How I Used Fabric Paint To Change The Color Of A Cover
For my son's ninth birthday, I wanted him to have a new Bible cover. I found one he would like, except it did not come in blue. I had an idea! Paint!
I ordered special fabric spray paint, and tested a piece of green fabric that I had.
It looked blue enough. Briefly, I considered trying to prime the fabric white, but I didn't have any white fabric paint.
I carefully used #FrogTape to cover the black handle and everything else that I didn't want to get paint on.
1
At first I tried to tape the zipper while it was closed, but it wasn't working. Then I realized I could open the zipper and tape it, and that worked.
2
Even the inside snaps underneath the flaps are covered.
Then I began to spray. It took a LOT of paint, because the paint soaked into the fabric. The fabric is a little stiff, but with use it should soften.
3
I would wait to pull the tape off until everything was dry.
4
And here it is, finished! Looks great, doesn't it?!
5
(I hand sewed this piece of ribbon in the front and back to help the front and back covers stay in the fabric pockets.)
6
I highlighted a few passages, and put little arrow tabs to mark some pages.
I added highlighters, put candy in the little pockets, and put a notebook in the large pocket. No one can tell that I painted it! πŸ™‚
