I am so in love with this project. I can now have fantastic printed linens on a beer and hot dog budget. I was practising today with an old apron. I bought a stencil from Jo Ann fabrics for .49 It took me about 10 min to paint with the help of my 4 year old.
You will need
Stamp or stencil( If using a stencil spray the back with repositionable adhesive)
Round flat paint brush or sponge brush
Wash and iron your fabric. Don't add fabric softener.
Plan where you want your design. No room for mistakes. If you are doing a large piece it helps to work on a big table or even the floor.
With a old towel(a little padding is good) under your fabric Stamp or stencil. Always work top to bottom.If you are using a stencil dab don't spread. For crisp edges when using a stencil, spray the back with adhesive. I did not use adhesive but it turned out good.
Let it dry completely for 24 hours...this is the hardest step for me.
Iron the back of the fabric. Make sure to use a press cloth.
The possibilities are endless!
