No-Flo, a resist that coats fabric that allows you to paint with Dyna-flo to get painterly results and prevent the colors from running in the fabric. After being heat set, no-flow washes out. Dharma, Dick Blick carries it.

Tinting wool. Kool Aid was the method most suggested. black food coloring can be used to mute color.

Texture magic: works with the steam of an iron and even better with a heat gun. Great results with finer fabrics and close stitching.

Collage pieces mounted on canvas. Used gel medium to attach the pieces to the canvas, along with some dyed cheesecloth to 'take' the collage onto the background.

WONDERFUL thread: Signature thread and the big 5500 yd cones are only $1 each.... After you go there click on ebay store in the left-hand side panel... once in the ebay store, type in signature in the little search box on the left-hand side.

Droid Cell Phone Cover from Fabric Postcards

Made a Droid Cover from Fabric Postcards that I had swapped on the internet. Embellished the postcards with ribbons, yarns, a cat charm and added a velcro closure. Used watersoluble pastels on the inside of the cover so they are pink and purple on the non embellished side. They are the perfect size for the cell phone and should keep them without scratches in my daughter's purse!
