stenciled fabric

I've got another simple and fun projects for Brother and their new Scan N Cut machine!

I love making my own fabric that I can use in my mixed media sewing projects and while there are all kinds of ways to create colorful fabric, my favorite is using one of a kind stencils to create pattern.  

I used my Brother Scan and Cut to create some fun stencils! To begin I created a stencil with triangles.

I used the preloaded triangle shape and repeated it to create a simple geometric pattern.

I used thick paper and cut out the stencil.

Next, I used my Tulip Paint Cannon (non- aerosol spray paint) loaded with fabric dye to repeat my triangle stencil across the surface of my fabric!

I wanted to get a little more detailed with my stencils so I scanned one of my flower doodles into my Brother Scan N Cut and then cut out the design from thick card stock.

I used a mister loaded with fabric dye and repeated my stencil across the surface of my fabric.
