I printed one image onto cotton.
I made my lacy cotton fabric using machine sewing and soluble fabric.
After rinsing the soluble fabric away, I stretched it out to close to the proportions I wanted - the first sign that things might not work out how I planned. (You can see it under the printed cotton.)
I reversed my image and printed it out onto t-shirt transfer stuff (note: I didn't really think about the fact that it was a plastic sheet!).
I ironed my t-shirt image onto the lacy fabric. It was a complete image on plastic, with my lacy fabric on the back. Definitely not what I had envisaged.
The instructions said to use Glad Bake, which I confused with baking paper. Once again, I have ironed paper onto my work and it didn't want to come off.
I eventually pulled the lacy cotton away and have some slightly dirty cotton - NOT the effect I was after.
I also have a piece of paper with a distressed image on it. Not sure what to do with that, I don't think I will throw it away just yet. Maybe I can use it with the embellishing machine - if the plastic won't be too bothered by that. That idea is for another day.
Oh well, back to the drawing board. I will have to think about what I can do with the image that DID work, the one that is printed onto the cotton.
