Perhaps it's a shoebox full of old family photos or a desire to do something creative with your Flickr feed, this DIY project is a keen way to transfer photographic memories into decorated and/or wearable items using Photoshop, printer transparency paper, and light sensitive dye...

What You'll Need:

  • Photoshop or similar image editing application
  • Printer that can print onto 8.5 x 11″ transparencies
  • Sewing Pattern
  • Fabric
  • Photo Fabric Dye
  • Negatives
  • Scissors
  • Scotch Tape
  • Masking Tape
  • Sponge Brush
  • Water
  • Measuring Cup or Mixing Bowl
  • Portable Hard Surface to work on
  • Additive Free Sop
  • Washing Machine
  • Sewing Machine

PhotoJojo breaks down the how-to into 10 steps, the hardest for newbies being cutting out a pattern. After readying the fabric, it's all a matter of "painting" the fabric with Photo Fabric Dye and letting UV do its magic.

And as the video below shows, one doesn't have to limited to smaller personal items like a skirt or a pillowcase (though, I'd lean towards a pillowcase as an ideal 1st try project). Those with higher aspirations could upholster a whole armchair with personalized photos from your family archives...or perhaps you Instagram feed!
