How to Print a Face on a Punching Bag

By Kathryn M. D'Imperio

Printing a face on a punching bag

Flip through your yearbook or photo album to find a photo of your nemesis. You can also look online at sites like Facebook for a photo of the person whose face you want to print on your punching bag.

Save the image to your computer. Scan the photo into your computer if you are using a printed photo or download it from the Internet if needed.

Open the photo in photo-editing software and clean it up to your liking. Crop the image so just the person's head shows and save it at the highest resolution possible for clear printing. Increase the photo size to make it the right size for your punching bag.

Place a piece of paper in your printer and print a test copy of the face for your punching bag. If you don't like the result, work with the image more and continue testing until you are satisfied.

Place an iron-on transfer sheet in your printer. Print a copy of the face on the iron-on transfer sheet.

Cut out the face, leaving a 1/4-inch border around the edges.

Turn your iron onto the hottest setting and ensure that the steam is turned off.

Place your transfer on the fabric with the blank side up and press hard with the iron. Iron the entire transfer so you get the whole image on your fabric.

Remove the transfer sheet from your fabric and examine your design.

Attach your printed face to the punching bag by sewing the fabric until it fits neatly on the punching bag.

Test your punching bag and adjust the sewing if needed.
