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.

Disclaimer: I am a paid consultant for Brother International Corporation and have received a ScanNCut from Brother to evaluate. However, the opinions expressed are entirely my own and based on my use of the product.

Please note that I am VERY picky about the the things I share on my blog. I only work with companies and products that I actually use in my own art and craft projects :)

This is such a wonderful idea! I had a couple of questions. First, what kind of fabric are you using? Second, I'm intrigued by the Scan n Cut, but I'm afraid it would be complicated to use. Any comment on the difficulty (or ease) of the Sca n Cut? Thanks!

I love this! Thank you sharing! I'm intrigues by the ScanNCut. What kind of material can you cut with it? Have you tried cutting acetate or other thin plastic to make your own stencils? Please share your experience with us! Thank you!
