DIY Fabric Printing

These DIY(s) were inspired by a wide range of African prints and since fashionista.com did a post on  the upcoming African designers I thought this would be a perfect time to also share some of those designers with you all that I loved. 

Omaka Osakwe

Kezia Frederick

William Okpo

The following DIY(s) were mainly inspired by these bold prints which made me want to do some fabric printing, an easy way to update those solids and pastels for the upcoming spring/summer season.

Stuff you need:
Fabric paint
Basically anything you can use to print. I used a cotton bud, a felt butterfly and a homemade cardboard stamp.


Use your printing supplies and fabric paint to print on whatever fabric.




It's fun and looks great.

I also love the bunny design, it is more casual than the other design but still they are so cute and it will just depend on how you carry your dress especially for women who are fashionable.
