The DIY Coloring Sheet pillowcase was my entry into the “ink” challenge over at SoYouThinkYou’reCrafty. It was down to the top 3 and competition was tight.
I got the idea because my girls have been obsessed with intricate coloring pages – see:
So I grabbed a pillowcase and a thin-point sharpie and a hard surface (clipboard) to stick in the pillowcase so the sharpie didn’t bleed through.
And turned on a no-brainer (requires no thought) show – anyone know which one it is??
And started drawing…
Obviously I’m no artist. But the kids don’t care. At first I thought they’d color it in with fabric markers, to make it stay. But then I thought, why make it stay! I should make this thing reusable.
I thought washable markers would wash out, so I tested it and I was right!
Pretty fun, huh?!? I bet older girls at a slumber party would even love to draw out the designs themselves, then maybe swap pillowcases and color each others’ in or something.
Such a fun thing that I though it deserved an infomercial: Color It In, Again and Again!! – - in fact, over spring break my girls came up with one, and I recorded it to show you, but now we can’t find the video camera – of course!
