I am in desperate need of some help! I have been searching everywhere for Fabric with graduation themed prints, with no prevail! I have gone through the list of fabric websites listed on an above listing with out any help or sign of light on the other side. If someone could point me in the right direction I would be forever grateful!

That's a tough one.! How much do you need? Is there any reason you can't make some sticker type stencils, and do it yourself? If you're making a lot, maybe not. But if it's just a yard or two, Why not? If you do, pin it down tight , with cotton to absorb the paint seeping thru. Because if you don't, the puddles will come back on your work in the wrong place. When I used to paint scarves, I had soft bulletin-board type stuff, I'd cover with muslin and stretch the Scarf. The biggest board was for a 45" square. You can even cut stencils out of file folders, or cardboard if you want. But maybe, it sound like a lot of extra work? K

Well I work at a vet's office in the physical therapy department and we have graduations for the dogs that finish rehabilitation and I make them depending on their size little graduation garments...nothing big sometimes it's a bandanna or a bow tie or if mommy really likes that kind of stuff a little coat....but that idea might work I'm just not clear on how to do that...I've never gotten that crafty with fabric I might need more detail. Thanks though!!!!!! That sounds perfect for what I'm doing and I don't need a lot since graduations don't happen that often. Woot I'm excited for a project! Grin Grin Grin Grin

You could take clip art, and cut simple stencils. cut them with the image removed, so you have the paper around the image. Then youcould make cats and dogs with Grad hats stenciled on them. Get fabric paint and markers, Fill in the designs. This could be so much fun for small pieces! And not too costly. You could combine images. I am doing something similar, but with swn on appliques, The process is similar, except I am sewing the design, not painting. So I don't use the reverse stencil.I use my printer to size the images, then glue it to file folder paper. This is what I've been doing all summer, making these stencils. I have been making windsocks. I love the fact that you are doing something special for pets.  K

I can't wait to see pics! I don't have the picture loaded on my puter files, but one of my favorites was the puppy with his birthday hat on. I staged  up the birthday party scene and took his picture with the hat on, and all the goodies on the table. I think it's on a disk from throw away film. You would love it! He really knew it was all about him.... That's why I think what your'e doing is so special. K
