I had this fantastic idea for making children's bed linen. First I wanted to test my technique and my paints on a smaller project - a child sized tablecloth.
The materials I used included:
- 1 metre square cotton tablecloth. I purchased the cotton and hemmed it myself. It's a bit big on the pictured round table but it fits Otis' weaning table perfectly.
- 1 round hole punch.
- Freezer Paper (this is my first project ever using freezer paper).
- Fabric paints.
- I cut out squares of freezer paper and Caspar punched a hole in the centre of each one.
- In a rough pattern I placed the squares onto the tablecloth (shiny side down) then used a warm iron to adhere them to the fabric.
- Using coloured fabric paint I painted the punched out hole.
- Allow the paint to dry and then iron on the reverse side of the fabric to set the colour. Then peel off the freezer paper.
I was so pleased with the sharp edges on the coloured confetti dots. Bed linen here we come.
