You will need
white duvet cover and pillow case
collection of leaves
sheets of felt
1 Spread the duvet cover or pillowcase out on a large table or on the floor. Put a layer of newspaper between the 2 layers of fabric to make sure that the fabric paint doesn’t seep through to the lower layer.
2 Lightly coat each leaf with the fabric paint, using the sponge, and lay it paint-side down onto the duvet cover. Place a felt sheet over each leaf and go over it with the roller a few times, pressing firmly, to transfer the paint.
3 Continue to print the whole duvet cover, spreading out the various leaves evenly over the area. For best design results, mix different sized and shaped leaves. Let the paint dry thoroughly.
4 Finally, fix the paint so that your new design will withstand washing. This is usually done with a hot iron, but follow the instructions given on the packaging of your specific fabric paint.
Tada and you're done! Simple as that and now you have your own unique bed sheets.
