Finally I get to post about some of my Christmas present creations! My mom loves PJ sets, so I was very excited to make these for her for Christmas. The pattern is BurdaStyle's Jane. As I was looking through my fabric stash to decide what to make them in, I came across this white rayon and decided to try something new..and I created my own print (click through the jump to see how)! I'm really happy with the way they turned out, and they fit her perfectly!! I also discovered that I have a new love for hand-printed textiles - more on this to come!
|For full tutorial on how I made the print.. click through the jump!|
- fabric (mine is 100% rayon - white)
- fabric dye
- fabric paint
- rubber stamp
TIME: I did this in several sittings, but I would say its probably a full days project.
|Choose a fabric and dye color. It is good to research the fabric's dye capabilities as well as carefully read the instructions on the dye package.|
|Follow the instructions on the package to dye the fabric. I chose to use the bucket technique.|
|Once fabric is washed and dried, Iron it out. I chose to cut out my pattern pieces here, since the garment I was making is quite small, as is the stamp I chose.|
|Pour out some paint onto a plate or palate, using your sponge, dab a generous amount of paint onto the stamp, making sure it is fully covered.|
|Do some practice stamps on a scrap of fabric to get your paint ratio and stamp pressure just right. These were obviously not what I was aiming for.|
|This was more like it.|
|When finished, iron the pieces slowly on both sides to set the paint.|
|Sew together your pieces and admire your beautiful work!|
