Put your own personal touch in this quilting fabric. This DIY batik fabric project isn’t just for quilts. Frame several designs and hang them on the wall. I would love for my kids to make some designs for me. Thanks to Suzy’s Artsy-Craftsy Sitcom for the colorful and creative idea.
This is a great way to make your own brightly colored batik fabric using crayons! A vintage craft come to life!
I’m always looking through my vintage craft magazines for fresh ideas, and every now and then I pick one and run with it. As a quilter, I’ve always had a preference for batik fabrics. I love the vibrant colors! Well, if you have been following my blog for any time, you probably already know that I love me some color. And the idea of using a resist to block color in areas is something that I love doing with my Ukrainian eggs. So, a mix of color and resist dyeing with crayons just seemed right up my alley.
Now before I go any further, I’m betting there was probably an easier way to do this. But I will tell you how I did it, using my instructions that came from a 1956 Workbasket magazine and a few edits thrown in from me when I ran across some minor roadblocks.
