DIY printed tote bag using the sun
DIY printed tote bag using light-sensitive Inkodye and a stencil cut from freezer paper. "Inkodye is a water-based dye that works on natural materials like fabric and wood, and develops its color in the sun. It dyes fabrics permanently, and I like it better than fabric paint since it soaks into the fabric and keeps it soft and flexible, unlike fabric paints that can be stiff and sit on the surface of a textile. Plus, it's really fun watching the color develop!" text & image via How About Orange
