I rarely make patriotic art but I wanted to make pinwheels using fabric and paint and since the 4th of July is approaching this turned out to be one of those rare occasions.
I reached for the Terial Magic spray stabilizer. It worked great, making the fabric behave like paper. Here is the finished piece and the step I took to make the pinwheels…
I started by treating white fabric with Terial Magic and cutting three inch squares.
I can imagine these being painted for many occasions or used to decorate a room. They would be fun to make with kids and glue could be used instead of needle and thread.
If you make fabric pinwheels I love to see your creations!
Oh my, Ann, you make it seem so easy. However, I’ll get my pinwheels at the dollar store as I know that it would be a day’s work for me to make them. I do need to get some Terial Magic.
Thanks, Joanna. The pinwheels are really simple, or I wouldn’t make them! If/when you do get Terial Magic I hope you’ll try it on organza and silk and let me know what you think about it.
I have a birthday coming up. Maybe I could ask for some, though I expect a panicked look will cross my husband’s face.
