You should be ridiculously proud of it!!!  That is fantastic!  LOVE IT.  And I too haven't heard of inkjet printable cotton so I too am grateful for your share.  MUCH appreciated.  Yowza - that is just too cool.  LOVE IT.  LOVE IT.

Ok, so I don't have cable/satellite at home, so I must admit I've never seen The Walking Dead (though I just requested season one from the library to see what all the Hoopla is about!), but I really love the clash of all the different elements on this bag!  It's super cool!

How did you get the ink not to run? The fear I have with inkjet fabric is that the ink will run as soon as I put it to wash and ruin the whole project.

Aw, thanks guys! Smiley

Most are pre-treated with some kind of chemical that sets the ink. Or you can buy something called "bubble jet set" (I think) and do it yourself with plain 100% cotton.  Just allow the ink to 'set' overnight before you wet it and you should be good, although I think it's best to just gently handwash them in any case.  Also! Always use genuine inks - if you're using those diy refills for your printer you won't (at least I didn't) get optimal results.

awesome bag. totally awesome!
I love the walking dead and you've put all the characteristics so nicely in the bag!
I might be stealing your idea haha Cheesy
Do you think it would work the same with 100% cotton ironed to freezer paper?

It should work the same; that's basically all those printable sheets are. I have tried it myself but my printer keeps having trouble running them through and I was wasting so much ink that it actually worked out cheaper to buy the expensive packaged ones.  Roll Eyes

I'm a zombie-fanatic and this is everything I would want in a bag!  The "don't open! dead inside!" Patch seems very funny on a bag to me- good choices all around.
