I found this skirt in while thrifting in South Carolina several years ago. It's almost gotten purged on numerous occasions, but I always figured, hey, can't hurt to have an extra basic (boring) white skirt. And then it finally occurred to me that OH YES, it doesn't have to be just a boring white skirt.
I started using fabric paints very recently with doing little turkey hand print shirts at Thanksgiving time and suddenly I want t use them all the time. I mean, who knew? Paint that goes on fabric! Miraculous.
This little project was my favorite kind - a world of difference in 10 minutes or less. Now that is gratifying.
1. Take a potato and cut your desired shape into it (I chose a triangle). Pat it dry with a napkin. I've also used a sweet potato which I think I may prefer because it's not quite as mushy.
2. Squirt out some fabric paint onto a magazine or in container (fennel container optional) and dip your shape in it.
3. Print away on your $3 thrifted skirt. I suppose you could measure and/or use more paint to ensure all the triangles are totally filled in, but I liked the slightly uneven look to it.
4. Be excited that for once, your tendency to throw everything away didn't prevail because now you have an awesome new skirt.
