I remember when fabric pens were all the rage for kids. We’d decorate our t-shirts with designs so horrible our mums would bin the top and pretend it got lost instead of incurring the embarrassment of allowing us out in it. That was just my mum then? Really?!
I digress. While the memories faded, the fun hasn’t. It still feels a bit decadently naughty to draw all over fabric, and it’s still fun to make an item feel it’s your own by personalising it with a bit of pen.
Here are two homemade cushions to which I added a shot of colour with fabric markers. The designs, both from Ikea, are perfect for colouring and I love that it reminds me of colouring in books (I was naughty, I went over the lines. And I liked it.)
Hmm, what next? Pillow cases? Totes? Na, the tea towels are gonna get it!
