Personal touches are the new trend this fall, and I'm all for creating a fun spin on normal, everyday products. Naturally, these lovely fabric markers spotted on Mer Mag are right up my alley -- and should be up yours, as well. With a dash of skill, these markers can make anyone an artist.

Merrilee is attempting to create a tablecloth, using her pattern know-how to the best of her abilities. I think the look is marvelous, and the mustard yellow is the perfect accent for any dinner table. I can't wait to see how it looks finished!

Why not attempt to freehand your favorite pattern? Or, if you don't trust your creative instincts, simply trace a patterned silhouette, decal or paper cut onto the fabric. There is so much fun that can be had with just a few markers and a clean slate. Think of the possibilities -- curtains! bedding! blankets, oh my!
