Have you tried stenciling on fabric? Oh, it is so much fun. I had a bunch of reproduction fabrics that I wanted to make something with. Looking at them made me think of Spring. I really love bunnies and decided an easter quilt would be wonderful. I poured through my stenciling books and found this cute couple!!!
It is really easy to do. You can use craft paints. You will need to buy a bottle of Textile Medium (found with the craft paints) and mix your colors and textile medium according to the manufacturers directions. Pre-wash and press your fabric. Place the fabric square over a piece of cardboard so the paint does not bleed onto your work surface. Commence stenciling. Don't overload your brush and use a pouncing action. When you are done, lift your stencil carefully and in an upward motion so that you don't smear the edges.
I really like how this quilt turned out. Give it a try!! It really is easier than you think.
Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by.
