    A zendoodle on my sweatshirt

    Thought I'd try doing this and I'm very happy with how it came out. I did heat set the ink and fabric paint so I'm hopeful it will be permanent. I like including all the positive thoughts and ideas in the doodles!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    It looks great! Was it challenging to do that on the soft fabric? Did you stablize it in any way?

    So cute, Linda. I sent this on to a friend that does Zengangles. She paints directly on the fabric and then makes it into dolls....Did you do yours directly on the sweatshirt or did you add it on from another fabric?

    I did this directly onto the sweatshirt, and I used a large square of cardboard (pizza box lid) to hold the fabric taut. I used pigma pens and fabric paint markers, which I then heat set.

    Beautiful. Wash it inside out to protect the ink. I would say by hand but I never wash anything by hand.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.
