For a recent project I’m doing called ‘hidden’ we had a chance to use the fabric printer, and we’ll let me say I’ve fallen in love with it!! :D

The pieces I did came out great in my opinion before and after being steamed! These were made traditionally in my sketchbook first and then manipulated digitally until I liked the way they were!! Here is the process of the printing and in the next post will be the final things!!

Block printing on fabric: A few weeks ago, in the spirit of experimentation, I decided to use a block print I’d previously made on fabric for the first time. I used screen printing fabric paint that I had on hand, and printed the image just as I would on paper. I taped down the fabric so it wouldn’t shift around. They didn’t turn out great in terms of print quality (I need some practice!), but I thought I could still maybe make something from them!

So today, I cut out individual butterflies and then sewed the white and purple prints together. I kind of like the effect, but now I’m not sure what to make with it!
