Printing & Painting on Fabric

To Paint on Fabric:

Can't find the perfect fabric for a project? You can make your own! Here's Boo wearing the jumpsuit I made for Week 3 of Project Run and Play.... it's a basic style, I just needed to make the perfect print for it!

The basic jumpsuit consisted of 4 pieces of gray knit:

First, I silk screened several different layers of a butterfly print......

....in dark gray, turquoise and bright yellow (see basic silk screening tutorial here):

Using Setacolor transparent fabric paints....

.....I mixed a diluted hot pink color:

I used a large paint brush to paint areas of the fabric to add dimension:

After the fabric was dry I heat set the entire outfit using an iron to make it permanent:

The inspiration for this outfit was Alexander McQueen.:

But the print and style had to be something more childish and less botanical....whimsical and fun....comfortable and easily washed (Lil Blue Boo criteria!):

You can use either of these techniques to create something for the Lil Blue Boo / Dharma Trading 2011 Design Challenge!
