A craft which is easy and simple as well as therapeutic.So simple and creative to paint on fabrics anyone can do it.

Why I started painting on fabrics.

I am not a painter or designer but always wanted to do something creative.So to satisfy this craving,at the same time take a break from job monotony,I joined a short course on week end on fabric designing.
At that time I was completely unaware of what fabric designing meant or how it would help me.Having pursued and engaged in crafts like sewing,knitting,stitching and more of such similar crafts I entered into a captivating and enthralling world which I want to share with all.

For this any plain fabric cotton, canvas or polyester would do.If its your first attempt better to try painting on a fabric that is less expensive.Next step is to copy your floral design on the fabric.For this purpose visit link below, I have posted an image that contains floral designs that can be easily copied on the fabric.For beginners I suggest using a single image and later moving onto something more elaborate.
Take a plain fabric of your choice,copy any floral image on it.Floral images may be traced by placing a carbon under the image to be copied and traced by outlining the image.The image will get copied on the canvas or fabric.Another way is to screen printing the image on the fabric.
After that place the fabric in an embroidery ring,tighten the fabric in the ring so that it stretches.This facilitates easy painting.Use fabric paints for the painting project.The painting technique that I have used in my above project,is filling the floral and leaves with colors of your choice and then applying line strokes for a breathtaking effect.Please let the paints dry fully then iron the fabric.
Make a wall hanging by framing the painting or as a patch on pillows,cushions or on dresses,kurtas and the like.Go ahead and enjoy this creativity.

For the above fabric designing the painting on fabric is done by coloring the flowers first and then applying line strokes within them.This technique gives a very beautiful effect.
