Wednesday's Wanderings #8 - Israel or Bust


I am wandering around Israel as you read this.  I prepared this WW block before I left. 
The books and map were printed on fabric and then fused. 
 I used book covers from Amazon.com for the images.

I use fabric that is sold for putting through an inkjet printer.  It is pretreated so that the image is permanent and won't wash out.  My favorite brand?  EQ Printables.  No matter which brand you use, these sheets are very expensive.  Before I print on the fabric, I do trial printings with paper.


I can then adjust the size and the color if necessary, before I do the final printing.
I stitched the words by hand with floss and added the cute detail of the suitcase handle.
