I am always looking for more cute things for my kitchen. I love the imperfect polka dot pattern. I really enjoy printing, stamping and dying fabrics. It's an obsessions and I can't wait to share it with you!Polka dot stepsThis technique only takes two easy steps... 1. Gather 3 things- QTips, Martha Stewart Craft Paint (works on all surfaces), and a textile to print on. 2. Dip your QTip in paint and press it down on your fabric. For every coat of paint you can make 4-6 dots, they will get lighter as you go, which adds charm to the finished piece! Repeat until the entire surface is covered. This can be time consuming, so it's a great project for a movie night or phone conversation! Polka dot technique 2If you love the idea of handprinting your own textiles, you're in luck!
