Have you tried acrylic paint? It's an easy paint to work with based on what kind of fabric you're painting onto, it's a very versatile paint IMO. It's also easier to avoid mistakes if you 'sketch' your design onto the fabric with a pencil or chalk.
Oh my goodness, I am with you on that one. This is the first thing I've sewn where I got the chance to use fleece and I can't wait to do something with it again.
My problem is that I am not really painting a straight design. I am making Jack Frost's cape so the edges are just kind of ghosted with white to look like frost and I feel like my fabric paint is too heavy for it. But I am defiantly going to try acrylic too, thanks for the suggestion.
