this project may be a tad bit beyond my 4 yr old... at least the dripping of the alcohol onto the fabric.  coloring the fabric, however wasnt.. he just soaked one spot causing the ink to not spread very well.. but eh, I can let him draw on fabric and I'll do the driping LOL

One tip was to use a spray bottle for the alcohol.  Your 4-year old might not care if you just do the dripping.  Wink  It takes a moment for all the colors to swirl and bleed.  We found that it was boring to use only one color so we used combinations of colors instead.

mm spray bottle may have been easier for him.. we could count how many sprays we need to get our desired effect...  Great idea!


What fun!  The Sharpie people just contacted me about this project on my blog!  This makes me wonder how the Sharpie people even know about my blog.... 



thats sweet!  I take it was good feedback from them?  how exciting, maybe they'll give you a life times suply of sharpies!

that's neat, does it hang on the wall, then you stick a flower in it?  if that's the idea, I think it's pretty neat, and you need to make a set of 3... then trade me Smiley

that's bloody neat! I might have to do this with my 4 yr old... I bet he'd get a kick out of it.... going to dig up the scrap muslin and the sharpie markers as soon as I know the baby is napping!

I've realized I do have something bought that my partner would like... So i'm nearly done.  Just the one bonus little thing to make yet and I'm finished.  I just hope it gets here soon...  But the etsy merchant sent all of 3 hours after I purchased it!  which totally rocks, so it should be here by the weekend!

those are some nice bags!  the only thing I'm not to much a fan of is the thick, uh... bias tape.. binding, the stuff around the edges.  But I like the shape and all the fabrics and the size too.  They'd fit a good few diapers a carry size box of wipes... you could also pull these off as diaper bags for moms who hate the typical baby looking diaper bag Smiley

this is brilliant.. why did I look?  i can whip up all sorts of things in 1 hour.  Felt cell phone covers, pair of crochet potholders, felt headband, felt bracelet, felt felt felt ..... so many things to be felted.... 4 days until sign ups end... dang it... I think I'm nuts... with everything on plate already.... lets see what happens in the next 4 days.....  If it doesn't fly for me, I'm in for round 2, hopefully some time in Febuary? when i'm back into crafting mood after xmas and baby?  that'd be perfect Smiley

i was hoping to join to... but with things as they've ben for the past 3 weeks, I've been in bed when the boys are, so no time to dye and felt here.. I'm so in for next round and am sad I'm missing out on these great things!  hope everyone gets what they were hoping for!

mmmm wish I had this recipe last week!!  I ended up composting 5 pears because I had to many to just eat. (silly children.. they dislike pears, apparently...)  I will bookmark this for the next time pears go on sale Smiley
