Fabric Transfer

Fabric Transfer

Have you ever wanted to do a fabric transfer? Today I finally managed to use my transfer paper that I bought a few weeks back to do fabric transfer. I found a fantastic graphic and tutorial at The Graphics Fairy (great site!) and thanks also to Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage who did the […]
