I have finally finished printing the fabrics for the handprinted fabric swap that Leslie Keating is hosting over at Maze & Vale. I've tried to work in my partners prefered colours, which are not my usual choices, but I like how they've turned out.
I have really enjoyed playing around with simple shapes and mixing the colours. I used very basic tools in my printing, empty reels of thread, old corks and cut out shapes from Mr's foam scraps.
Never before has a Fat Quarter felt so enormous.
It is incredibly satisfying to create your own designs on fabric. I'm clearly very new to this, but I'm rather pleased how they turned out.
This deep blue with silver highlights is my favourite.
But I like many of the testers too, I'll be adding some more images to my flickr page soon, there are many...
Playing along with our creative spaces.
