With everything that's been going on lately, I haven't really spent any time creating or doing projects. A friends baby shower was an excellent excuse to get back to basics. When I've made shirts in the past, I just used whatever paint I had laying around. This time I decided to try fabric paint.
I started with two designs straight from the Silhouette store. I normally try to create my own, but time was a factor in this project and the designs from the store are super cheap (and cute).
Sweet and simple. My friend is going to have a boy and the theme for his nursery is nautical/orange/navy, so I made sure to use those colors in my designs.
The fabric paint was really wonderful. It went on quickly and smoothly. I was a little upset with the orange I chose. I had no idea I was buying "pearl" aka "glitter." Oops. Not competely fitting for a little boy, but I didn't know it was glitter until I was already painting.
The navy color I got was not pearl, but you can see that it still has a shine to it. The fabric paints worked wonderfully and I will definitely be investing in some more colors for future projects.
