Coloring Book Quilt Ideas

I chose Henna Tattoos for my table runner Coloring Book Quilt.  But any idea goes – wildlife, Celtic, dragons, steam punk.  ArtDesignsStudio.com has over 140 pattern packs full of ideas, ready for you to download today.

 

1. Piece your quilt squares using muslin where you want your coloring Book design.

2.  Press well so that you are tracing on a flat surface.

3. Print one copy of your chosen pattern using your computer printer.

4.  Place your pattern on your light box.  Trace over the outlines with a fine point permanent marking pen of black, gray, or dark brown.

5.  Iron well to set the outline color.

6.  Set up your coloring kit next to your favorite chair in the living room.  Turn on your current ‘binge-watching’ TV program.  Relax, have fun, and color away.

You can use fabric pens, permanent marking pens, crayons, acrylic paint, and of course, fabric dye.  Also consider beads, silk ribbon embroidery, lace, and buttons.

Allow the large-area base coats to dry before you add the detail lines to avoid bleeding.  Set the colors with a hot iron after you are done.

how to paint blue jeans

Step 1:  Pre-wash your jeans to remove any starch or stabilizing chemicals.  Dry the jeans thoroughly before you begin painting.

Step 2:  Download your copies of our Free Doodle Patterns, here on LSIrish.com.  Type doodles into the search box in the header.  We are on numbers 043 to 045 today, which should give you a nice selection of designs to use.

Step 3:  Cut the scrap cardboard to fit inside of the pant’s leg, so that one end of the cardboard comes out the pant’s leg at the bottom.  You can move this cardboard as you work to protect the jeans from color blending through to the other side of the jeans.

Step 4:  With a black fabric marking pen begin doodling … use a light pressure on the pen tip for the smoothest and fullest line coverage.  Mix your main designs with long flowing line breaks and fill patterns.

Step 5:  Use a cork-backed ruler, laid along the inner leg seam line for your measurements for the edge trim design.  The cork will grab the fabric, keeping the ruler in place as you work.  My inner leg trim was worked at 1/2″ measurements.

Step 6: Have fun adding colors to your design.  Fill in some areas with a solid coloring, and in others just add a touch of line work.  Let some areas remain unpainted to allow the blue jean color to become part of your design.

Step 7:  Set your fabric pen colors according to your package directions.  My set only required a hot, steam pressing to become permanent coloring.

Step 8:  Flip your jeans over and do the back side of the leg.

Step 9:  You can create doodle designs on  the 6 1/2″ square white cotton fabric pieces using this same method and add them to your pants.  Fill in some areas of your pattern with the bright colors from your set.  After the patch has been hot, steam ironed it is ready to sew into place, anywhere on your doodle jeans.

What could be more perfect for our Free Doodle Patterns than a pair of blue jeans?  How about the fact that I picked up these brand-new, never worn jeans at my local church thrift shop for $1 !

Step 1:  Pre-wash your jeans to remove any starch or stabilizing chemicals.  Dry the jeans thoroughly before you begin painting.

Step 2:  Download your copies of our Free Doodle Patterns, here on LSIrish.com.  Type doodles into the search box in the header.  We are on numbers 040 to 042 today, which should give you a nice selection of designs to use.

Step 3:  Cut the scrap cardboard to fit inside of the pant’s leg, so that one end of the cardboard comes out the pant’s leg at the bottom.  You can move this cardboard as you work to protect the jeans from color blending through to the other side of the jeans.

Step 4:  With a black fabric marking pen begin doodling … use a light pressure on the pen tip for the smoothest and fullest line coverage.  Mix your main designs with long flowing line breaks and fill patterns.

Step 5:  With the pale-blue fabric pen, fill the areas around your main designs with a tight dot pattern.  Let the space between the dots increase as you move away from the central line of the design.

Step 6:  With the medium-blue fabric pen, re-work the central area of the background with tightly packed dots.

Step 7:  Using a fine-point black fabric pen, work a fill pattern over the pale-blue and medium-blue dot patterns.  I used small, tightly packed circles.

Step 8:  Set your fabric pen colors according to your package directions.  My set only required a hot, steam pressing to become permanent coloring.

Step 9:  Flip your jeans over and do the back side of the leg.

Step 10:  You can create doodle designs on  the 6 1/2″ square white cotton fabric pieces using this same method.  Fill in some areas of your pattern with the bright colors from your set.  After the patch has been hot, steam ironed it is ready to sew into place, anywhere on your doodle jeans.
