I'm pretty sure that everyone has seen those totebags with the printed photos on them...like a dog, wedding, etc. Does anyone know how to take a photo and put it on fabric w/o printing the photo on an sheet of iron on paper?

Some transfer techniques are discussed here:
about halfway down the first page of this thread: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=4747.0 they talk about printing directly on to fabric by ironing it to freezer paper first, and then heat setting.  It looks pretty interesting.

I've bought some goo that allows you to take an image and transfer it to fabric or what have you.  Now I haven't used it yet so I can't swear that it works.  I'll try it and let you know

I use to print fabic with my printer, first I cut a piece of freezer paper the same size as a sheet of paper, you then fuse the shiny side of the freezer paper to your fabric, use a white or off white high thread count cotton fabric, you may need to print at a lower resolution, and be sure to heat set the ink. Do know that after a period of time printing fabric will eventually damage your print heads and it uses alot of ink up and its not very water proof.

I used the freezer paper method too...that is until I found a print on fabric that's already treated, and washable.

It's made by Jacquard...you can go to their website and see if there's a retailer near you or, you can order it at Dharma Trading.

Jeeze...I just posted some tips on that in another topic...and now I don't remember exactly which one...if you decide to try it and want some tips...just ask, and I'll put them here again.
