So about a few weeks back a lovely customer asked me to make a bag for her friend who loves bicycling and the outdoors. She wanted flowers on the exterior and bicycles on the lining. . . I actually suggested the bicycles. . . I could find bike patterned fabric in the store. . . No problem! Right? Um, well, apparently there is a problem. . . because I could find nothing I liked anywhere.
I looked online and in stores for weeks!
Finally I gave up and made some myself. Check it out!
Pretty sweet, no? I used my Print Gocco to burn the screen and then went to town! Man, I'm so glad they started making Gocco supplies again. . . I'm starting to burn through my stash of screens and bulbs. Here's a closer look at the burned screen:
And a closer look at the print:
This is the first time I tried the Gocco screen printing on a large piece of fabric. It's also the first time I tried it on a fabric that wasn't felt. Man is it easier to print on something smooth! I'm really happy with how it turned out and I can't wait to make more custom printed fabric.
Look at me! I'm a textile designer!!!
