Lemon Stamped Fabric


 What You'll Need:

 Let's Do This!

Step 1:

A) Cut a lemon and an orange in half. 

B) Squeeze some of the juice from the fruit. 

C) Use a knife to remove some of the flesh in the segments and expose the walls. Try to keep the walls intact, as that will help with creating a more detailed print.  

Step 2:

A) Use a paint brush to apply a thick coat of paint to the fruit. 

B) Press the fruit onto the fabric. Tip: Protect the surface you are working on. The paint may bleed through the fabric. 

C) Lift the fruit to reveal your print. 

D) Touch up any missing spots with a paint brush and paint.  

Step 3:

Stamp a few lemons in a row and then add an orange. Make your own pattern! Let dry.

Step 4:

Acrylic paint is permanent once dried. Use an iron on a cotton setting to heat-set your fabric pattern.
