DIY: fabric polaroid

Hello! Remember when I showed you all of those lovely poladroids? Well here it the DIY I was talking about.
It is really easy, all you need is:
  1. Iron on transfer paper [get it at wal mart in the paper section]
  2. a printer
  3. Poladroid maker [Download it here]
  4. some neutral colored fabric [beige is best]
  5. a sewing machine [if you want to sew it on to something.. you don't have too]
 So here is what you do:
  • Pick out your pictures for your poladroid maker and drag them onto the cute little polaroid maker.

  • Next put all of those poladroids into a text document of some sort. Adjust them so that you can fit about nine on one page. Here is what mine looked like:
IMPORTANT: make sure flip them or else they will iron on backwards!

  • Print them out on your iron on adhesive.
  • Iron them onto some fabric. I chose beige because it didn't disrupt the color behind it. 
  •  Cut it out of the fabric. 
  •  You can sew it on, or do whatever you like with it. Some other ideas would be to use it in scrap-booking, hand them from Christmas lights as decoration, put them on your wall. The options are endless. I used mine to decorate a zipper pouch:
