Easy Messy Handprinted Polka Dots

Polka dot technique 1It's no secret that I love polka dots! Patterned textiles are taking over my closet and my home! Today I want to teach you how to make your own messy polka dot tea towel. I am always looking for more cute things for my kitchen. I love the imperfect polka dot pattern. I really enjoy printing, stamping and dying fabrics. It's an obsessions and I can't wait to share it with you!Polka dot stepsThis technique only takes two easy steps… 1. Gather 3 things- QTips, Martha Stewart Craft Paint (works on all surfaces), and a textile to print on. 2. Dip your QTip in paint and press it down on your fabric. For every coat of paint you can make 4-6 dots, they will get lighter as you go, which adds charm to the finished piece! Repeat until the entire surface is covered. This can be time consuming, so it's a great project for a movie night or phone conversation! Polka dot technique 2If you love the idea of handprinting your own textiles, you're in luck! This month I am sharing about a dozen different ways to print your own fabric! Techniques will range from super simple (like this one) to more advanced and technical. The best part about printing your own fabric is having a piece of clothing or decor that is one of a kind! I hope you have a wonderful day. xo. elsie

  • I have plain boring white napkins at home that would be perfect for this kind of project. I never thought about using a q-tip!

  • Hi! I was wondering if putting these in the washer would make the paint come off? I am new to the DIY world and cannot(!) wait to try this out!

  • Hi! I was wondering if you can wash these or if the paint will wash off? Lovely!

  • I heard you have interns who make all the projects for you. You should give them credit for their work!

  • That’s really creative. I love your work, I used to take art classes and it helped but in the end I figured that it really was just going to be a hobby for me but that’s fine. I can still appreciate art. 🙂

  • I thought you were a fun lviong guy. You turned out to be an ultra-shy boy. These are the places are built and operated for enjoy. I mean you don’t have to be rude to girls but you must appreciate their talents and art.Once you enter, you can’t just feel shy and drink non-alcholic juices. Act like a man. I mean remember India and Apsaras! Even gods like beautiful girls dancing around them. They too enjoy. You being a mere human being afraid of enjoying and feel shy! Go to hell.

Used to go early morning and then fog descended on Delhi, and with that clouded my efforts as well )
