1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Malabrigo, same dyelot, different colours - is there anything I can do? on: July 30, 2007 10:20:53 PM
i know it's been a while, but i wanted to reply.

i had the same thing happen with a baby sweater.  i left it, and almost a year later it has (almost) stopped bothering me...



look at those sleeves! ugh!

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Re: onesies! (lots of pics) on: July 26, 2007 11:46:20 AM
thank you!

i bought 2 packages of white onesies and first dyed them with procion dyes.  That in itself was an adventure- trying to keep the 3 kids away from the dye powder and the dyebath.

as for the screenprinting...  i really drove myself crazy.  i started off with the embroidery hoop and the mod podge, but quickly realized it wasn't for me.  so off to the art store for some photoemulsion- only problem was i didn't want to have to reclaim screens.  my husband made me a little frame out of maple and i used curtain sheer fabric as the mesh.  i just stretched it over the frame as you would stretch a canvas and secured it with binder clips.  in the "questions and discussion" forum someone posted a... dismissive reply to my question about using sheer fabric for a screen, but it really worked out very well.  after i'm done with a screen i just lay it flat and then i can re-use it any time.

i got these particular images from fotosearch.  i'm going to try my hand at drawing them, though-  i posted these pics on a parenting site i frequent and a few mamas said they'd like to buy some.  i can't sell fotosearch's images though, so now i need to learn how to draw...

I really like them-  i love shirts with the printing in unconventional places.

What kind of ink did you use?  I want to try printing on dark clothes, but I don't have any inks for that purpose.

the images, unfortunately, aren't mine- since i had no intention of selling, i used clip art.

but thank you - the chicken and the carrot are my favorites, even though after i dyed the onesies yellow, i thought- "ugh! yellow! what was i thinking?!?"  then i added the orange ink and they grew on me.  i printed a carrot onesie for my 9 month old as well.

these took a while...  i dyed them first, then printed them.  i just took up screenprinting about 2 weeks ago, so i'm pretty happy with how they turned out.










i gave these to my best friend patti, who's having a baby (gender unknown) in November.
