Choose your transfer method. I am opting to use the transfer paper and stylus.
(If you are using transfer pens, skip ahead to step #5!
If you are using the iron-on transfers to get the design on your card,
simply follow the same instructions for transferring to fabric. Just don't make the card too hot with your iron,
or it may curl. If your cardstock curls, flatten it under a book or stack of magazines before it cools.)
ll taped and ready to go? Good! Transfer the image by going over the design firmly with the stylus.
No stylus? No problem! Just use another object with a dull point, such as a bamboo knitting needle.
You can even use a pen or a pencil, just take care not to puncture through the paper and mark on your fabric.
Jenny says: If using a pen to trace the design, opt for another color so you can clearly see where you've already traced.
Turn your fabric square over on to the backside and apply a thin line of fabric glue along all 4 sides.
Then stick it to your card front, in your place. You could also use spray adhesive here, if you're fancy like that.
Jenny says: Just be aware that spray adhesive is not kind to fabrics over time and this
will not be an heirloom piece if you use it. I'm just saying!
