Wasn't quite sure how to title this. Smiley

My best friend is the singer for 'Saving Jane' (an Ohio band) so I thought I'd do something special for one of her Xmas gifts. Since I've known her forever and recognize how far she's come, I thought this would be cute.

I converted images of her three album covers to a pink/magenta spectrum (to match the scarf) and printed them on fabric that you can run through an ink jet printer. The quote says "What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us. - Emerson"

I left a little room for stitching and sewed them in order of most recent to the very first, making sure that the stitches only went through the lining and don't show on the outer velvety part of the scarf.

It was fairly easy to do and think there are so many ways you could tweak this to make a personalized gift for someone you love. If you're super ambitious you could even make the scarf as well.

Tips: Heat set the printed fabric by placing a piece of scrap fabric over top and ironing on high. Also, the printer fabric is thick and your fingers will hurt if you sew in long blocks of time. Smiley

Can you please post your supplier for inkjet printer fabric?  It would be perfect for a couple of projects I've been dying to do...

Thanks!

I got the printer fabric at JoAnn Fabrics in the aisle that houses the fabric paint. It's about $8 for three bloody sheets,  though I'm sure if you searched the Internet you could find it for less money. It was an impulse buy for me, so whatcanyado.

Can't think of the brand I purchased, but there were several. Just be sure you pick up plain fabric. It was mixed with all the printer iron-on material that comes in the same type of envelope.

when i first saw the pics and hadn't read what it was, i thought it was a guitar strap.

that is a very cool scarf, and i think it'd make a cool guitar strap too  Cheesy  i don't play guitar, but i love personalized guitar straps

You're right! This probably would be a great idea for a guitar strap, too. Oh the possibilities...
