We all know that I have a serious love affair with Sharpie’s®, I just can’t help myself! One of the things I love is what you can do on fabric with the little sticks of luscious color! A little Sharpie® and some alcohol and your fabric will never, ever be the same.
Here is a tote bag I made using:
Doilies (not Grandma’s but the kind you buy in the craft store)
A tote bag
Needle & Thread or Fabri-Tac
Darice Rhinestone Setter
Choose plain cotton doilies.
Color them with your Sharpie® markers. You might want to use older markers as coloring on the doily will make the tip of your marker pretty rough.
Color them all!
Time for the alcohol. Just regular old rubbing acohol and an eye dropper for this project.
Slowly drop alcohol on the colored doilies until the color starts to run.
Too much alcohol might possibly wash the color out too much so just do a few drops at a time.
Place the dried doilies on your tote bag in a pleasing arrangement and either sew down with needle and thread or use Fabri-Tac for a quicker finish. (I used Fabri-Tac and it worked just fine!) Go back, after the glue dries if you used it, and add rhinestones with the rhinestone setter.
Ta-Da!! LOVE IT!
