Disclaimer: Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration but not all pins lead to blogs. I tried to only pick those ideas that I could find the original creator and give credit to. Please take a moment and check out these great blogs because without them I wouldn't have content to talk about on the new My Craft Channel show Inspired by Pinterest.  

If you've never been to Pinterest and would like to check it out, you need an invite to the site to gain access (I don't know why). Just leave me a comment with your email and I'll send you an invite. However, I cannot be responsible for the time you will be spending on Pinterest!!

    1. You simply prime (aka season) the chalkboard fabric the same way you do an actual chalkboard. Simply rub the fabric down with the side of a piece of chalk (scribbling all over surface) and then wipe it off and you're good to go.

  2. That is exactly what I was wondering! What do you do, Lori, to "prime" the fabric? **Inquiring minds want to know… :)

    1. Sandy sorry for the confusion...when I mentioned "priming" the chalkboard fabric I actually meant to say "season" the fabric. You simply do this by rubbing chalk all over the fabric and wipe it off. That way when you go to write on it the first time it doesn't leave ghost lettering you can never get off.
