Ready to dive into Fall fashion but can’t fully commit to buying whole pieces in the latest, trendy colors? Here’s a simple solution! Turn a “safe” colored, versatile piece into a showcase for the season by adding a spray-dyed applique to the lapel. I’m really into purple for this season, so I took a plain, grey cardigan and some of the new Tulip Fabric Spray Paints, and got to work. Here’s how!
- Place lace motif appliques on a piece of cardboard or newspaper. Spray liberally with Fabric Spray Paint until saturated. Let dry.
- Using a wet paper towel, wipe the dye off of any sequin or beads.
- Pin dyed appliques onto desired spot of cardigan. Hand sew in place.
