Picking out a self-coloured design (like on this fabric) is pretty hard with fabric paints - I find they're better for free designs, preferably on a big scale. That might just be my cack-handedness.

Personally I think I'd go with embroidery - machine would be quicker but hand would be more intricate and gorgeous when finished. j4, want to bring some of the spare fabric to the oxm34t? I have fabric paint and brushes if you want to try it anyway.

I didn't find it difficult picking out the pattern, it's just knowing what to do with it. Embroidery really, really, REALLY isn't an option.

Fabric paint sounds awfully messy -- and very difficult to pick out small patterns with brushes. Also a lot of faff with having to let it all dry, do only one colour at a time, wash brushes, etc. etc. ... I really did want to just use the pens if at all possible, because they're quick and simple and cheap (well, they're not that cheap to buy, but I already bought them, ages ago). :-/

Didn't realise you had the time constraint, so see what you mean about embroidery. Still reckon some (glittery/shiny threads) would pick out bits very nicely though. And I'm a fast stitcher. ;-)
