I saw this neat idea for painting fabric over at The Girl Creative. So I decided to try it out with the naughties a couple weeks ago. I cut out some dresses but before I sewed them up I had the girls paint the fabric.
I wasn’t sure how this would work out so I just used the colors I had on hand (Gryffindor colors anyone?). But fabric paint is pretty cheap and you only need a little for this so if I decide to brave it again I’d probably buy pinks and purples and blue yeah that would be fun.
All I did was use fabric paint diluted with water so it was kind of the consistency of water color paint. I’m really glad they were nakes because even then L somehow got paint on her panties (did she sit on the brush?) and T managed to flick paint all up her legs and on my porch -even though the paint was on the grass when they were allowed near it. Umm yeah.
It was cool and the girls were really proud of their dresses so I think it was worth the headache of having little ones paint.
It was interesting because the paint kind of bled on the yellow fabric but on the white fabric it held it’s shape a lot better. Fabric paint comes in so many colors and really anything you can sew can use custom fabric and I bet older kids could even paint some cool images.
