DIY :: Handmade Fabric

A great way to Spring-ify your home is to bring in some bright, colorful fabric. There are so many pretty fabrics out there but if you want to get adventurous, you should try this fabric decorating method I came across on the blog The Art Girl Jackie. She came up with this inventive way  to use sharpies and rubbing alcohol to decorate t-shirts. This could make a great design on any fabric, such as a plain white sheet that could be sewn into stuff like pillows, throws, tablecloths, curtains, etc. The way the dye runs looks a bit like an ikat pattern to me and I think with some experimenting, you could come up with some really great designs. Check out The Art Girl Jackie for instructions and let me know how it turns out if you give it a try!

Happy Handcrafting!
