Next, I used small pieces of tape to cover the areas where I did not want paint.
Using a paint brush I filled in the spaces. I peeled off the tape, let it dry 24 hours and then set the paint with an iron. Next up I'd like to try freezer paper stencils.
Another really fun way to transform fabric is to use fabric dye. I really wanted to try an ombre effect on cotton fabric, so I purchased some navy colored fiber-reactive dye and followed these instructions from Martha Stewart and these from Dharma Trading. There is a fair bit of information out on the internet about fabric dyeing and ombre dyeing and it seems to take some trial and error.
I love how the fabric turned out, so subtle and beautiful, perfect for making a little clutch or bag.
