I was looking through my pictures getting ready to write a post today, when I ran across photos I had taken several months ago for a tutorial on dyeing fabric with ink.
I dyed the fabric for The Printed Fabric Bee challenge.
On this post I talked about the stencil I made from a plastic fern, and said I’d blog about dyeing the fabric at a later date.
For this project, I used white fabric with a pattern. I wanted a fast and easy way to color it green so I chose Tsukineko All Purpose inks. If you’re not familiar with them, they are a washable permanent craft ink that won’t change the hand of the fabric.
So let’s get started. Moisten the fabric. I used a spray bottle with water that is always sitting on my table in my studio.
Place the wet fabric in a ziploc bag.
Since I wanted to make the fabric green, I chose blue and yellow inks.
Once I thought I had enough ink on the fabric, I scrunched it with the goal of making the color somewhat even.
Once I was happy with the color, I took it out of the bag, let it dry, and ironed it.
That’s all there is to it. If you’re looking for a fast way to color you fabric, try ink! Thanks for dropping by.
