Printing on fabric

My friend, Wanda, is making a fabric book as a wedding present for friends of hers and wanted to know how to print onto fabric. So I dragged out my bottle of Bubble Jet Set and package of freezer paper, both of which I've had for years without ever opening.

We soaked fabric in the Bubble Jet Set and ironed it onto the freezer paper but it didn't go through the printer smoothly and got a bit scrunched up. I will have to do some more experimenting but I might not have fed it into the bypass tray properly.

Finally, I opened up a packet of fabric sheets for the printer (which I've also had for years without ever using) and that worked really well. The fabric didn't get scrunched up by the printer at all.
