Ok Grin
 I just used Word...and the clipart from it as well.



The first one is an octopus (I like how the legs are loopy like the writing)
The second one is a fly, and the third are bats.

These are a lot of fun to make....and all the other possibilities...
I didn't use vinegar for mine. After they were done printing, I heat set them with an iron. I have washed them and the ink stays and nothing smears or runs Grin

Thank you so much for the tute...  The possibilities are endless!  I'd love to make my own fabric, like spoonflower.com...  Also love how you came across the vinegar solution for getting the ink to stay!

Ooowww I like the bats Poosel!!!  Very cute!  I havent tried just the heat set as I was told by a friend that laundry detergents can lighten them drastically.  And as my dolls can be popped in the washing machine well .. me no likie!

I agree, spoonflower is fab fun Babychel!

**** UPDATE **** 
Thanks to everyone testing out this method ............this is what we have learnt so far!

Heat Set
Those of you not heat setting your printed fabric after soaking in vinegar are seeing fading of black ink when vigorously washed in hot water and soap.  So dont forget to HEAT SET -  use an iron, or like me a hairdryer on high heat or you can give your dryer a go!

Colored Printing
I havent tried color yet . Just wasnt what I was after however Ive heard from 3 people all who had difficulty with some colors.  Lighter colors such as pink are disappearing in the vinegar I have no idea if that is the printer ink they are using or this is a normal reaction.  Everyone that has tested the method so far has said that the black ink stays wonderfully!
