Not sure if this goes here, but my son made mittens in art class and brought the picture home. My first thought was I had to make these for him. So I copied his picture onto fabric through my printer and then cut two pieces (per mitten) of black fleece I had on hand. I sandwiched the picture between and sewed. He loves them and has worn them everyday since. Now my daughter wants some!

So cute! maybe a  dumb question, but do you have a special printer to be able to do that (print on fabric) or is that an iron on?
any how I love them!

its fabric that comes in a set of 12 near the iron ons. You use your regular printer (you can find an image on the computer and print directly on it). I just used the copy function of the computer. You peel off the backing and its fabric.  Hope that makes sense
Mine is "inkjet printing cotton sheets" made by Jacouard, but there are many different makers out there, you jsut have to make sure that its the cotton sheets not a transfer paper.
