HOW TO PAD POT HOLDERS ... How-To: Cyanotype Print on Handknits. Christina McFall over on CRAFT has a great tutorial on using the cyanotype printing technique on textiles like handknits and crochet.

The process is inexpensive, simple to get started, and relatively low-toxic, making it a great printing method for crafters and artists alike.Most people are familiar with cyanotype without knowing it – in the form of the blue sunprint papers for kids. However, instead of buying pre-treated paper, you can buy the cyanotype sensitizer and use it to treat just about anything.
