A creative way to transfer printed images! Meet Dee from A Lapin Life!

Alright bloggin friends I have been having a BLAST having blogging guest posta here on my little blog---and I am guessing you are enjoying it also!  Today we have the AMAZING Dee from a Lapin Life here for a visit----and boy ohhh boy is she going to knock your socks off with this SUPER COOL transfer idea!  I am ALL about new techniques and this one sounds right up my ally!  Go and check out all of her great projects, she has such great taste!  

Hi! I'm Dee from: A Lapin Life

I'm so excited to be here. I can't wait to show you my craft projects! Jaime has given me this wonderful opportunity!  It's so great to be here with YOU! I can't thank you enough Jamie. You ROCK!  

I've been on a french kick lately. French wine, french music and now french looking crafts. Here are just a few of my favorites.

 Burlap on Stretched Art Canvas - Chalkboard Paint and Terra Cotta Pots
French Chicken Wire Frame -French Postcards

New Project: French Pillows
This will blow your mind. No more messy oils or trying to put your fabric in your printer using spray adhesive.  You can now make fast and easy projects with a woodworkers transfer tool. *Make Pillows, Tags, Cards, Memo Boards, Ribbons, Shirts, Team Logos, Drapes, Gifts, etc! You can also use it on wood. 
Added bonus your fabric can be washed!Please use cotton fabric!

   I'm taking a peek to see how the toner transferred.

Supplies: laser printer, paper, cotton fabric, wood cutting board and a woodworkers transfer tool.
Plug in your woodworkers transfer tool and let it heat up.  Using a circular motion press the transfer tool onto the paper  firmly. You can pull up a corner of the paper to see how you like it. If you want the picture to be even darker go over it again. The nice thing about this project is once you place the transfer tool onto the paper it will adhere to the fabric. Let's say your working on a large project you can finish it the next day. The paper will stay where you placed it on the fabric. It's ready when your ready!!!
Another bonus it does not smear.
My husband's wanted to see how easy it was to transfer the toner to the paper. 
He was amazed!

 For this project I decided to make pillows. 

You can use either black or colored ink on your cotton fabric.

Here I added burlap and I also used black coffee to give the light fabric an aged look.

The french stamp was fun to use.

I enjoyed finding pictures from The Graphic Fairy Blog.

I hope you enjoy using the woodworkers transfer tool as much as I did! 
If you would like to get the tool you can find it on my sidebar.

Thanks Jaime!

So so so cool right?!??!!!!  Think of the possibilities for this----I always have a hard time with my citra solv transfer method because it fades after a few washes---sounds like this might be the new hot transfer method!  I am so honored that Dee wanted to come and share it with us!  
Yayyyy for blog friends and great crafty inspirations---now go visit and get to know Dee!

My followers are so sweet! Thanks Cindy and Kathy for coming by so early and seeing my new project.

I'm not really sure if using an iron would work. I know the woodworkers transfer tool will give you great results.

Congratulations Dee! This is a wonderful project. Does it only work with a laser printer? You are such a smart girl to figure this out. OMG think of all the things we can make. Love your work. rj

Thanks Daniella and RJ!

If you don't have a laser printer you can take your picture to a place like Staples. They can make a laser copy for you. They can also enlarge your picture if you want it bigger.

Have fun with your projects.

Dee ❤

Just use *regular paper for your laser printer. The woodworkers transfer tool does the rest. It's that easy! Just remember to use cotton fabric.
The tool is on my sidebar if you would like to buy one.

Happy crafting!
