Make It: Transferring Images To Fabric With Bubble Jet Set
From the Rockabilly episode of Creative Juice


Materials:
Bubble Jet Set solution
Bubble Jet rinse
100% cotton fabric
funnel
wash tub
freezer paper iron-on
pinking sheers/or a serger
iron
printer and computer

Steps:

1. Soak fabric in Bubble Jet Set solution for 5 minutes. Funnel excess solution back into the bottle. Allow fabric to dry (a hairdryer can be used to speed up the drying process).


2. Iron treated fabric onto the shiny side of the freezer paper.


3. With the fabric ironed to the paper, it can be fed through a printer exactly like a sheet of paper. Print scanned image and allow to cure for 1 hour.


4. Peel fabric off freezer paper.




5. Add 4 caps (2 oz.) of Bubble Jet Rinse to 1 gallon water. Rinse fabric in solution. Next, hand-wash fabric. Allow to air dry or use a hair dryer to speed up the drying process.
