Coffee Fabric Roses

Okay, so I love wearing white, but I’m notorious for being an absolute clutz when I do.  Usually I’m fine, but when I’m wearing white, I’m so extra careful that I just end up spilling on myself anyway!

So a few weeks ago I spilled coffee all over one of my white tee shirts.  I was just about to toss it when I got an idea!  I coffee-stain paper all the time for scrapbooking, so why not try it with fabric!

I decided to make fabric roses, like the Felt Flowers I made last week–only using my cut up tee shirt.  I cut out three circles, created roses, and let them soak in a little bowl of cold coffee for about 2 minutes.

After they dried, I had cute stained roses that I eventually will add to a headband or sweater (plus they still smell like coffee!)

Celebrate creativity every Wednesday with a “Creativi-bee” post, where I share easy craft tutorials, project ideas, and craft collections.

  1. You certainly live up to your name as a “Creativi-bee” …honestly! *Grin* I would have lamented tossing my favourite white t-shirt and probably relegated it to the dregs of being a dust cloth… The roses are so amazing. Thanks for sharing, I really enjoyed your “stained roses” 😉 Mands
