And Today’s Mystery Project of the Month Was….

Painting on fabric!  No one had any idea what this month’s mystery project was going to be.  With “one half yard of white, washed and ironed (no starch) fabric” being the only item on the supply list, everyone seemed quite perplexed in trying to figure out what we would be doing today!  Well, it didn’t take long for Debbie to bring everyone up to speed, sharing a variety of completed projects she had previously done with fabric paint.

She brought to class, a wide selection of coloring books, as well as iron on transfers, in order to allow everyone to find a picture they would be tracing onto the fabric.

After pictures were selected, class participants traced their pictures onto the fabric with pencil, then ironed their fabric onto freezer paper in order to stabilize the fabric.

It was at this point, the class participants began filling in their artwork with color.

At times, the room was completely hushed as class participants focused on their work at hand.  It was such a different experience for everyone!  Some found it challenging, some found it relaxing and peaceful but everyone thoroughly enjoyed their time spent together on a beautiful and sunny Saturday, learning another way to add depth and dimension to their quilting and/or crafting portfolio!  Until next time!
