some seriously hands on ladies!
I am loving all the hand painted fabric I have been seeing in Blogland. Especially the ikat projects. That pattern is so forgiving, and any bleeding of the paint actually accentuates the look, making it almost foolproof. Elizabeth at The Mustard Ceiling (above) just revealed her latest hand painted ikat fabric, and I was inspired to do a montage of recent great ikat projects. So here they are...


Amber Interiors'  orange stenciled drapes...



 Our Fifth House's blue panels...


And Heidi from A Thousand Laughing Starfish's pink  shade...



Cristin from Simplified Bee made the beautiful block printed tablecloth (and she did the gorgeous arrangements too!)...


Have you painted some ikat lately? If so please e-mail a photo and a link so I can add you to the montage : danika@danikaherrick.com

I, too, am so impressed Elizabeth's ikat fabric for her DR chairs!! Love the pattern and color. I'm currently working on a stencil project and hope to reveal next week!! Also, thanks for your kind comment today! It's never easy being vulnerable!

All of these look sooo professional! I love them all!

Heidi said...

Thanks for including me hun! Pink ikat is the perfect way to wake up in the mornings :) The other examples are gorgeous.

Sidenote: The hand painted (dyed) fabrics you did for your kitchen seats- How are those holding up? I'm thinking about tackling a similar project but am afraid guests wearing white pants will leave my house with trousers of a different hue after sitting at my table. I'd love to hear how you set yours!

Heidi,
The cushions have held up great. I never set mine and they haven't bled. I did hit them with scotch guard because my three year old got craisins mashed into one. ( Iwashed it in cold water and air dried it for fear the fabric would shrink. They say you can set it with dryer or iron. Dye-na-flow is the bomb!

Thanks for including my curtain panels! The Mustard Ceiling's fabric via her own diy stencil is so good! I'm actually featuring her dining chairs on my blog tomorrow!
