MY DIY | Mudcloth print chair
This week is a crazy one, I have been working on a video shoot in Brooklyn for the last three days with Refinery29, (14 hours days in heels, eeeek! Foot massage please?). The project is super fun and colorful (more on ispydiy snapchat), and I can’t wait to show you the finals! In the meantime, I had to share how my DIY mudcloth print chair turned out. As I mentioned yesterday, creating the traditional fabric is an involved process, so I decided to take a $3 director’s chair that I thrifted, and try using a bleach pen to create a pattern on the canvas. I started by removing the seat/back from the chair and dying them with permanent black fabric dye, once it’s dried I drew on the pattern using a bleach pen. I love how it turned out and am going to try out the technique on some pillows next…perfect for my apt! Steps after the break…

What you need:
What to do:
Plot out your pattern on the material by marking with pencil or freehand it (like I did!)
Trace your pattern with a bleach pen.
Let sit overnight.
When dry, wash off the excess bleach to reveal your pattern. Done!
