Doodles and Paints on Fabric

This is a fun little pillow I made using one of my doodle drawings.  I used muslin for the background, a waterproof black pen and watered down acrylic craft paints.


After the paint dried...I set it with a warm iron.  Now comes some more fun!  Embellished it with embroidery stitches...just simple French knots and back stitch.  The patchwork border is made up of scraps and I bound the raw edges.  


It seems that I have REAL flowers that are waiting to be planted today...and the weather is going to be sunny and 72 degrees.  So how perfect is that??? Getting an hour or two of sewing in on some secret sewing, then outdoors I go!

Have a beautiful day!
