Deborah received some MPC this month to play with (as part of the Design Team). Let’s see what she created!
1. Supplies used:
Paint Brushes (various sizes)
Optional: Graphite paper, Permawriter, Sealant
2.  I decided to use the Multi Purpose Cloth as a center setting with coasters.  Choose a pattern.  Either your own or from an image free design.  I chose a fish and seashells for my design.

3. Cut the cloth to fit your pattern.
4. Transfer your design onto the Multi Purpose Cloth
5. Paint your design.  I used acrylic and Lumiere paints. (Lumiere paints are yummy!)
6. Optional:  Outline your design.  I used a Permawriter to outline my design. (these turned out really cute)
Lastly, have fun with your project and enjoy!
Thanks Deborah for another fun tutorial. I love the MPC as it is so durable, easy to paint or sew, and since it is non-woven you don’t have to hem it! Perfect for a project like this.

    Love what you’ve done with it! The paints look so vibrant! Do the paints soak through to the back? I’ve been wanting to try this MPC, too! Love that the edges don’t need to be finished! Can think of many things I’d like to make with it!

      I haven’t noticed paint bleeding through to the back if I used standard acrylic paints. It is quite durable and easy to use. I’ve made tote bags and book covers and purses and bookmarks, etc. 🙂
