- Sewing machine
- Colorfast printer fabric
Scan a favorite recipe into your computer, and print it onto colorfast printer fabric (junetailor.com). Let ink dry.
Peel paper backing from fabric. Iron fabric to set ink. Rinse, and let dry. Trim top of fabric, leaving a 1/4-inch seam allowance.
Trim sides and bottom, allowing for a 1/8-inch seam allowance. Fold in and iron edges so they will stay in place, making stitching easier.
