plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

When I first saw these on iDIY, I assumed they were printed just like Miss Cowboy Boot‘s map.

I mean, the yellow is rich and the detail looks great. I was pretty sure they were screen printed, or maybe even Gocco’ed. But, better yet, they were printed at the bride’s home, on her ink jet printer. Wha?! Yeah, that’s right.

By using a technique that involves ironing freezer paper to the back of the handkerchief, you can print directly on fabric using your ink jet printer (so long as it is not water resistant).

You can visit the bride‘s blog for more details.
