I paid a lot for these terribly faded cushions, so I couldn’t bring myself to toss them. I had bought a couple of bandanas to sew together for a cover, but wasn’t crazy about that idea.
Then I thought, “fabric paint!” and wished somebody made spray
fabric paint. I found this at Walmart (I love that Rice Freeman-Zachery
calls it the Dreaded Walmart!) It came in a pack of three colors (black and gold, too) and was $14.97. Not cheap, but I have a use for the black, and maybe the gold, too.
I sprayed and used a foam brush to even it out.
Not a bad “before and after,” huh?
AND!!!, the paint is made in America!!!!
Here’s my first art quilt top. Now to embellish!
In fact, they’re having another one right now. I bought these books in the spring. I’ll be glad when the Dover Pictura site is up and running. I hope I’ll be able to buy the images I want without buying a whole book. I already have a flash drive with a “Dover Images” file so I’m ready when they are.
Of course, I had to round out my order to get free shipping. I added a few items for my grandson, Peter James:
Happy Independence Day, everybody! Do something independent! This reminds me of PJ singing, “You got a fwend in me,” to the top of his lungs!
