Well, if you read my previous entry you will see that I was going to try and make the pillows I had posted a picture of using the CitroSolv method.......Well, if you also read the comment below my post, you will see that I had no luck with my transfers!
After emailing, and reading and searching blogs, I found another method that worked out FABULOUS! I used Lesley Riley's TAP Transfer Artist Paper which I bought on Amazon.com. It took a little over a week to get here but it was worth the wait. While I was waiting for it, I went to Michael's craft store and got a few other transfer methods to try but no matter what I did you could see where I put it on. So, those were epic failures too.
I still want to try the CitraSolv method (if I can find a copy machine that will work!) because there is so much you could use it for beyond fabric!
To make these pillows I followed a tutorial on http://www.shabbybeachnest.com/ Instead of the CitraSolv steps, I did the TAP transfers. Thank you Nicole Wright for those great instructions. This is the first project that I have ever sewn that turned out! Yeah!!
I used a canvas painters tarps from Home Depot. I washed it 2 times to get the gunk off and to also make it softer (like a pillow should be). The tarp was around $30 for a 12' x 20' size. I only used about 1/8 of it and made 4 pillows. So I should be able to make lots more. To buy the pillows in the Restoration Hardware catalog - $30 dollars (average) for EACH pillow. I just save myself $90.
