Summer weather is the perfect time to head outside and try out some large scale projects. Lots of fabric dyeing techniques require tons of space and fresh air to help dry your creation. So take advantage of the lovely summer weather and try a new technique!
Though you’re painting the fabric rather than dyeing with this technique, the result is still super fun and you can definitely do this project outside. This is a great family project because every age group can enjoy it. It could also be really fun on a pillowcase for a slumber party.
