option.
