fabric printing (from the refrigerator)


Bea's teacher is about to have a baby and the class decided that our gift would be a set of custome made onesies decorated by the kids in the class. For Bea's contribution we decided to do a print of an apple. One tiny baby item did not take long but she and Lila had a blast making prints on construction paper when she was done (we switched from fabric paint to regular tempera paint when we moved to paper). We used a sliced apple, the base of a head of celery, and some cut up shapes we made from a kitchen sponge. It ended up being a really easy and fun after school craft project...one we are likely to do again.

That looks wonderful! We're definitely adding this to the kid craft list, especially with the idea of switching to regular paint and paper. Two littles and fabric paint makes me kind of nervous after a while...

Thanks for sharing!

I love apple prints -- and prints from nature! Such a nice job presenting. To the above reader -- it's so much fun, it's worth the patience! (and if you wash it up immediately, there are no stains) I'm glad I found your site. I'll be back! If you're looking for fun weekend Easter projects, I have a few this weekend G at willowday
