Any other ideas? Oh, and does anyone know what type of dye works best?

Well, if you wish to keep the satin finish, you'll have to get a satin dye from a wedding store. If not, then any craft paint should do! I have used acrylics and glued rinestones on with Goop!!

 

Have fun!!!!!

Something that I've done is pencil on a design and then fill it in with fabric markers. I've done music notes, flowers, butterflies, and fish... my next plan is to do polka dots... and (If you're daring) you can dance in them, too...!
