I've printed some personalized cancer ribbons on Colorfast Printer Fabric by June Tailor. As recommended, I've backed one with iron on interfacing to avoid fraying when I cut them out but it's still not as stiff as I'd like. Before I work on the remainder of the sheet, does anyone have any recommendations. Since there are only 2" by 1" I'd rather avoid sewing them on to anything. (I've gotten myself into another fine kettle of fish.)
What do you think of gluing them to a piece of heavy cardstock cut out in the same shape?
I think there is an iron-on Peltex (a heavy interfacing. Haven't made any pins for a while, so I've forgotten what I used. I think I also used Steam-a-seam and a foam sheet at one time.
I finally just used Mother's other brand of iron interfacing and it will be good enough though if I ever do this again (and I won't) I might as well just print on the quality linen printer paper. My guess is it would be just as heavy and be a lot less bother. Should have thought of it in the first place.
I will recommend that you be very careful with your iron temperature when using the Colorfast Printer Fabric. I ended up scorching the first real run at the 1 minute mark. No problem with smearing however.
Thanks for the input. Mary Ellen
