I signed up for the handprinting fabric swap and then all of a sudden the deadline was here! I needed to get my ideas onto fabric and into the mail! I had been messing around with stamping, as you have seen in this post, and decided it was my most reliable method. I carved 4 stamps and set to the printing of my 4 fat quarters on natural unbleached muslin. If you would like to see other handprinted swap items go here. Check out Maze and Vale‘s pinterest here.
and then, finally screen printing:
this one is for me for the shorts on the line… to be cont.
I also went about looking for inspiration which I found at some of my favorite mainstream stores:
|anthropologie: high low, coastal snapshot, unexpected artiste modcloth: wing it on in, frames and fortunes red valentino: mural jcrew: polly popover|
my recipients have some great ideas, cute blogs and I hope they enjoy their goodies!!
