This project allows you to play around with patterns for a quarter of the cost!

Things you need: 

  • Fabric of your choice (Linen and quilting cotton works well!)
  • Fabric paint or acrylic craft paint 
  • Old toilet paper or paper towel rolls 
  • Old newspaper (To prevent your paint from bleeding onto furniture) 
  • Flat dish

  • Pour a good amount of paint into a flat dish to help you coat the bottom of your toilet paper roll easily. 
  • Start dipping and stamping in rows (or any pattern you like). You can mark your fabric using a pencil to make sure your lines are straight and even, too. 
  • Let the paint dry overnight before using it or displaying your masterpiece. 

RL Tip: If you want to switch colors, make sure you use a different roll or the other end of the one you're using to avoid muddy results.
