I am going to give the printing on fabric thing another go - prolly tonight!  The directions on setting with the vinegar cloth sound easy enough...  The only other issue I had when I tried this the first time was that my printer pulled the paper/fabric REALLY fast at first and it got bunched up in the printer half way through. Tongue Maybe I needed to iron it on to the paper better?

BTW- I make my patterns out of freezer paper.  You can draw on the paper side and they dont rip really easy, so they last longer.... (random tip) Cheesy

Ok, I tried this.
The problem I was having apparently was the front roller things werent feeding the paper through because it was curling.
I got it to work, though, after figureing out that issue.
I must not be getting something about vinegar setting.
I took my piece of printed fabric and put it on the ironing board.  Forogot about the absorbant material underneath part.... but then, I dipped a scrap of fabric into vinegar and squeezed it out.  It was good and damp, but not soaking.  I placed it over the image and ironed til dry.  Some spots bled, but that was prolly due to the no absorbant fabric underneath bit... Then I water tested it to see how it did.  I dripped some water on a few spots (figuring it was screwed anyway due to the bleeding that already happened.)  and it bled like mad.  What am I missing?

There is this stuff called bubble jet set you can buy but I heard that your images fade badly if you use that stuff and its like $20.  and vinegar is in my pantry....  Smiley
advice?  shoudl I take this to a different topic? I totally hijacked the thread about this super cute shirt...  sorry...

Didnt even think about it bieng the printer...  My printer (Canon i9100) uses a different type of ink than  say Espon or Hp... Canon uses alcohol based inks, where everyone else uses water based... but that shouldnt effect it, should it??  Considering that I work at a computer store... thinking of calling Canon...

i LOVE that shirt.  wonderful work!
what kind of fabric is the bra printed on? is it sheer? i cant really tell.  also when you say you put the fabric on the freezer paper.  did you just iron it on then feed it through your printer?
