Paint Therapy

Today, I have spent a lovely day painting fabric with a group of friends and as ever have created a lot of things that are work in progress!

I started off by trying out a heart shaped Indian print blocks and doily stencils, which I rather liked. The doily design would make lovely blocks for patchwork.

I then drew an image of a swallow on to freezer paper and painted images with fabric paint. I have lots of ideas for finishing off these two birds

And for this swallow I painted it with fabric transfer paint and ironed it on to polyester cotton fabric. I plan to emphasise the tattoo design with a waterproof ink pen and embellish with stitch and beads – one day!
