Sweater Jazz!

Sweater Collage

I got this plain gray sweater on sale at Target, and jazzed it up a bit with fabric paint. It was fun and easy!

Here’s the How-To!

Materials:

-Sweater

-Fabric Paint

-Paint Brush/paint pot

-Cardboard sheet

-String

-Annoying cat

Step 1

Slide the cardboard sheet into the sweater. This gives you a smooth, hard working surface, and ensures that no paint bleeds through to the back of the sweater. Lay out your piece of string the way you want your design to look.

Kiss and cuddle your cat until she gets fed up and lets you get back to work.

Squirt some of your fabric paint onto another surface, and using a small paintbrush, trace your pen-line with the paint.
