I made my own polka dot fabric with fabric paint and a pencil eraser for my 1920s dress!

You’ll need:

  • pencil eraser
  • fabric paint
  • pre-washed fabric

Dip the pencil eraser into the fabric paint, and print it onto the fabric. Don’t use too much paint, or the paint may run. I had to re-dip the eraser after each dot – except for the random ‘circles’ which are a second print without re-dipping. Continue printing the fabric in the pattern you want.
