Here’s a cool idea for adding a polka dot pattern to a garment. M&J Blog shows how you can use fabric dye and a pencil eraser to make polka dots on fabric. True, it’s time consuming, so you’d probably only want to do this on portions of a garment. But it’s nearly impossible to find print and solid fabrics that with perfectly matched colors, so this would be a good way to make a coordinating accent print for a project. I wonder what other shapes you could use? Go to M&J Blog to get the tute.
