This summer we have a new series here on the blog, we're calling "Best of DIYs". With so many amazing DIYs we have in the archive, we thought for the summer, we'd feature some of the most popular. After 8 years of blogging, so many of these posts get buried, and perhaps forgotten. So for those that are new to Poppytalk and for those that may have missed or forgotten, we bring you the best. First off, this amazing Print Your Own Fabric by Karina from Maple Ash and Oak. Karina did this DIY for us back in 2011 and we love all the little tips and tricks she offers up to print onto fabric using things you may have around the house. One of our faves!!! Check it out!
