3 Easy DIY Fabric-Printing Styles

Ever since Remodelista contributor Izabella posted about Ariele Alasko’s hand-stamped upholstered chair, she’s been on the lookout for more DIY fabric-printing ideas. Naturally, she was excited to come across Finnish photographer Kreetta’s blog Gretchen Gretchen. Over a three day creative streak, she tackled three easy DIY fabric-printing techniques.†Here, she shows her materials and results.

Photos by Kreetta†Jšrvenpšš†of†Gretchen Gretchen.

Above: Starting with her trusty wooden rolling pin, she attached cut-out dots made of adhesive plastic foam.

Above: Kreetta rolled the pin over an old duvet cover that already had a romantic pattern. The new print was inspired by a pearl necklace.

Above:†On day two, Kreetta carved a wooden block into an arrow pattern.

Above: She used black ink for color.

Above: Lastly, Kreetta†used a wooden block to which she glued craft foam cut into dots of different sizes.

Above: She used old napkins and printed dots in four different colors. For the next go-around Kreetta plans to use linoleum and a carving set.

It's a great idea. Years ago I tried this out for a small project and made a large bulletin board for myself. It was a project so I was choosing something pretty easy to try it on.
You would need to search for the deatils or talk to someone maybe at a craft or sewing store. Some times they have classes.
