When my children were young I would get work where I could or work from home, mainly selling or making clothes at home for manufacturers.
I came across a company from America called Tri Chem, I went to there party plans and bought some paints.
I joined as a representative and organised my own parties, that is how I increased my own stock.
I loved demonstrating techniques and the good quality product I was promoting. I still today have my paints and still make items and paint them, still the same.
I have made for family, special occassions, school fetes, I started in 1976 and I still love them, they have changed in packaging but are still a good product
There are transfers (iron on) to use for the pictures, or you can free draw
I purchased a pen to trace the pictures I wanted her with the tele tubbies
I was then asked to make for special occassions, babies born, anniversaries, weddings, christenings, graduations
My pillow range small and large pillow, kapok filled and frill edges, a great gift that can be kept forever.
I also made some cot covers, doll cot covers, see below
I made a lot of T shirts and dress with the painting on, barbie doll clothes had painted features on I taught my children how to make christmas gifts and decorations with them,
I also painted on glass and vases and such like. well worth investing in some paints.
I also used them to put my childrens names in their clothes for school, never washed off. Hope you like
Morning all, it is about 3am here in UK and I have decided to add some of my Hand Painted Fabric Pillows, they are either 15″ x 15″ in size or 20″ x 20″ so both squares.
I have added kalpoc to the inners and lace edge to finish. These are closed pillows but can be washed as Paint is washable. I have made many of these items during the last 25 years, I came across the product many years ago and even sold the paint and trained others to use it.
I plan to make removable covers in my next collection with maybe fold over pillow cases painted to enable more and easy cleaning options
I like to make for many occasions, having given away many myself to my family and friends………….
Hope you like them, please give feedback or suggestions……………
