TAP Trial

I finally had the opportunity to use the Transfer Artist Paper (TAP) that I recently bought. This product is very similar to the iron on sheets that you would use for making t-shirts, except the material you’re printing on is a polymer – which means it’s resistant to cracking and you’re able to adhere it to more than just fabric (such as wood and clay). TAP sheets are incredibly easy to work with, in fact, they behave exactly as any other iron on transfer – just print, iron onto your surface, and peel. For my first run with this product, I decided to make a pillow for my mom’s birthday using one of her favorite pictures of her when she was a little girl. Since the picture was pretty small, I pieced together a variety of shabby-chic style fabrics (I think it has a crazy quilting sort of feel to it) to create a border and then used a matching fabric for the backing. I think she’ll love it and it should match perfectly with a chair she has in her living room!

    I highly recommend giving these a whirl – supposedly they stand up to washing as well! Joann’s online store still has the 5 packs for 70% off if you’re interested.
