Handprinted fabric has been on my list of things to try for awhile. I've been collecting supplies and making samples the past few weeks. Over the weekend I stitched up a few new goodies for the shop.
I took this picture of blackkitty and made it into a stencil. I combined it with a cute Heather Ross fabric to make the Cat and Mouse pouch. i'd like to make a few more of these prints on linen totes.
This patchwork tote uses a variety of my block printed fabrics. I used foam stamps, some lino carved stamps, and one commercial stamp. I combined those fabrics with coordinating scraps and i added a recessed zipper opening. i kind of want to keep this one all to myself. i wasn't sure how the imperfections in the prints would look in a finished project but altogether i quite like the effect.
Finally, i bought some letter stamps and I used them on the label for my do. good stitches quilt. it didn't quite work out the way i'd envisioned but i hope it looks ok.
