"How to Print on Fabric"!!!

I was searching the internet and found this tutorial and thought you could use it...

"How to Print on Fabric"
Supplies:
*Freezer Paper
*Scissors
*Muslin
*Iron
*Sheet of printer paper (or ruler)

Step 1: Gather your Supplies

Step 2: Take your muslin, lay it out flat and trace around your printer paper onto it. Now cut out your fabric. It should be the same size as your printer paper, or slightly smaller. Larger will not work, so make sure it is just slightly smaller than your piece of paper. Now, you will also trace your printer paper again, but onto your freezer paper, making it the same size as your printer paper. Cut out both your fabric and freezer paper.

Step 3: You are now going to "fool" your printer into thinking it is printing onto paper! What you need to do is take your iron, set it on hot with NO steam. Take your freezer paper and with SHINY side up, place your fabric onto it. They should be an almost perfect fit. Now iron your muslin onto the freezer paper. They will adhere to one another. That is the reason for the shiny side being up, as this side sticks to your fabric. I just work the hot iron around the fabric checking the edges to see if it is stuck together. This doesn't take long.

Step 4: Once your fabric and paper are one. You are now going to feed this into your printer as you would any piece of printer paper. Just remember as to which side your printer prints onto, as you see mine goes in upside down.

Step 5: Now the fun begins, printing onto your fabric! Choose whatever now it is that you want to print onto your fabric. You can print out vintage images, sayings, quotes, doodles...the sky is the limit! And all you need to do is hit....PRINT! Your printer will feed your fabric thru just as if it were printing onto paper!

Step 6: Pull your fabric from the freezer paper. Now you can cut or tear away your images, stitch your doodles, or make them into small pillows, etc. The sky is the limit!!!!

Washing Clothes Recipe!!

Never thought of a "washer" in this way before...imagine having a recipe for this!!!
Years ago a southern grandma gave the new bride the following recipe:
This is the original recipe, with spelling errors and all.

WASHING CLOTHES

Build fire in backyard to heat kettle of rain water. Set tubs so smoke won't blow in your eyes if wind is pert. Shave one hole cake of lie soap in bolin' water.

Sort things, make 3 piles
1 pile white,
1 pile colored,
1 pile work britches and rag's
To make starch, stir flour in cool water to smooth, then thin down with boiling water:

Take white things, rub dirty spots on board, scrub hard, and boil. then rub colored don't boil just wrench and starch. Take things out of kettle with broom stick handle, then wrench and starch,

Hang old rags on fence.

Spread tea towls on grass.

Pore wrench water in flower bed, Scrub porch with hot soapy water. Turn tubs upside down..

Go put on clean dress, smooth hair with hair combs. Brew cup of tea. sit and rock a spell and count your blessings.

Paste this over your washer & dryer. Next time when you think things are bleak, read it again, then kiss that washer & dryer and give thanks...Every morning you should hug your washer & dryer, and also your toilet...those two-holers used to get mighty cold! And we thought we had it rough!
