HOW TO Make Your Own Fabric Design/Pattern


Hello everyone! For today’s video I am
going to show you how to make your own fabric print designs in two different
ways. First we are going to use some fabric paint or acrylic paint which is
available in all art and school supplies stores. This isn’t totally a tutorial but
I wanted to show you the process of how I created my own fabric prints using
less materials. This is the best way to customize and personalize anything and
that is great as a gift idea, or you can use this for any future projects you
have in mind. I used a small flat brush since I’m working with a small piece of
cloth. You can definitely explore with this process, paint different designs and
just go crazy with it. I went for a summery theme and painted different types
of leaves, and green is one of my favorite color. Some ideas I wanted to
paint were cute emojis, kawaii animals, flowers, random shapes that’s easy to
paint with less details. Since we are working with paint,
focus on more simple and less detailed designs. TIP#1: If you are not that
comfortable with painting sketch your design lightly onto the fabric using a
pencil. Since acrylic paint is so opaque the pencil marks won’t show to the final
output. TIP#2: Look for reference of the
things you want to draw, there are a lot of sample pictures on the internet you
can easily access, this is so important so you’ll get our design ideas that you really want. TIP#3: Have fun and just
enjoy painting! Oh and if you are using more than two colors, make sure that the paint
dries first before layering more paint to prevent mixing the colors and ruining
the design. Not unless you’re aiming for an abstract design
I love abstract. Finally here’s a video idea of a DIY I made that you can use
this fabric for, make sure to check it out after watching this video. I’ll put a
link above or check it on the description box below If you don’t have any paints available
I’m going to show you how to use fabric crayons or just use your regular crayons.
Just keep in mind that regular crayons the print tend to fade quickly compared to
the ones designed for fabric printing. I’ve tried both and still works the same. 🙂 My tips for this one is almost the same
using paints the difference and some additional inputs are; TIP#1:
Since I only have limited colors this is pretty basic use a light hand to create
lighter shades and go over the lines you want to have darker shades with heavy
hands. With these you can create depth and layers with your design utilizing
what colors you have. You can also create gradients when mixing two
different colors, just like what I did with the flower design. Just keep on
blending until you are satisfied with it. TIP#2: Since fabrics are knitted
threads it has text ures that crayons tend to have
streak lines or uneven colors. To prevent this, draw and color in one
direction to achieve a clean and solid shape. TIP#3: Tug or pull the fabric
or use some weights to prevent it from wrinkling.This will make it easier for you
to draw without disturbing the surface of the cloth. I didn’t do this since I
am filming, we have a little bit of struggle right there but you know it’s
worth it. The final step to seal your design is to
iron the fabric, this way you are helping the paint and the wax stick to the
fabric much longer. Use a piece of wax paper on top before pressing your iron
on medium heat. The wax paper will prepare your fabric
from burning and ruining your design. Finally just go crazy and be creative
with your design, I hope you’ll try designing your very own fabric print.
Please do. ^_^ ‘Coz it’s very relaxing and satisfying to do. If you have additional
tips please leave a comment below. I really appreciate it a lot!
Tag me videos or pictures of your work if you try some of the DIYs I made. That’s
it guys! Have fun, enjoy more art, and stay creative! I’ll see you in my next one ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
