We crafty people need to figure a way to get around the whole "bubble jet set" stuff.  It is way to costly.  Let's try to figure out another way to SET the ink in the fabric so it can be washed.    We got around buying the fabric on the paper already.  I also am not into iron on transfers.  HELP

Okay. Okay. Okay.

I've been playing around with the freezer paper and the printer, along with fabric, yes.

I have tried a few things on it to keep it set in.  Well, only one has worked.

I put Aleene's "ok to wash" glue over top of the printed area.  You have to dab it on or it will smear.  Trust me.  I have ran this piece under hot and cold water.  I have let it sit in a bowl of water overnight.  Doing good so far.

I am going to try more.  I want to do some pictures for a quilt.  I don't even know where to get this "bubble jet set" stuff at.  I don't ever get to go to a joann's...Boo hoo.

After the glue dries can you tell that it was covered in glue?  And how does it feel?  I'm going to have to try this glue method, but it doesn't sound very snuggly covered in dried glue.  I've tried alot of things too to make the picture more permanent.  I've been putting pictures on purses and bags and I hate how the second water drips on it it's ruined.

The glue dries clear.  It does have a little "gloss" to it.  Not too stiff.  I haven't tried loosening it up some how.     

All in all, it looks like you put a cover over it with something.   Don't know how to describe.

Has anyone tried the waterproof inkjet ink that thommoose pointed out? ( http://www.rippedsheets.com/inkjet/sunsafe.html )

Looks kind of expensive, but then I haven't bought actual inkjet cartridges in forever, so I'm not sure how the refill kit compares with regular ol' new cartridges.

I'd love to know if someone has used it, though, and how true their claims are.

I haven't tried it, but I just spent $75 on a packaged set of 3 ink cartridges.  That was supposed to be a 'good deal'!  Ink is crazy ridiculous expensive!

old topic, but i just found it.  a few minutes ago, i discovered my printer prints on fabric wonderfully!  i just taped a piece of muslin around all four edges to the paper, set the printer on high-quality, selected "t-shirt transfer" for the paper type (warning--this will also automatically reverse the image), printed, and voila!  i dunked the piece in a bowl of cold water, swished in around, squeezed the water out, and rubbed dry with a paper towel, and it still looks perfect!  oh happy day!  i have a canon pixima i4000, and i'm using the canon ink.  i've also used it on the pre-treated fabric you can buy, and those pictures came out amazing!

What about spraying it with an acrylic spray or preservation spray?  I'll test it out on my own this weekend.
