my own version of prayer flags

    find some prayers you want to use in illustrator, create line art by selecting the object- then select live trace- then expand then highlight the object again hit ungroup and erase any white spots left over from the trace then reverse the image

  2. now repeat with the other images -------------- and print the images off on heat transfer paper now you can either iron on or use a heat press ---------- cut out your images

    I used a heat press preheat press to about 200 ------------------------ get your parchment paper near when the machine is ready lay fabric down, folled by transfer sheet, image faces down ----------------- press the handle down and hold for 30 secs then release handle remove transfer right away

  4. let cool and repeat with other peices
