Fun New Project! – DIY Printed Fabric

So today I tried playing with fabric paint and fabric. Both pieces are super basic, and neither are perfect, but it was so much fun! I actually learned a lot!

Here’s what I did:

It was so easy to do! This was was just a rubber stamp and paint on some fabric (which was a scrap piece of lightweight canvas). I used a sponge to apply the paint to the stamp, as to not get my stamp all yucky. It was incredibly simple and I will be buying more stamps.

This one was just a circular sponge and a piece of old sheet (remember those pants I made out of sheets? This was a scrap from that sheet). It didn’t turn out quite how I was expecting, but I’ll definitely use it for something. It’s pretty interesting.

New Steampunk Inspired Hoodie!

Okay! I finally was able to get picture of my hoodie (thanks to my wonderful fiance)!  I didn’t get a ton of pictures of the process, but I did get a few. I made the pattern out of tissue paper, and went from there! This was definitely an experiment  but I think it turned out pretty well! I took quite a few pictures of the finished product, so you can see all of the angles. This is definitely something you could wear everyday or use in a steampunk outfit, by adding an under bust corset, a cute skirt and a few lovely accessories.  As you will see, I had a couple of helpers in this process! Isis (the little tuxedo kitty), enjoyed laying on the fabric while I was trying to lay it out. Leo (the black cat) was playing with the tissue paper I used to make the pattern, and Ava (the puppy) had a nice nap laying on the fabric pile. I hope you like it! Please let me know what you think!
