This week we recovered a lampshade with Mont Marte Signature Fabric Paints and customized a fun beach tote with the Mont Marte Signature Fabric Art Set. Today, I’m showing you how to ‘bake someone happy’ with the Mont Marte Fabric Paint Sticks. To make things easy, we’ll also be using Gütermann Thread and an adult-sized Fabric Fun Apron for Embellishment. There’s a free pattern download, so you don’t even have to sketch out a drawing for this one.
- sketchbook and sketching pencil
- If you don’t want to draw, download the free Bake Someone Happy design
- blue wash out marker
- light box or light source
- paint sticks or markers
- polyester (bobbin) and 100% cotton thread (top threading)
- Fabric Fun Apron for Embellishment or a premade apron of your choice (light colored so tracing is easy)
- masking tape
- Draw out a design of your choice or download the free PDF drawing for the Bake someone Happy
2. Place the drawing on a light source or light box, and use masking tape to keep it in place.
3. Using a ruler, place the lightbox and design under the apron against the wrong side 3½” from the top and center.
4. Draw the design onto the apron with a blue washout marker.
5. Color within the design lines with the fabric paint sticks.
6. Once the design is all colored in, free motion stitch around the design as we did in Wednesday’s post for Free motion stitching on a DIY lampshade cover – Part 3, to complete it. The word ‘someone’ is completely free motion stitched. Where there is a black line, stitch it out and fill in the blank areas with the colors of your choice.
We finished all of our projects for this week – the DIY Lampshade Recover
The project, the cute Beach Tote and now a Bake someone Happy apron with Mont Marte Signature Fabric Paint, Art Set and Paint Sticks. Don’t forget to look for these products shortly at your local art supply or quilt shop. You can create fabric to make DIY fashion and homewares with Mont Marte. Have a great weekend; maybe you’ll have time to bake someone happy!
