So, today was not a great day. I meant to post and introduce you to my new partner for CWTS, but some things got in the way. And by “some things”, I mean “a (still wrapped) root beer float ice cream bar and an Asian pear”. And by “way”, I mean “toilet”.
When I was making my Valentine’s Day Bunting (thanks for the love, btw), I picked up some fabric paint. This fabric paint, to be exact.
See how right in the middle of the label it says “Red Velveteen”?
You might think that’s just the name of the color (like I did), but you’d be wrong. And, there’s nothing on the label either that would tip you off to the magic you are about to unleash. The Tulip website is the only place that even hints at the awesome.
The paint goes on normally, but when you hold your iron a few inches above it and hit it with a burst of steam?
Faux velvety magic.
Can you see how it puffs up just a little higher than the fabric?
I’ve already been back to the store for more colors. I’ve got big plans for the black.
See you tomorrow. Hopefully it’s a better day?
