Discover the magical world of photo transfer, and find endless possibilities for creating your own memories in fabric! Anything that can be photocopied or printed on a computer printer can be transferred to fabric. So get out your favorite photograph, letter, child's drawing, flowers from your garden, the final payment on your house, or a favorite piece of needlework -- and learn the technique for stitching a beautiful keepsake.

  • The process is fun and EASY. No chemicals involved.
  • Preserving memories is today's hottest craft trend.
  • Learn transfer techniques that use a color laser photocopier or a computer printer.
  • Instructions for 4 projects, including a pillow, a wallhanging, and 2 quilts.
  • Exciting color photos of quilts, clothing, and other projects provide additional creative inspiration.
  • Information on products and sources, as well as mail-order photo-to-fabric companies.
  • FYI: we also have Inkjet Transfer Paper for Fabric, Bubble Jet Set and Foundation sheets for creating Permanent Fabric Printouts directly from your Inkjet
