sat down with our freezer paper and fabric paints and went to town.
So much fun.
he used a stencil from his drawing supplies
(I did the drawing and cutting for this one, G did the lovely paint job)
And here's mine - the sequence of drawings was Mike's fine idea.
So thanks again to Maya for introducing me to this easy/fun/addictive craft, and if you haven't tried it - here's what you need:
freezer paper, fabric paints, an exacto-knife and self-healing mat, a pencil, some paint brushes, and some fabric to paint on.
and here's how:
2. cut it out (use your exacto knife and a self-healing mat underneath)
4. paint it (this is the part the kids can do). As far as fabric paints go, I've now used both the Tulip and Jacquard brand fabric paints, and I liked the colors and the quality of the Jacquard far more!!
6. Pull off the stencil and admire your fine work! You're amazing! (Heat-set your paint with an iron again, before wearing or washing your fabric)
