You can see this image as a greeting card in our sister store on Etsy here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/101084132/elvgren-pinup-girl-sailor-climbs-mast?
These blocks can be used to make quilts, pillows, tote bags, door hangers, sachets for potpourri, appliques for t-shirts, or other fabric creations, uses being limited only by your imagination!
This is NOT an iron-on transfer, the image is actually printed onto the fabric, 200 thread count, 100% cotton. Making the blocks colorfast is easy, we include instructions for doing so with each block. Once the colorfast treatment is done, printed sheets can be washed by hand or machine on the gentle cycle in cold water without detergent. If soiled, you can add a small amount of liquid fabric softener to cold water wash. Lay flat to dry.
The image will be centered in the fabric block with a white border around it, to give you some seam allowance. Please note that vintage image sizes vary, and are not optimized for modern frames (in case you are buying the fabric with an eye to framing it.)
We make our fabric blocks from vintage images from our personal collection (we've been collecting ephemera for over 40 years.) We scan the originals, and then clean and repair the damage that time has done to the original using Photoshop. We then print them using a high resolution printer at 300 DPI. The resulting fabric block is deeply saturated, and guaranteed to please.
The watermark on the image above does not appear on the fabric block you will receive.
