So for mother's day I decided to take some family photos and make my mother a scrap book. Not just any old scrapbook though one made out of material. I bought a small thing of fabric glue because I wasn't sure how else to get the pictures on the fabric.

Big mistake.

Apparently the fabric glue and the chemicals used to develop the photos had a chemical reaction and my pictures got red spots on them. It was really bad with my sister's graduation present. The worst part is I didn't even know until I gave it to my mom.

Oh no! I'm so sorry that happened, Crying Goddess. I would have thought that fabric glue would work for something like that.

I hope they are pictures that you have other copies of Sad.

Yeah they came off of a digital camera so I can get them printed a ton of times.

as they're digi and the item wont be washed have you considered printing onto fabric?
you can buy fabric sheets ready to be printed on, or make your own with freezer paper!

Yeah I was going to suggest printing them onto iron on paper and then ironing them onto white fabric.  then stitch the fabric photo into place. 

If you still want to use photos why not stitch photo corners on to hold the photo in place.

adhesives can be so weird sometimes, I had some jewelry glue once that when it came in contact with a varnished surface would bloom up into this bubbly white crystal thing.

ok i'm really sorry to sound like the know it all but the photo nerd in me has to point out that if the pictures were off a digital camera then they weren't ever developed they were just printed, like you would print a peice of paper but with high quality paper and ink. ok sorry just had to get that out, but there still could have been a chemical reaction or the ink bled or whatever.

really sucks that it didn't work cuz a fabric scrapbook is such a cool idea. if you don't want to go through the hassle of printing on fabric you could try stitching the photo straight to the fabric. if you do it by hand i would make sure the needle's pretty thin and sharp and if you do it on a machine just make sure you have a fairly long stitch length cuz if the holes from the stitching are too close together then it just acts as a perferation and tears. oh and stiffen the fabric with fabric stiffner or starch or interfacing before sewing too so that its not as floppy......hmmmmm now i'm actually wanting to go try this for myself, i dont have anyone to make a scrapbook for right now though  Undecided

So sorry for that! I remember I wanted to do a scrap book for my husband one day and I spend my day with a Polaroid camera taking pictures of the place we meet and stuff and I decided to cut and well you know what happens when you cut a polaroid picture. Until this day, it still makes me sad.  Sad I was not able to give him a gift.
