WEARABLE CANVAS PALLET

Blouse made from canvas and used as my paint pallet. Added a few stems and it’s ready to wear! 

Wish I could remember where I saw this idea. It seemed like a grand idea to me. Instead of trying to keep the paint off my clothes, I could get the paint all over them! First I bought some canvas from a local hobby store. I’ve never washed canvas before, but thought that might be a good idea. There was a lot of fraying after drying, but didn’t give up. Cut the pattern, serged all the seams and used the final product as my paint pallet! Turned out pretty good, a little heavy but comfortable!
