Pretty Paisleys

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Today, I am taking Mod to a quieter level. Oh, paisleys are still quite retro, but I made these in more subdued tones for those of you who do not want to scream, "I loved the 70s!"

This paisley project is on a cardigan sweater, but as usual, select the garment that suites you best.

You need:

  • Sparkle 21: Gold Sparkle, Silver Sparkle, Night Sparkle
  • Black cardigan sweater
  • Printed pattern
  • Chalk pencil
  • Straight pin
Try this:

1. Print pattern. Draw over pattern lines with chalk pencil. Turn chalk side down on cardigan. Rub back of paper to transfer pattern lines. Transfer as many paisleys as desired.

2. Use Sparkle 21 to cover pattern lines and dots on sweater.

3. To make leaves inside paisley, place straight pin in center of dot and drag outward to form a point.

4. Add big dots outside of paisleys as desired.

Add a little more color if you like it, otherwise, these paisleys have an elegant (but still mod) look.

Glitter on!
