Watercolor Fabric

The grandgirls and I tried a little fabric dyeing experiment last week.  We mixed a bit of regular fabric paint into a cup of water and then painted it onto wet fabric with sponge brushes.  As you can see, we ended up with some very pretty pink and purple pastel fabrics!

Oh what fun. Adorable creations. I painted Winnie the Poohs pal Tigger on a t-shirt once. Forgot to "set" the paint. After I washed it, he was "jumping", or at least, that is how I explained the runs. LOL I haven[t used fabric paint since.
