Pam7040 - Thanks for your kind words.
Mary Kay - Great question! You'll need a total of five different photos. The photos can be from your digital camera - or if they are older photos which are printed, I'll show you how to scan them. You'll also need 2 sheets of inkjet fabric for the project (plus 1-2 as "backup" - just in case something doesn't print correctly.) You can either use pretreated fabric sheets (I've been using EQ Printables Cotton Lawn lately) - or you can treat your own fabric with Bubble Jet Set and iron it onto freezer paper. (I mention Bubble Jet Set in the videos, but don't go into how to prepare the fabric. I just ran out of time!)
Oh - also, I'll be using Photoshop Elements (PSE) for a good portion of the videos because it runs on both PC's and Mac's - and it lets you print custom sizes for your photos. So you'll need PSE - any version starting with version 4. (My apologies to those of you with version 3 - I tried to be inclusive of that version, but it's missing a key feature that was added in version 4.) If you don't already have a copy of PSE, look for it on sale at your local electronics store - or even consider purchasing an older version. The current version is 8, but you can get version 7 for around $40 at Amazon.com. It would work just fine for what I'll be going over. If you are on a Mac, please make sure you get the Mac version! Also for Mac users, it looks like Adobe didn't make a Mac version for PSE 7 - just PSE 6 and PSE 8. One more thing (for everyone): Adobe tends to update Photoshop Elements once a year (in late Aug or Sept); I just don't want anyone to be surprised when they announce a new version in a few months.
Other than that, you'll need some additional fabric to complete the pillow. I'll include those supplies in the instructions (that I have yet to complete). They will be available in the "Projects" section on this site though. I recommend waiting until after you have printed your photos before you choose the rest of the fabric anyway. It's much to find fabric to match your prints than it is to make your prints match your fabric!
If I think of anything else, I'll let you know.
