I read about this amazing new company over on Skip to my Lou and I cannot tell you how excited I am to try their products out. Inkbloom has created supplies that will let you design and print your own fabric at home. On an inkjet printer. I kid you not.
The fabric for this adorable bag was printed on an inkjet printer using Inkbloom's "wonder product," Loomtack. Loomtack is basically a self-adhesive fabric stabilizer that bonds to fabric to provide stability for printing. You can see how the process works here:
Don't think you're creative enough to come up with your own fabric designs? Inkbloom has a whole set of downloadable designs called Inkblocks you can use instead -- and you can even change the colors! I particularly love this set:
There are many things you'll be able to do with Loomtack, even print on vinyl to make decals.
I think I'm going to order some goodies from Inkbloom as a birthday gift to myself. Now I just have to figure out what to do with the fabric once I design it!
Do you love the I LOVE YOU graphic above as much as I do? You can score a free printable PDF of it by signing up for the Inkbloom mailing list (make sure to use the e-mail address you want the file sent to) AND becoming a fan of theirs on Facebook. Who doesn't love free goodies?
